i just pressure canned for the first time yesterday. i did greenbeans from a family members garden. i read the book that came with the canner cover to cover to make sure i understood how it worked. i was confident in using it. it got up to ll lbs of pressure(although it did go above that for a little while when i was trying to figure how low i had to turn the burner to keep ll lbs) and cooked for 25 mins. took it off the stove and set it in my sink for a little over an hour to release steam and cool down. when i opened it the water in the bottom of the canner smelled like green beans and had a tint to it. as i removed the jars from the canner (only 3) i notice the liquid level in the jars was down about a third. so the tops of the greenbeans are not in liquid anymore. is this a normal occurrnace or is this batch a bust? i cant find any information about how the stuff is supposed to look once you take it out!!! thanks for any input!
