How do you sterilise jam jars?
Making jam often takes time between picking the fruit and cooking it, so it is important not to make a mistake in the method of storage. With good preservation, a shelf life of several months or even years is guaranteed! Sugar allows food to be stored for months, with all its vitamins and creaminess.
Generally, the most commonly used preservation method is self-pasteurisation. It consists of placing the jam while still hot directly into the jars and then turning them upside down immediately. Be sure to sterilise the glass jars and lids before filling them by boiling them for 10 minutes.
Self-pasteurisation is ideal for jams that are already acidic (pH < 3.9) such as red fruit or citrus jams. For jams that are not acidic enough, such as melon, you can add lemon juice to your preparation or opt for pasteurisation at 90° for 45 minutes. If you don't have a steriliser, you can use a large pan and check the temperature with a thermometer.
Store your jams in a cool, dry place away from direct light.
