Jars Were Touching During Canning
I water bath canned a batch of applesauce in quart jars last night.
The rack for my canner holds seven jars snugly, but with a little room around each jar.
However, the rack bottom doesn't have anything built in to keep the jars from moving.
During processing, two of the jars got jostled together by the boiling water, so they were touching during the 20-minute processing time.
After processing, all jars "pinged" and sealed fine.
Should I be concerned?
Thanks, in advance, for your replies.
