I have a couple of canning questions. I have been canning for many years, but I always have several cans that will seal and then a few days or even a few weeks later, I will go get a bottle and find some that have unsealed. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I make sure the rims are clean before I put the lids on. Do you have any suggestions?
Also, I lose quite a bit of liquid out of some of my jars. Why does this happen? I process them all the same. How hard of a boil are you supposed to cook them at and do you leave the lid to the water bath on while you are cooking them or not? It's so frustrating to me to find bottle every year that have unsealed. I have tried doing different things, but it doesn't help. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!
