PC Water Question...
    #3422100 - 11/29/04 04:23 AM (12 years, 7 days ago)

On another note, I've had trouble with all the water in my PC being boiled away during the PC process. This problem only seems to come from using the shorter version of the half pint jars which I can fit 6 in at a time, the long neck one's I can fit five and don't have the problems with. The problem is I want to add more water so they can cook the proper time without all the water evaporating, but if I add additional water, the bottom row of jars is likely to get submerged and water get into the jars. I've just been covering the lids with foil and don't want to resort to taping the jars shut, because it seems to create a vacuum in the jars. Whenever the tape comes off or is punctured, air gets sucked in, along with potential contams. So my dilemma is how do I add enough water so it doesn't evaporate prematurely, but without submerging the bottom row of jars? There isn't any room to raise the bottom layer off the bottom, because it barely fits two rows of jars in the PC. I know I could just PC with fewer jars, but this seems ineffecient. Any suggestions?

how many inches of water are you putting into the empty PC before adding jars? Is your PC leaking at all? How much does the rocker jingle when you're at the appropriate pressure?

Maybe about two inches initially, but the water level rises when I put the jars in, and it comes up to about the band lids when I put them in. I'm afraid if I put any extra water in they'll get submerged in the PC process.

what do the directions for the PC say regarding water level? I only use 1 inch of water and It easily lasts 2 hours. with 1/4" to spare in the end.
