Would you/do you stack jars ???
I always thought this was a no-no, until I saw Alton
Brown stacking sealed jars of jelly in his cabinet on an episode of "Good Eats". Even though I believe he had rings on
his jars, the entire concept just boggled my mind.
Anyhow, the reason I'm asking is because my DH built me a beautiful step-back cupboard for my canned goods. Since it is 7 foot wide and just as tall, he made most of the shelves tall enough to fit quarts, with the exception of the first shelf on the upper tier which is 20". This is the shelf I most favor for jams/jellies/butters.
So, any feedback ??? I always remove rings and wash jars prior to storage, but would worry about seal failure were I to stack them. My cupboard fills up rapidly this time of year, but there are other options. What do you do?
