Sterilization of Empty Jars
To sterilize empty jars, put them right side up on the
rack in a boiling-water canner. Fill the canner and jars
with hot (not boiling) water to 1 inch above the tops of the
jars. Boil 10 minutes at altitudes of less than 1,000
feet. At higher elevations, boil 1 additional minute for
each additional 1,000 feet elevation. Remove and drain
sterilized jars one at a time as filled.
