waterlogged jars
    #1209661 - 01/11/03 03:47 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

hey does anyone else have problems with their jars getting full of water when they pressure cook? i use as little water as possible (about an inch or so) in the PC and double wrap my jars tightly with foil, but it seems like i still get a jar here or there that is waterlogged. any suggestions?

Maybe your foil got ripped or torn, I would put on a second layer to be safe.

how are you sure the jars are water logged? when you double wrap, do you have the lids on or do you just wrap it with foil? and what is your receipe make up?

i use half pint jars with lids screwed on lightly (maybe too lightly?) with the innoculation holes covered with masking tape. i then wrap one layer of foil from the top to the bottom of the jars and then another layer from bottom to top. but on the ones that waterlog you can definately tell as i can tilt the jar around and watch all the excess water filling the gaps and crevices in the substrate. i don't think the foil is tearing.

oh yeah, when i unwrap my jars their is water between the glass and foil and the tape is wet.

you should be fine, with your jars, i dont use foil, and i leave my jar lids quite loose. ive never had a water logged jar, i think moisture is building up on your jars in between the foil, relax. again what is your receipe?
