Half ass sterilization

Is there any way around using a pressure cooker for sterilization? I boiled my jars for 20 minutes but most of them got contaminated, if I was to boil them for an hour would it be enough?

Mother goose said to the swan "Is that PCP your cooking?" and the swan replied "Yes, yes it is.

when you just boil 1 hour is minimum time make sure you have a lid on the pot and let jars cool down in the water inside the pot

If you put your head to the grass, you can hear it growing

dont open the lid in the middle of the process either. wait for it to be warm to the touch to open.

If you have to boil, boil for a minimum of 2 hours. I seem to get zero contams if i boil for 2 hours and let cool for 24.

But do yourself a favor, and go hunting on a saturday for a pressure cooker at a thrift store. The 6 bucks you will spend on it will be better all around.

Dont listen to people when they tell you that you need to boil for 2 hours. Place them in a pot with water almost up to the jars rims. Boil them up for an hour and then go put them in a closet and let them cool till the next day. You should be fine.
