Sterilization of Empty Jars                                 

  To sterilize empty  jars, put them  right  side up on  the
rack in a boiling-water canner.  Fill the  canner  and  jars
with hot (not boiling) water to 1 inch above the tops of the
jars.  Boil  10  minutes  at  altitudes  of  less than 1,000
feet.  At  higher  elevations, boil  1 additional minute for
each additional 1,000  feet  elevation.   Remove  and  drain
sterilized jars one at a time as filled.
