Sterilizing Canning Jars

If you're doing canning, try this. Wash your jars and check the tops of your jars. They should feel like a piece of flat glass, nice and smooth. Put them in the oven on a cookie sheet, open side up, at 200 degrees F until ready to use. This gives you more room on the top of the stove.

That is a great tip. I never have enough room on the stove top when I'm canning cause I've ony got two burners. Thanks!
