Personal Notes:
I never did put my jams in a pressure cooker or canner. I would make sure that my jars were always hot and the lids were hot too. Pour your ingredients in the jars and seal quickly. I would turn my jars upside down for about 2 to 3 minutes and then turn right side up. They would always seal within minutes. If for some reason a jar does not "pop" and seal. Refrigerate and use this jar first.
