moisture in jars
    #3320801 - 11/04/04 06:50 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hello all
I'm a newbie and have a question. I'm using a pressure canner to sterilize (I've used just a pot of boiling water before but decided to go for the extra garauntee of sterility with a PC). When I took the 8 1/2 pint jars out of the PC, 4 had gotten moisture inside and the substrate (BRF, Vermiculite, H2O) looked like it was soaked and gummy in places. I have been putting foil over the jars and crimping around the sides but cutting off the foil so it doesn't go on the bottom of the jars. Should I be wrapping it all the way down and around the bottoms? Can anyone tell me the right way or is this something to expect no matter what?
Any help is appreciated.
