Why do you have to sterilize jars in water, why can't you just put them in the oven at high heat?

Answers

You most definitely can (and should) sterilize your jars in the oven . . . but notat a high heat.  Wash them well in warm soapy water, make sure you rinse them thoroughly then place on a baking sheet in a cool over (140C, 275F, Gas mark 1) until they are dry. Fill them whilst they are still warm to prevent the glass cracking when the hot filling is added.
