Also asked, do you need to sterilize jars for pickling?
Jars for Canning Empty jars used for vegetables, meats, and fruits to be processed in a pressure canner need not be presterilized. It is also unnecessary to presterilize jars for fruits, tomatoes, and pickled or fermented foods that will be processed 10 minutes or longer in a boiling-water canner.
can you sterilize jars in the oven? Heat the oven to 275 F/130 C. Do not be tempted to heat the oven any higher, or you may risk the glass breaking. Arrange the jars on the oven shelf, making sure the jars are not touching each other. Close the oven door and sterilize the jars for a minimum of 20 minutes.
Besides, how do you sterilize jars for pickling?
Wash jars in hot suds and rinse in scalding water. Put jars and lids in a kettle and cover completely with hot water. Bring water to a boil, covered, and boil jars 15 minutes from the time that steam emerges from kettle. Turn off heat and let jars stand in hot water.
Do I need to boil jars before pickling?
In order to actually sterilize jars, they need to be submerged in (covered by) boiling water for 10 minutes. When the process time for canning a food is 10 minutes or more (at 0-1,000 feet elevation), the jars will be sterilized DURING processing in the canner.
