yes, you need to poke some holes in the lids to allow for pressure regulation while cooking. otherwise, when you open them, all the air from around the jar will be sucked in like a vacuum which is no good.

Yes, your non-friend definitely wants to poke holes in the jars before PC'ing them. I've never tried it without poking holes, but I imagine if the jars didnt explode, there would be a huge pressure difference such that when you poked holes in afterwards a large amount of air would rush in and compromise the sterility. Everything sounds good, if there's no tape on the jars right now that's alright, there should be foil at least covering the lids and holes though to prevent excess water from entering.

i don't follow the reasoning. first, why would the jars explode? second, if they would explode then why would they suck air in later?

it is my understanding that people put holes in before PCing so that they don't have to do it later. because when you do it, the nail (or whatever) may introduce contams. so if you do it before PC, the contams (if any) are killed.

It's better to poke holes in the lid and to put foil on top but you can also do it by turning the inside of the lid upside down so the rubber seal poind upward instead of being on the jar and tighten the ring just enough don't use all your strenght.

If you sterilized the jars properly...a long time.
A few days is fine!

I pull the tape off at about 25% to 30%.
