Sterilize milk bottles or jars by boiling them twenty minutes in water.
Fill sterile bottles or jars nearly full of milk, cork them with baked cotton, place on rings in a deep pan and fill with cold water so that the water may be as high outside the jars as the milk is inside, place the pan over the fire and heat until small bubbles appear around the top of the milk (about 1550 F); remove to the back of the fire and allow the bottle to stand there 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature as quickly as possible, and when milk is cold remove the bottles from the water and keep in a cold place. In summer milk should be pasteurized twice a day for babies.
