Be careful of boiling the tops. Years ago when I first started canning I had a series of jam jars that wouldn't seal. I was told by the Ball Company expert that the cause was the boiling and that the water should be kept very hot but not boiled.

If the tops have already sealed (check by removing the rings and lifting the jar by the flat lid), there is no need to boil the jars. Boiling jars equalizes the temperature of the jar's contents with the boiling water, causing air to escape under the lid which seals the jar.
