Place food into clean jars, adjust lids and

HOT WATER BATH METHOD.
Process tightly covered jars in hot water bath for 30 minutes. Use only enough hot water to come half way up jars.

OVEN METHOD
Set filled jars in a shallow pan and add one inch of water, place pan in a 225 F. oven. After 15 minutes, turn off heat, but leave jars in the oven with door closed until jars cool.

Process jars 10 minutes at 5 pounds pressure. Remove canner from heat, release pressure to zero immediately by allowing steam to escape. This helps to draw air and moisture from jars.
