All jars and bottles need to be thoroughly sterilized before using for preserves. Wash in soapy water and remove any old labels. Dry them and put in the oven set at 150 degrees C / 300 degrees C. Gas 2 for 15 minutes before filling. Celophane jam-pot covers are ideal for all preserves except pickles as the vineger will gradually evaporate through them and spoil the top of the pickle. Many preserving bottles and jars have attached lids with rubber seasls. Please remove the seals before sterilizing.
