can I stack small jars in the canner?
Howdy all, I just finished canning a bunch of quarts of this and that, and now am going to do hot peppers. Since I use pint and half pint jars for them, I was wondering if I can stack one jar on top of another in the canner to get a couple layers in the canner for more efficiency? When in the water bath like that, the weight would be pretty negligible on the jar below, I would think. But I thought I would ask what the 'expert' canners there may know. I am sure an initial rote answer would be no, but what do you know about it being done -successfully or not- any why would it not work? Thanks.
