steaming question
    #2059026 - 10/31/03 12:15 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

when you steam the your sub. jars. i put the lid on on the pot. but steam comes out. i cant get it to stay completly closed where no steam comes out. i even put a rope on the lid to keep it tight. but steam is still pouring out of it pretty heavy. should it be fine? enough steam to starilize it?

When someone steamed their jars they used a semi tight fitting lid -- and than put mad tinfoil around the edge of the pot -- then forced the lid on so it was minimal steam loss.

dont worry too much about it, when a friend did six jars recently, he just used a relatively loose fitting lid, it let out some steam, so he just balanced a heavy frying pan on top of it with the handle anchored on to the stovetop. 90 minutes later: sterilized jars, he had a 100% success rate

You cannot get a perfect seal with a steamer; it's supposed to leak. Just keep the lid on and you'll be fine. Even a pressure cooker with a precise machined sealing surface leaks a little.

your lucky it did leak when you tied a rope around it,if it had sealed up it would have built up pressure and eventually exploded like a bomb.
please dont try that again.
