Boiling water question...
    #914379 - 09/28/02 08:33 AM (19 years, 23 days ago)

I can't get my hands on PC and even if i could i don't know how to use it and i'll probly blow up the house with it :smile:

well this is my question, when boling jars in the regular pot, are jars supose to be half way in water or is it ok to put one on top of the other one, and can i open the lid once in a while to check the jars so they don't brak or anything...?

I don't do that, but it would work fine. I say steam them for 1.5 hours.

Yes, but don't. That isn't going to do anything beneficial.

as long as you have holes in the lids (4) they won't break.  Don't worry. If you are going to do this a lot buy a canning pot. It has a stand in the bottom about 2" high to hold the jars out of the water. Less than 20$ at wally mart. For 40$ you can get a little P.C. that will only hold 1/2 your jars (if you do 12). With the stand you don't have to worry about boiling out all yer water, or breaking the jars from the burner heat. I put a little band of foil around the top to hold more steam in.. but I don't try to seal it( or it might blow up)
But what do I know I'm still waiting for my first shroom.
Shitake of course.

:wink:  :cool: :grin: :tongue: :laugh: :wink:

Just make sure you keep filling it up with water, (w/o getting any water on the jars or they will crack).  We have fried some jars pretty good b/c we forgot to put more water in there. :blush:
peace
:crazy:
