Preserving Food Safely - 01600593


If a jar fails to seal, remove the lid and check the
jar-sealing surface for tiny nicks. If necessary, change
the jar, add a new, properly prepared lid, and reprocess
within 24 hours using the same processing time. Headspace
in unsealed jars may be adjusted to 1 1/2 inch and jars
could be frozen instead of reprocessed. Foods in single
unsealed jars could be stored in the refrigerator and
consumed within several days.
