Is 35 minute PC sterilization sufficient?
    #3046415 - 08/24/04 11:51 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys,

Quick question... I have about 20 pf jars that have been sterlized in a pressure cooker for 30-35 mins. I thought I read somewhere that 30+ mins at 15 PSI was sufficient, but after rereading the teks, every one of em says 45-60 mins.

Think I'll be ok? or should I resterilize?

TIA!
Rizzle

if PF says 45.......then why question a master? a little longer wont hurt....but make sure to let the jars cool in the cooker, as dumping the pressure may cause the jars to "boil" and lose some of your H2o content.....

peace

Yea, Time to resterilize! I figured as much but just wanted some confirmation. Total time in the cooker is well 2 hours. 20 mins or so to get up to pressure, 35 mins processing time, then at least 1.5 hours to cool in the cooker.

So my next question, should I toss all the substrate thats been sterilized already, and use brand new substrate? Or could I just put the jars in the pc and resterlize?

No just put'em back in the PC

Just for the record I always Pc jars for 2 hours.
It may seem over kill but I never have bad jars.
And it makes good practice for when you try out whole grains

hah.

i PC for 45 minutes (start counting after the rocker starts rocking :headbanger: )
after the 45 minutes, i take a fork and stand back and lift up the rocker to let the pressure escape. take the jars out of the PC and set them on the counter, screw lids on tight and place them into box.

havent had a contam in 10 jars
