I followed the above recipe 🙂
Canning is easy! Since you won’t need to pressure cook these, just a water bath, you can just get a big enough pot that will allow you to have an inch of water covering the jars once in there.
Water baths are pretty much for things that don’t have to be cooked so long.
Jalapenos, you water bath. Meat or beans, you pressure cook.
Gotta clean them jars! With hot water and soap.
Leave them sitting in hot water.
Get the water ready. It needs to start boiling before you put anything in there.
Place jars in once boiling.
For the jalapenos, you set your timer for 12 minutes. That’s how long they need to be in the boiling water.
Once the timer goes off, let them sit in there for the water to cool down some. Usually 5-10 minutes.
Take the jars out, place them on a towel and leave them untouched for 12 hours. You might here popping from the jars, that just means the lids are sealing. then you can mark the lids and store them. these will stay good for at least one year.
You can get loads of tools and such for canning. like special tongs that let you grip the jars, since they stay hot for some time. especially if pressure canning. There is a blue book that you can get and it gives you all kinds of recipes and how to.
Pressure canning is easy, too.. it’s just time consuming. It takes 1 hour and 30 minutes to pressure can pinto beans.
We can meat, beans, apple butter, jellies, etc etc… the list is like NEVER ENDING!
