How to can using Mason Jars

Please find below instructions on using Mason Jars for the marmalade which you may find useful.

Canning Guide

1. Fill the hot boiled jars with the hot marmalade. Leave a space of about 1/4 inch (0.5 cm) of top of jar. Wipe jar rim removing any food residue. Centre hot sealing disc on clean jar rim.

Screw band down. Place jars back in the canner (boiling pot).

Ensure that all jars are covered by at least one inch (2.5 cm) of water.

Cover canner and bring water to a full rolling boil before starting to count processing time. At altitudes up to 1000 ft (305 m), process – boil filled jars – 10 minutes.

2. When the processing time is complete, turn the stove off, remove the canner lid, wait 5 minutes, then remove jars without tilting and place them upright on a protected work surface.

Cool upright, undisturbed 24 hours; DO NOT RETIGHTEN screw bands.

3. After cooling check jar seals. Sealed discs curve downward and do not move when pressed.

Remove screw bands; wipe and dry bands and jars.

Store screw bands separately or replace them loosely on jars, as desired. Label and store jars in a cool, dark place. For best quality, use home canned foods within one year.

Note : I boil by jars before and after. Also, altitude is important.
This is the altitude chart for guidance, Click HERE to see it.

The ingredients proportions are from Bernardin. The jars come with a little recipe book sometimes and fruit proportion has been taken from there as well as some of the boiling instructions.
