White dust on my jars
Question, I've just started canning occasionally in the last couple of months. First few batches have come out fine (yay!). But I find that after sterilizing my jars, or after the final water bath, there's a very fine white dust all over the jars and the rack. I'm assuming this is mineral deposits from the water, or perhaps something from the pot (just using a large stainless steel pot).
Is there a way to prevent this? I've seen comments about putting vinegar in the water, does that work on this problem? If so, how much vinegar?
Thanks for your help!
