peach canning question
Hi Gardenweb forum:
I have a problem with peaches "floating" to the top of a quart jar after canning.
My wife and I just canned peaches. We used the cold pack method, and poured a simple sugar syrup over halved peaches arranged as tightly as we could arrange them in a Ball quart jar.
Then, we processed them with our pressure canner/cooker. We waited for the steam to flow freely from the pressure hole, then covered the hole with the 5lb wt that came with the cooker. When the weight started to sputter we started our 10 minute timer.
Are they supposed to float to the top? Some of my cans now look like they were only half filled!
What should I do next time?
