Presto Weights jiggle speed?
I played with the Presto weights last night for the first time. Had some siphoning. I'll play again tonight. I fear the pressure was too high. 5 out of 7 quarts look fine. 1 was down an inch or so. One was down 2 inches or more and did not seal.
Blanched green beans, hot pack quarts, 10 pounds, 25 minutes.
Stove is a Jenn-Air electric coil cook top with the special canning burner installed.
How do you determine how fast that weight jiggle should be? I was counting a good 4 ticks/jiggles ((1)mississippi (2)mississippi (3)mississippi...) per second. Is there a video somewhere that shows the weight jiggling at the right speed? That was the speed at which it was jiggling when it started, so I tried to maintain it. Decreased the burner from 9 down to 5 and it was holding the tick speed.
