Canning Applesauce and
the jars are leaking.
I've been canning for a long time and I've never had a problem with the
jars sealing. Recently I was canning applesauce, and every

I cleaned everything, used
new lids, and reprocessed, and it happened again. It's not a
not enough/too much headroom because I checked both times.
checked to make sure there weren't air bubbles before processing. We
did some raspberry jam and that worked fine.
Any idea why the apples
aren't turning out?

minutes and then take out your jars.
Let me know if that helps. I know how frustrating redoing 2
batches of applesauce must have been!
