Best place to store your canned jars is a cool, dry space like a basement. Unfortunately we don’t all have cool dark basements lined with shelves for our jars so we have to work with what we got. You can make do with closets, cabinets and other out-of-the-way corners. As you scope out the best nooks your home has to offer, here are a few things to keep in mind.
Make sure to avoid spots with nearby vents, pipes or furnaces that can cause temperature fluctuations. Home-canned food should be stored between 50 - 70 degrees.Keeping your canned goods out of the sunlight is also important. This is because natural light can deteriorate your product over time, stealing color and quality.
