Need sort-of canning advice by tomorrow night

Wendy Lai | Nov 10, 2004 09:27 PM

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?
