How to Make Your Own Canning Rack from 1840 FarmNo Canning Rack?  No Problem!

Have you ever wished that you had a canning rack that would adjust to every pot in your kitchen? I did. I never seemed to have a rack that I liked or that fit very well into whichever pot I was using for canning.

Then I discovered that I could use my stockpile of canning jar rings to make a rack in any pot. Simply arrange the rings in a single layer on the bottom of a pot and proceed as usual. The jars sit on top of the rings and I don’t have to add another single use piece of kitchen equipment to our farmhouse kitchen. Problem solved!

  1. What a great idea! I’d always wondered how I could use those ‘less-than-perfect’ rings that I keep saving because “I know there has to be another use for them somewhere”. Now I know. Thanks for the idea.
