How to: Sterilise Jars March 30 2017

Sterilising your jars is essential to give your preserved goods a long shelf life and prevent any nasty contaminants from spoiling all your hard work. 

Follow these easy steps to clean and sterilise your jars and lids. 


Give your jars and lids a hot soapy wash and a good rinse or put them through the dishwasher.

Put jars upright on to a baking tray, place trays into a low oven at 110 degrees for about 15 minutes or until jars are completely dry. For the lids, the best practise is to boil them for 5 minutes and put them on a rack to air-dry.
