The followers of the whole thing do it themselves!


You want to save money, eat healthy and homemade, so why not make your own jars of fruit or vegetables, meat, fish or sauces. Sterilization can be frightening, but we assure you that it is not rocket science and guarantees optimal hygiene and promises you many advantages.


First steps!

Let’s start by defining sterilization, it simply consists of removing all the air from the jars. The primary purpose of sterilization is to make your jars waterproof. To do this, the jars will be immersed in boiling water (over 100°C), which will remove all living organisms.

Then, the hot water that has been initiated in the jars will then turn into water vapour, and thus allow the air to be removed from the containers.

Finally, once the steam has cooled, a “vacuum” will occur, which will allow the jars to be hermetically sealed during closing.


The benefits include

Sterilization is a practical trick that allows you to keep your food much longer. Indeed, fruits and vegetables can be kept for example between 6 months and 1 year if they are stored in sterilized jars. Without sterilization, your cans will tend to expire more quickly.

In addition, sterilization offers much more optimal hygiene conditions, as all organisms in the jars are eliminated, so you will not have any fear when consuming them, your food will not rot. Above all, you will have the satisfaction of telling yourself that this is homemade and made by you.
