Basic Instructions for Boiling Water Bath Canning


*The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends the following procedure for Boiling Water Bath Canning for jams, jellies, and conserves.

 l. Fill the canner halfway with water. Preheat water to 180° F.

 2. Load filled jars, fitted with lids, into the canner rack and use the handles to lower the rack into the water; or fill the canner, one jar at a time, using a jar lifter.

 3. Add more boiling water, if needed, so the water level is at least 1 inch above the jar tops. Turn heat to the highest position until water boils vigorously.

 4. Set a timer for the recommended processing time.

 5. Cover with the canner lid and reduce the heat setting to maintain a gentle boil throughout the processing time. Add more boiling water, if needed, to keep the water level above the jars.

 6. When jars have been boiled for the recommended time, turn off the heat and remove the canner lid.

 7. Using a jar lifter, remove the jars and place them on a towel, leaving at least 1-inch spaces between the jars during cooling.
