For several batches of brew, I have used my large, enamelled canning
pot for sterilizing with sodium metabisulfite. Now that it is
canning time, I find that I cannot get all the residue out of that
pot. Even though it has been scrubbed with great vigor and boiled
with plain water several times, jars that are boiled in this pot
will always have a coating of the sodium metabisulfite. A great
batch of grape butter might be endangered from this.

Any ideas or is this just a lesson?
Thanks -- nancy
