Jar sterilization method wrong???
    #3545700 - 12/26/04 10:38 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Do I run I higher risk of contams if when sterilizing jars instead of using a lid I use 3 or 4 coffee filters stretched tightly over jar mouth with a rubber band around the neck to keep it tight and then aluminum foil over that?? Did a Search but couldnt come up with any answers :confused:

Like that, yes you run a much higher risk of contams, not to mention drying out. Coffee filters are dust covers, no more. I'm assuming since you have no lids your just using random glasses for cakes or something? If PF Tek, you should be able to get away with no lid and just triple tin foil layer (double layer of tin for the lid, then a top layer for cover) and peircing threw the bottom two. Whole grains though, your gonna face some problems with no lid.
