Help with Steam Sterilization
    #3841534 - 02/27/05 04:04 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I'm using a three-piece vegetable steamer (pot, basket insert and lid) for my sterilization. I'm reading the instuctions on doing this and it say to "Gently steam the jars by boiling for an hour in a tightly covered pot." So what that mean? Leave my stove on high and boil it? Or get it to a boil and put it on med-Hi?

Also says "Add enough water to the bottom of the pot to cover about one half inch of the bottom of the jars." Does all the jars have to have 1/2" of water on all of them? Or and I stack them on top of each other and leave it in there?

Thanks,
Cray
:peace:

It means use boiling water during the entire process. Yes, you can stack your jars provided you have a tight fitting lid for your pot. The trapped steam will heat the jars.

Just line up your jars in the bottom of your steamer until you can't fit any more, then make another stack on top. You want a full boil for this, so leave the heat on high with a tight lid. 1-2" of water is fine.

people get ratings when they do something to deserve a rating man, but anyways i tried to sterilize 4 1/2 quart jars for 90 min. i had a tight fitting lid did it like the teks say and every one of them got contamd. so if 90 didn't work for me then i would suggest to you to do it longer unless you are doing some 1/2 pints then maybe 90 will be alright.
