the whole process
by Tina Janis
I am canning Jalapenos. I found a recipe that uses vinegar and preserving salt (boil vinegar add salt, solution to the jarred sliced Jalapenos).
I have stuffed and filled the jars, put the lids on and now need to process (put in the pressure canner). Can that wait until tomorrow?
Can I pressure can in the morning? I have about 21 jars to do.
What do you think?
No you can't wait until the next day. The reason is the jars need to be hot when they go into the canner. If you wait you'll need to dump the jars, reheat the vinegar solution and repack your jars... basically start over.
My suggestion is to go ahead and just push through and process them now.
Line up your beautiful jars on the counter in your clean kitchen when you are done. When you wake in the morning you will be so pleased at your jars you will be glad you finished.
