Use a large saucepan and place a kitchen towel at the bottom. Fill with water and add the bottles when the water is boiling. Make sure they are covered with water by one-two inches. Leave the bottles in the boiling water for ten-fifteen minutes depending on size. If processed properly, they will keep for at least one year.





I have been a vegetarian for almost all my life and I love to spend time in my kitchen where I invent and prepare tasty meals for my family and friends. Cooking is a lot of things but mainly a passion and a way of expressing myself. I don’t believe in strict diets but more in finding a balance between what’s tasty, healthy and sustainable. Food matters, both for people, animals and environment. I am a dedicated canner with have a huge passion for the art of preserving. I love to swap my latest creations at the food swap network that I run in my city.
