How to Sterilize Glass Jars
Why should you sterilize glass jars before using them to store your preserves and jams? This is because sterilizing jars is essential to your product’s success and longevity. Sterilizing is an important part of food preservation to eliminate fungi, yeasts, or bacteria. This helps in protecting the food stored in the jar. Jars that are not properly cleaned will contaminate the food, causing it to spoil quickly.
