Not following the rules of sterilization

Jars with cucumbers

Jars should be washed with baking soda and water and then it is best to sterilize them in the oven. However, if the container has not had time to dry completely, put it upside down. If completely dry then put it neck down and such jars will not explode.

It is also important to know that the smaller the container, the less time is needed for its sterilization and vice versa.

Hostesses know that it is very important to maintain a small fire on the stove for the first five minutes so that the container filled with vegetables or berries had time to warm up completely. You can see that the sterilization process is finished when the contents of the jar change color.

Why it is important to wrap the jars in a warm cloth

You should wrap the jars in the end. As the sterilization process continues in warm jars, it is important to know that the longer the jars take to cool down, the longer the process will take!
