Upside Down Lid
    #334554 - 06/04/01 11:38 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

ok, in all the teks i read, they say put the lid upside down then poke the wholes... why do you want the thing to poke outwards? is it just so that if any water got on the lid it wouldnt seep in immediately? thats the only reason i can think of.... i did half of mine upside down and half right side up, it didnt make any difference for me...

Which direction the hole is facing isn't the reason for turning the lids upside down. It's to let a minimal air exchange occur. Sometimes rust gets on the bottom side of the punch, so letting it face outward couldn't hurt.

how does poking a whole in through the bottom side of the jar have anything to do with air exchange.

I guess its just a preference.  I like mine going down 'cuz otherwise it tears the tin foil when I steralize.

Upside-down so the jars can breathe.

My understanding is the reason the lids are upside down is because of the rubber seal, if it is in the normal position facing down it makes a tighter seal when screwing on the lids thus not allowing enough of an air exchange. Now Ive read that this isnt as important as it was once thought. As for the holes, if you punched the holes with the lid in the regular position then turned the lid upside down with the rubber seal facing up then you have to worry about the jagged edge tearing the aluminum foil covering. Whether you follow tradition and have the rubber seal facing up or put it on normally the jagged part should be down so as not to tear the foil thus allowing more moisture to get into the jars during sterilization. Thats my understanding anyways....


Tell me something good then I might agree with you..

it does not matter which way the seal is faced. if you want the (100%) cake to breathe more you can simply loosen the lid by unscrewing halfway....
