How To Sterilize Jars...Very Important

The easiest way to sterilize jars fir freshly made marmalade etc. is as follows:

Preheat your oven to 100 degrees C.
Step 1:  Wash jars and caps very well with hot water (no soap).
Step 2:  Put a kitchen towel on the surface something hard which fits in the oven.
Step 3:  Place your jars inverted over the kitchen towel.
Step 4:  Place jars in a preheated to 100 degrees C for at least 15 minutes.
Step 5:  When taken out of the oven, invert while hot using an oven mitten or whatever.
Step 6:  Pour inside the marmalade, hot as it is, to the brim of the hot jar.
Step 7:  Close with caps.
Step 8:  Invert all the jars so as to create the vaccuum between the marmalade and the cap.
Step 9:  Let cool overnight.
Hope the above help.
Cheers.
