Sterilization of Empty Jars                                 

  To  sterilize empty jars, place 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  hot
sterilized jars one at a time as filled.
