Twist Top Jars
Twist top bottles are great for bottling sauces, chutneys, pickles and jams. Generally Ozfarmer only recommends these types of jars for products that only require short processing times in a water bath and not for long term storage or use in a pressure canner. This is because the glass is not a quality tempered glass designed to withstand high temperatures and the lid seals are designed to work well when processed in commerical facilities under very hot and very fast conditions which cannot be replicated in a home kitchen. For long term storage and items which are being processed for 15+ minutes in a pressure canner or water bath preserver we recommend the use of speciality preserving jars.
