I have a big bag of cranberries that I bought at Costco. I'd like to make some sort of compot to give to friends. I bought some of those glass jars with the rubber rings in the opening and would like to use them to sort of can my compot.
I don't really have a precise recipe so I don't want to process the resulting compot. I just want to maybe boil the jars and maybe the rings so they at least start out sterial. Is that adviseable? I mean will the rubber ring stand boiling?
I mean to ask recipients to keep the compot in the fridge and eat within a week or two.
anybody have an actual canning recipe that uses these glass jars?
