Well I finally made and pressure canned my marinara sauce Thursday and Friday! I am so proud of myself since I actually pressure canned myself - usually my dh does the pressure canning part for some reason! Its fun to work with him in the kitchen, but I like to be able to learn things for Myself.
So combined Thursday and Friday I pressure canned 14 jars of marinara. I had two, one each batch, that didn't seal which I was amazed at. I used freshly sterilized jars, completely new Ball lids, and did everything the same and I still had two that didn't seal, and when I tried again the next day, (yes, sterilizing everything again, using new lids, boiling the sauce again, etc.) one still didn't seal! So now it's in the fridge, I'll repack it and just freeze it for use during the week.
Annoying the cook will result in smaller portions
