Kitchen Hints and Tips
Canning and Preserving
- Attach canning labels to the lids instead of the sides of jelly jars to
prevent the chore of removing the labels when the contents are gone.
Jams and Jellies
- When boiling jellies and jams, a large glass marble placed in the pan is
better than stirring with a spoon to prevent burning.
- To determine when the jell point has been reached, put a little mixture
on a very cold plate and draw a path through it with a knife. It the path stays
and the jelly does not run together, the jell point has been reached.
- A ball of nylon net cleans and smoothes cucumbers when making pickles.
