Kilner/chutney question
« on: October 02, 2017, 15:11 »
Hi folks
So I've already made some green tomato chutney, very nice, used some old jam jars, sterilised of course.  Thought I'd make some chilli jam next and bought some little Kilner preserving jars as no jars left and thought they'd make nice gifts.  On inspection the lid comes in two parts.  When I looked on their website it appears I'm supposed to heat the jars up in a big pan of water once they've been filled to complete the preserving process, using all this posh Kilner equipment of course.  Does anyone actually do this?  It just seems to mean more work and costly electricity.  I've never done this with jam either....thoughts appreciated!

In America they do think it is necessary to waterbath chutney and jam, something we never seem to have done in the UK.

As long as the jars and lids are sterilised before use and filled with hot chutney/jam and closed down immediately you should get a reliable seal between jar and lid.

Thanks Mos, that's what I thought.  Better get that chilli jam started now 😋
