Weird color on tinfoil
    #3367040 - 11/16/04 01:00 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I just finished boiling the jars for about 55 minutes, and when I took them out and cooled, i noticed a greenish color on the top of the tinfoil. It doesnt look like any air got in to maybe it is just discoloration in the foil itself?

Yea well then I hope 55 minutes is enought, because there was no water left in the pot and the cloth had already started to burn.

The aluminum will react if it is touching the side of the pot. some kind of metal to metal reaction.
