a woman who is a long time dairy goat person, owns one of the top 10 milkers in the USA, told me she has been canning milk for years. She uses the boiling water method - a complete full hour (she stressed this). She told me hers keeps for months using this method.

Clear Jel is for canning pie filling, I believe. I read it is chemically altered corn starch. I just use corn starch in canning the pie filling. It separates, but I like it better.
