Keeping jars in the right temperature

I learned the hard way. I put some pickles in the basement last year. Our basement gets the hottest in the winter. We heat with a wood stove. Some of the jars of pickles got so hot that it ruined the pickles! The intense heat cooked them all over again.

Where do you store your jars of canned food?

Oh no! I learned this lesson early on. My mom did the same thing. I store mine in an upstairs closest. It is usually room temperature in there. Our basement is too hot too.

We store ours in the bottom cabinets of the kitchen, but we use the ones that are well away from the oven and anything else that might heat them up.
