A Timely Repeat. Cloudy Canning Jars?


this happened.

I was sterilizing canning jars in a boiling water bath and, when they came out, they were like this.

At first, I could not imagine what the problem could be, but then I went onto the internet. Turns out, our water, which is actually pretty good from Lake Michigan, was the problem.

Fortunately, there was a wicked simple solution.

White vinegar.

For the cloudy jars, soak ’em in vinegar, then wipe them clean.

To process the jars, and when actually canning, add about 1/2 pint of white vinegar to your canning pot and bring to a boil.

Sterilize your jars and then fill and process them with the vinegar solution.

No more cloudy canning jars.

I love it when a plan comes together.
