  You'll need all the basic equipment for steam pressure canning, plus a
  large saucepan. This recipe is for the hot pack method only.

  2. Organize and prepare equipment and work area.
  3. Wash greens thoroughly in several changes of water and pick over
  4. Cut out any tough stems and mid ribs.

  sticking (usually the water that clings to the leaves is enough).

  to rise around the edges of pan. Before packing, cut through greens
  several times with a sharp knife or kitchen scissors.

  within 1 inch of tops. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to each pint jar, 1
  teaspoon to each quart, if desired. Pour in boiling water to within 1
  inch of top of jars.

  release air bubbles. Add more boiling liquid to within 1 inch of tops.
  8. Wipe tops and threads of jars with a damp clean cloth.
  9. Put on lids and screw bands as manufacturer directs.

  hour and 30 minutes for quarts. follow manufacturer's directions for
  your canner.
  11. Follow basic steps for steam pressure canning, 10 through 24.
