Sounds like youve got parent problems! (can only do it one day of the week...)
I used to do them in a pot for 80 mins or so with OK results. Still a PC is the way to go..

put about an 1 inch or inch and a half of water in a large pan, and boil for 80 or 90 minutes. it is important to have a lid over the pot to keep heat in. you should boil again. if you dont use a lid all the heat just rises out of the pan.

Its called fractional sterilization scape but isnt needed for PF Tek. Boiling is fine without a lid, your friend was probably thinking you were trying to PC.

make sure you have the water halfway up the sides of the jars and I would use rubberbands and tin foil to make sure no water gets in there.............. def have a lid on that pot.

steam holds higher temperatures than boiling water. Boiling water will stay at 100 degrees until it vapourizes at which point it has a higher temperature range. This range is needed to sterilize. 100 degrees won't do it. You NEED the lid.

A small, useable pressure cooker costs $30 at wal-mart. It doesn't have a pressure guage but maintains at least 12-15 psi. 30 minutes at this will sterilize. $30 is cheaper than 8 hours of time boiling!
