As with any item that you use to canning you should make sure that there jars that you are using are sterilized and clean in order to avoid illness. You should also make sure that the seal is tight in order to not gain moisture inside the jars. With these jars your spaghetti sauce can last for months.

Making sure that the jars that you are using will not allow mold as well as making sure they are clean to avoid illness or food poisoning is important when you are canning any item. Make sure the sauce is cooled enough and then you can placed them in the jars.

As with anything containing tomatoes, spaghetti sauce should be canned using the pressure cooker method. There are several good books on preserving and canning; my favorite is the Blue Ball manual. It contains specific pressure cooker canning directions for tomatoes.
