  10. Center lids on the jars, and place a ring on, finger tight.
  11. Place the jars in a hot water bath or steam canner.
  12. Process the jars for 10 minutes.
  13. Turn off the heat, remove the lid of the canner and let the jars rest for 5 minutes.
  14. Remove the jars to a lined, draft-free surface.
  15. Let the jars sit overnight, or up to 24 hours.

  1. This is the first time making jam so I referred to a canning book – gel stage is 220 deg. I did forget to let the batch rest before ladling bb into jars, but they look like it came out great!!
