Cooking in Pot – That’s How It Works

Preserving in the pot: Prepare glasses

Before you start preserving, you should prepare your jars and the contents well.

  1. First, the glasses must be sterilized. You can do this in different ways.
  2. It is important that the glasses are treated at least 100 degrees Celsius. This kills all germs and bacteria.
  3. To ensure that your glasses do not shatter when they are filled, place them on a damp tea towel after sterilizing.
  4. Then fill the glasses with the prepared jam or vegetables. Make sure that about two to three centimeters remain free from the top edge of the glass.
  5. Close the jars immediately after filling.

Preserving jars: Here’s how

To preserve your glasses in the pot, you need a large pot and a wire rack.

  1. Place a grid in the pot. Your glasses must not stand on the bottom of the pot when preserving. If you don’t have a grid, you can put a kitchen towel on the bottom of the pot instead, for example.
  2. Place the glasses in the pot and fill it with water.
  3. Bring the water to a boil. Ideally, this should have the same temperature as the contents of the glass.
  4. Otherwise, your glasses may shatter. It is best to check the water temperature with a thermometer.
  5. The preserving time begins as soon as bubbles appear in the jar.
  6. If the preserving time specified in the recipe is long and the water evaporates quickly, add a little more water.
  7. After the preserving time, take the jars out of the pot and let them cool down.
