Canning Cranberry Chutney - air bubbles after processed

by Karen
(Ketchum, Idaho)

I processed a batch of cranberry chutney and ran something plastic around the end. After it cooled every jar had bubbles. Should I be concerned?
Thank you for your help.

Hi Karen,

Air bubbles are often found in foods after processing. It depends on the thickness of the product.

As long as the air bubbles don't start moving around and looking more like they are fermenting, it is perfectly safe. Fermenting is different than a stationary bubble. Moving bubbles would indicate a problem.

This is all assuming you have used the correct canning methods and processing times.

Hope that helps
Sharon

Marla, I've not made cranberry orange chutney (though it sounds delicious!). The USDA does have this recipe.
