  2. (start this several hours before you need to make the buttercream)*
  3. Pour the content of 2 cans into two separate 8 oz jars and close them with lids. Place a tea towel on the bottom of a large pot, then add the jars on top. Pour enough water to cover the jars by about 2 inches. Cover the pot with a lid and cook on low heat (simmer) for 1.5 hours from the boiling point. Maintain the water level above the jars at all times.
  4. Remove from the water and allow to cool completely. Put the cans into a full pot of cold water to speed up the process.
