A word of warning
    #669624 - 06/09/02 08:45 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

For those of you who bang their jars of seed against their hands, like I did
Let me show you what happened today. I think this jar cracked in the PC, I didn't notice. So I banged it on the palm of my hand.... crack.
Luckily I had thick gloves on because the jars were hot. It was only a slight tap to loosen the seed, could've been very very messy.




Good luck

Definitely be careful! Jars use to crack on a friend of mine all the time. She now keeps her lids somewhat loose while pressue cooking. The second that you see a crack in any of your jars, you should just throw them out. Eventually they'll crack while you're shaking them. Usually a day or so after they have time to cool.

Usually grain jars have a filter, so loose lids or not, it doesn't matter.
Prolly cracked with the heat.

Good luck

Im confused. Why were the jars hot? Did you remove them before they cooled down? Wouldnt doing this prevent them from cracking? If you remove them and the air around them is cooled they cool easily crack with a tap.

>Im confused. Why were the jars hot?

Because PC'ing at 15psi causes the jars to reach a temperature of around 120?C.

>Did you remove them before they cooled down?

They were removed while hot (they have cooled some, and are probably around 70-80?C ) to shake the grain and let sit in front of the flow hood.

>If you remove them and the air around them is cooled they cool easily crack with a tap.

This shouldn't happen, the air is not cold. This is the first time I had a jar crack. Maybe it was a defect in the jar, maybe it cracked while rattling in the boiling water.
I have seen a pyrex dish taken out of the oven and run under a cold tap, that shattered.

Good luck

I think this jar had cracked in the PC, the grains were exploded, and mushy, this had not happened in any of the other jars.

Forgot to add that

Good luck

I guess what im trying to say is, arent you supposed to let them cool down in the PC first to prevent contams?
And although the air may not be cold....compared to the temperature of the jars, it will be. And this can be enough to contribute to the cracking.
Is it common to remove them before they are cooled down?

My elves remove the jars while still hot and have only broken 2 in 6 years.

It was prolly a fluke, may have had a small crack to start with.

I always wear my snow mittens anyways.
