Can I use a regular bath canner for 1/2 gallon jars or is a special sized one required?

RE: canning jars

Do you have the jars & regular bath canner on hand? See if you can get an inch or two of water over the tops of the jars. If so, then the regular canner should be okay.

I've been using an electric turkey fryer for my water bath canner, purchased at Costco for $89. It would definitely be deep enough for 1/2 gallon jars.
