Ok, Oopsie Time
I am not new here but I like to lurk :)
I'm canning corn today and I've used my weighted pressure canner in the past successfully. But today I am cleaning out my fridge & pantry, trying to up date things and throw out the old and outdated items.
Here's my problem, I unthinkingly put my pressure canner's weights on when I added my corn quarts, locked up my canner, and walked into the other room to clear out my pantry and make room for my canned corn. I was waiting for the pressure to build and "whistle" but when I didn't hear it, I checked on it. It's already boiling and processing. What do I do?
I am supposed to process my quarts for 85 minutes at 12lb of pressure, but it's been going at 15 lb of pressure for an hour. Is that enough time? Will it be processed enough? Remember I didn't let it vent for 10 minutes like I normally should, because I forgot to leave my weights off until it's vented. Can anyone give me some advice for my knucklehead move?
