Making Preserves

Oven function: Bottom heat
• For preserving, use only commercially available preserve jars of the same size.
• Jars with twist-off or bayonet type lids and metal tins are not suitable.
• When making preserves, the first shelf position from the bottom is the one
most used.
• Use the shelf for making preserves. There is enough room on this for up to six
1-litre preserving jars.
• The jars should all be filled to the same level and clamped shut.
• Place the jars on the baking tray in such a way that they are not touching
each other.
• Pour approx. 1/2 litre of water into the baking tray so that sufficient moisture
is produced in the oven.
• As soon as the liquid starts to pearl in the first jars (after about 35-60 minutes
with 1 litre jars), switch the oven off or reduce the temperature to 100°C (see
table).
