What Equipment Is Needed for Canning?

In addition to your ingredients, you absolutely need:

  • Kerr or Ball jars in the appropriate size for your recipe (thin-walled jars, like mayonnaise jars, won't do, they may break!)
  • NEW lids with sealing rings (never reuse these)
  • Screw bands (can be reused)
  • A large pot to cook your ingredients
  • A very large pot to seal your jars (unless using the inversion method for jams and jellies)
  • A shallow pan to scald your lids
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Tongs, or jar lifter, or some way of handling scalding hot jars (I LOVE my jar lifter!)
I Love my jar lifter!
