Sterilisation and all its related counterparts
    #633786 - 05/17/02 01:28 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Hello
Let me start off by bringing to your attention how unexperienced and rather foolish i am.
I have no pressure cooker, nor do I have any means that I know of of getting one, as I am broke, and my friends arent really cookery people.
However, I do seem to own a steamer, would this be better than merely sticking them in a big pot and boiling them for an hour or two?
If so, how long should I steam them for?
Let me finish by telling you exactly how likely I am to fail. Very likely. Yes, thats right.

I thank you for your time
The ouncinator is always right

Why not just use that their big pot you spoke of???
I`ve only ever used a pot and without fault each time.

Was considering buying a PC but I still haven`t seen any problem with the pot.

Anyway

Believe me a PC is the way to go. Understandably you do not have the money right now for one. So I would go with the next best thing. Your steamer. Use a medium to med high temp for about an hour and 15 min. Good luck.

I have used a steamer as well. Just double the time that you sterilize everything.

Steaming them/boiling them is basically the same thing.

Set the jars on a washcloth, so they arent resting on the bottom of the hot pot. From the inital start of steam coming from the top of the pot, thats when you start timing it. Cook/steam/boil them for about an hour and 15 mins.

You only want about an inch of water on the bottom, as you dont want them splashing up into the jars.

I have had great sucess, 1 jar out of 50-65 jars have ever been contamed this way.
