Two-piece metal lids are most common. To prepare jars before filling: Wash jars with hot, soapy water, rinse them well and arrange them open-side up, without touching, on a tray.

It is important to follow any canning and processing instructions included in the recipe and refer to USDA guidelines about the sterilization of canned products.
