Once boiling, continue to heat, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

Fill your jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace.
Wipe the rim of the jar with a paper towel that has a bit of vinegar on it.
Put on the lid and band/ring and tighten band to 'finger tight'.
Load your filled jars into your water bath canner.
Make sure the water is an inch or two above the tops of the jars.
Bring water to a boil and boil for 5 minutes.
Remove jars from boiling water bath and put them on a clean towel.
Soon you'll start hearing the 'pings' of your jars sealing!
Leave the jars alone while they cool down.
When they are cool remove the bands/rings and wipe the jars clean.
Be sure to label your jars with the content and date.
