After heating up my kitchen, trying to sterilize all my canning jars, I went online to see if there was a better way. There is! You know when something is aggravating me, it seems like it's the push I need to search out and find a better solution. I found this here.
Wash each and every jar by hand or in the dishwasher. If you do use the dishwasher, make sure that all the residue is rinsed clean.
