Tightening lids before sterilizing (PC)
    #1548520 - 05/14/03 05:04 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Afoaf has only grown twice. Both times sterilizing BRF jars by boiling for 1 hour with the lids tightened. However, I've heard that many people here sterilize their jars with the lids loose in a PC.

Question: When using 2 piece "self sealing" canning lids, is it ok to tighten lids all the way before PCing? I don't see why it would be any different when boiling....

It doesn't matter if the lids are tight as long as you know how to use a PC. If you don't let the PC cool down before opening the lid, then the jars will crack.

Afoaf found out why jars should go in the PC with loose lids;he put them in the PC tight then when he placed the jars in his glove box. He couldn't open them with his hands then he had to get a jar opener in the glove box and sterlise the box again .He says that he doesn't think it matters with the PF Tek as long as the lids are with the seals up.

Jars can break or explode in a PC if the lids are sealed and there is a sudden loss of pressure. Boiled jars are usually submerged in water so the lids must be sealed to keep the water out.

The water should never be deep enough to cover the jars bc the vermiculite on top is supposed to be dry isn't it? ive done it both ways and havent had any problems. just give them time to cool
