Lacie’s Easy Peasy Pleasy Tips
- Using brand new jars? Sterilize quickly by placing right side up in a large pot. Fill the jars and pot with water. Bring water to a boil for ten minutes. Go ahead and throw in the lids and rings too. Let cool or carefully use a canning tongs/lifter to remove from water.
- Use a canning funnel to pour strawberry mixture into jars. This makes things so much easier and keeps cleanup to a minimum.
- Use a ladle to pour mixture through the funnel.
