Yes there was new research conclusions in the 1990's and most of the canning recipes and books were republished. It had to do mostly with the Botulism spore and what it took to kill it, plus I'm sure there was a general update reference to the pasteurizing process whether it was using a Boiling Water Canner or a Pressure Canner.

Lots of people (and recipes) out there that don't use/support the pasteurizing process for safety. Newbies need to know the correct process, but its up to the individual to decide on whether to follow it or not.

Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.

i just opened a jar of baby beets that i put up 9 years ago, and it was fine to my surprise. they were boiled and peeled, then water bath canned, with sugar, salt, bay, black pepper, and clove.

it was a little on the softer side, but it was ok nonetheless.

i also found a few jars of pickled jalapenos, onions, and cherry tomatoes. i'll post results when i open them.

Excuse me, but are these "beets" beetroot or some other? If it's beetroot, then I have a fine pickled beetroot recipe from Ismail Merchant's Indian Cuisine which I've made to great success. The book is mislaid but I can find it later to share.
