Secrets for Canning Applesauce — Home Food Preservation — Penn State Extension

airs can be the cause of spoilage, therefore my feeling on this jar is that it is not shelf stable and will be consumed in short order

Hm. I understood it to say that microorganisms can get into the jar while the jar is being filled, but that processing will kill them. In any case, there is going to be air in the top of the jar for head space, which is not considered dangerous.

Oops, Did I blow this?

I agree, your bubble is just relocated head space. In a water bath canner, the stuff in the jars boils, and can move around.

Personally, I think it would be fine, since the contents boil in the canning process air is bound to move around. There is air in the headspace too! I would be worried if it appeared after the processing.

Looks delicious!

Just so you know, I wasn't trying to change your mind about whether this jar of apple sauce is safe. I just want to understand for myself the details of how canning works.

This was a suprisingly tasty AppleSauce!
All I did was peel, core, cut the apples into eight even chunks,
put them into an 8-quart pot with about 1/2 a cup of filtered water.
Cooked them covered for about 15 minutes or so until the fruit was tender, took the stick blender to them, sparingly as not to mush it too much,
we wanted chunks, gave it a taste, and BAM!
I did add a half of a packet of Splenda (Mom likes sweet stuff) and a couple'a good shakes of ground cinnamon just before spooning into the jars. But really it was sweet enough without the sugar substitute,
I used all Fuji Apples, DELISH!
