jars
    #4525752 - 08/12/05 09:53 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Just found out 2 out of 3 of my jars are contaminated... but i have three jars that i have not used yet that are still in pressure cooker all sealed up and ready to go. they have been in there since august 1st. the three jars that are in there are corn with a half inch of verm on the bottom. if these 3 jars were to be contaminated would i have seen it by now ? i checked them last night and did not see anything like my last two... also, the last three jars i did i inoculated them all at once and only one survived do you think it was the corn cause i didnt rinse it once i simmered...

well, if it is a problem with the jars, the ones in your pc would have been showing contam by now as well. It seems that they are getting contaminated inbetween inoculation.

make sure when you knock them up you rub the needle down in rubbing alcohol, flame, then rub down with rubbing alcohol again.

Then knock up a jar, and repeat the above steps in between jars. Either that, or possibly the culture is contammed, but most likely not.

and you should follow all the steps by simmering etc. It not only gets rid of contams, it adds moisture to it. I have not seen too many people have success with corn.
