Bottling pasta sauce...?

You all seem to be such proficient chefs. Well here is a place to share some of that cooking knowledge. Or do you have a cooking problem? Ask away. Jams and chutneys go here too.

can you just use the jars that you get bottled sauces in and pop button lids or do you have to use kilner jars and things like that?

I have a new polytunel and high hopes of a glut to store this summer.... :iconbiggrin:

We always use second hand jam jars, providing the lids have a pop-up centre and the seal looks intact.
So far we have had no problems keeping tomato puree type sauces for well over a year, and have been doing it for yonks.
Our Kilner jars are too precious for sauce and they are used for bottled fruit ... plums, goosegogs etc.
