Leifheit jars - questions?
I visited San Francisco this weekend and found these gorgeous jars at Sur La Table. I bought a case of 6 .5 liters that had rings and lids included. These will be my private stock as I'm not sharing these with anyone - whohoo the price!
Anyway, the instruction cookbook that comes with it seems insane. It says old lids may be reused as long as you boil for 10 minutes (!?). And of course you can use your oven for canning? And doing water bath for string beans and carrots? The recipes also seem to be lacking on complete instructions.
I hope anyone unfamiliar with canning will toss this booklet out proceed with more accepted canning processes. Are these methods used in Europe?
But the jars are very pretty! I can't wait to make some jams or jelly in them. One jar for me and Ball for everyone else!!
