Re: Canning Need HELP Quick...

makes it easier if you have an asparagus steamer... but if not... fill a pot with water that would be deep enough to just cover the canning lid, bring to a soft boil, put the jars in, let it boil for about 5-10 minutes.

sometimes if your jar is hot enough, the lids are hot enough and you're ladeling in hot stuff, you don't need to boil. Ladel what ever you're canning into the jar, quickly clean off the threads, toss on the lid and ring, finger tighten it, and while it's cooling, it'll seal itself.

good luck! Whatcha canning? I made jams and tomato sauce for Christmas presents.

I'm doing raspberry jam...but I'm using the nocook stuff(I know, I know not as good prob. but I'm a newbie to this, hopefully next year I'll go full blown )

So within that if I'm putting in jam that isn't hot can this method still work or do I need to boil them after I tighten the lid? If I do need to boil do I just put the cans in boiling water and for how long??? Sorry for all the Questions, like I said I'm new at this
