For condiments and other ingredients that I won’t be using quickly, it helps to scald the jars to keep them fresh. Put the jars, any utensils you will use to fill them including funnels and spatulas, in a clean sink. Boil some water. Pour it over the jars, caps, and utensils. Pick up with tongs, and put on a clean towel to drain and dry. They are now ready to fill.
