Nasty problem with PC
    #4671563 - 09/16/05 11:19 PM (11 years, 1 month ago)

I have a 23 Quart Presto Pressure Canner/Cooker. Instructions say for canning to fill it up with 3 quarts of water, used the canning rack and atleast 7 jars got water in them, maybe more.

What can I do to stop the water from getting in? The second time around I used 3 layers of foil on each jar and even made sure the tops were really tight, and amazingly all the 7 jars had even more water in them.

Now im worrying about the jars that I inoculated because there might be water in them. What will happen if there was water in the cakes during inoc?

Any input is appreciated, in a bind.

3 qts is way too much water!
I use about and inch-inch1/2 of water in the bottom of the pc.
this is good for an hours worth of pc'ing.

I use a Presto also. Load your jars and fill with water until the water is 1/3 of the way up your jars. Bottom layer of jars, obviously, if you're stacking them. I have never had that problem using mine.

IF you're messing up the bottom layer, make the bottom layer out of empty jars? I use a cheap pressure cooker ,and it boils off alot of water in an hour, probably about 1-1.5 litres and it's only made for 5 pint jars. . something else that might help, use two layers of foil and wrap it tightly. . if you're still haveing trouble, wrap a wire around underneath the lip on the jar below the metal ring. . .just a few ideas.
