Quick URGENT question!
    #4139848 - 05/05/05 11:47 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I cooked and sealed up 3 pint jars of whole brown rice, then I found out the seal on my pressure cooker seems to have broken, it just lets out steam all day long with no pressure retention at all.

Can I store the jars in the refrigerator until I am ready to pressure cook them? It would be overnight...

Yes.

Heat treat them as soon as possible tho.

I've left jars in the fridge for 2 days with no ill effect. Although they were popcorn which were PCed for 45 min to hydrate.

I boil my jars for an hour and got only one contam so far...so your jars might be alright.

I also don't see the harm in PC'ing them again...

Will the boiling water sterilizing method work for grains?

Or should I just put them in the fridge?

Boiling grains is a tek in question. I don't have a PC (yet), and I am boiling up three jars of rye.

There was a tek here somewhere that I was reading..it suggests that you boil the jars, let them incubate for a day, boil again, incubate, and boil again. So boiling it 3 times should sterilize it.

As the days go by the endospores germinate and are easier to kill...that's the theory.

The seal on my PC looks ok, but where that little window for steam to escape by the handle is it just pours out steam and never heats up or anything, it just doesn't make a seal.

If it were me, i would refridgerate them until you can get a new gasket.

If you are alright with possibly losing your jars to contams due to insufficient heating time, then go ahead. Either way, no big loss right? Only 3 jars...

Boiling them 3 times over a period of time is called tydallization or fractional sterilization.

It will work prolly, although i've never tried it. Its a microbiology method.

Do you put the weight on at the beginning, or once the PC has started steaming?

If i wait to put the weight on mine the vent just keeps steaming. Sometimes i have to readjudt the lid while its heating.

WARNING: Only adjust the lid if NO PRESSURE has built up yet. Also, the steam and hot water can burn the shit out of you. BE CAREFUL IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO THIS.

I can use my other pressure cooker, but only one jar at a time, so I'm doign one jar tonight, another tomorrow afternoon, and the third the next day.

I have tried all the things you mentioned no-tone, this thing just keeps leaking. I add the rocker before everything.
