I've had some friends encounter some problems with breaking jars when they have been canning this year. I thought a post about tips on how to keep your jars from breaking would be a good thing. I'll start with some ideas - toss your own in too.
- Never can a jar that isn't full (half empty)
- Temperature changes are bad too. If you are canning in a hot water boil, don't ever put a cold jar right into the hot water. You will more than likely end up with a broken jar and a mess.
