I have a new pc, and have carmelized my karo tek every time I have tried. I have even cut the cook time in half, any suggestions? Anyone ever had this problem?

do you have a stand-off plate?.... if not fold up a towel or rag on the bottom and only pc for about fifteen min or so after the steam starts escaping

Heat slower, people report that too high initial heat may be the cause, but also keep the sterilization heat as low as possible while still maintaining pressure.
Mr B was able to resolve his carmelization problem this way.

I am so mad I could tear out my hair. I have managed to burn every jar Ive done so far. Guess I just need to keep trying, or give up altogether.

Try putting empty jars under the ones you are cooking. Might help.

Pam, don't "tear out" your hair....that would be red seeing red
Just keep trying...someone who can take care of kitties
like you can... can do it

Thanks for having faith....Just got a batch out, and its ok. I guess persistance is the key here. Too bad it only took half a bottle of karo to get my 3 little jars going. I had visions of buying a case of the clear goop. Hope it will be ok. I could only pc for 10 min after the boil began.
