canning on a glass top stove - can it be done?

lilaki | Aug 21, 2009 08:19 AM

hi chowhounds,

i'm new to the world of canning/preserves/jams/etc. i inherited a boat load of canning supplies - one canning pot, a rack, lifter, funnel, tons of different jars, bands, lids, etc.

i was hoping to try my hand at making some blueberry jam this weekend (seems easy enough) but now i'm reading that you're not supposed to use a canning pot on a glass top stove.

can anyone confirm this? and/or provide more information?

the canning pot that i have is a big black and white-speckled thing. it looks like something you'd boil corn in. it's very light.
