Help! Pressure Canner problem.
    #3662962 - 01/22/05 04:22 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I purchased a pressure canner cause my second batch of pf jars were 80% contaminated and it pissed me off. Anyway, I pcooked 8-1\2 and had a problem with water getting into the jars. They were covered with two pieces of aluminam foil and I had the proper amount of water. I then pcooked 5-1 pint jars that were covered the same and no water got in. This may just be common sense, but should I raise the smaller jars with a different rack or stand. The one that came with the pc only sits about 1\2" off the bottom. Sorry if this is just a plain stupid question, but I'm doing more mushrooms then I used to for some reason.lol

Daaaamn 80% contam! Mine were 0%, I boiled for an hour. Just something to think about: It might not have been the sterilizing method, but you may have gotten contams through inoc somehow perhaps. Obviously you know better than I do.

Either or. But the water that got in was sterile if you think about it but its bad regardless..

The jars are small and sit rather lower, therefore collecting more moisture, due to being so close to the surface of the water, raise it as high as the pints are and you'll notice a noticable change :lol:

My first jars were 0% contaminated with boiling as well so I thought great for me. But my second boiled batch was the 80% loss.
