didn't poke holes in lids :-\

My friend didn't poke holes in the canning lids, and after boiling for an hour and a half he let them sit over night. When he went to them the next day the lids where down. He's guessing by boiling them without holes in the lids caused a vacuum and sucked in the air around the lid in to the jars causing the lid to be pushed down. Will the jars get contaminated by doing this? Or did the pressure inside the jar cause the lid to be pressed down and there's nothing to be worrying about? Thanks for replying :-)

they probably will be allright, but you'll have to be extra careful when you inoculate them, since you'll have to open up the jars. use an oven or a glovebox to be safe.

you will have to open the jars to inoculate. the vacuum may suck in contams. but that's where you are so i'd do it in a really clean place and put holes in the lids beforehand next time.

Is it possible to poke the holes now? Just sterilize the nail and use a hammer to hit the nail to poke the holes?

yes. you'll still get some air sucked in but i guess that's the way i'd go in the same situation.

I figured use my stove... Take the top or bottom tray all the way out. I don't think it matters what tray I use? Turn my stove on the lowest and inoculate....
