Jam Making: A Food Safety Q

relizabeth | Sep 5, 2009 11:28 PM

Hi,

My mother in law was just over from Germany. She is a great jam maker and has an envious pantry of things she has grown and preserved herself. So, I had her teach me how to make jam while she was here. She washed the jars very, very well, but there was no sterilizing of the jars in boiling water. I had always thought that was a necessary step. Please advise.
