Think I have just done a Canning No-No. Please advise.
Was canning my first tomatoe sauce (Ellie Tops chunky tomatoe basil pasta sauce) last night, using two water baths.
After 30 mins of a 40 min processing I realised that my second canner did not have enough water due to evap (but still ove the lids). So I moved the cans, without tipping them, into the large first canner which was merily boiling away. Unfourtunalty as I move the jars and put them into the new canner, the lids popped shut.
I left them in the new canner for the full 40 mins.
Now in the light of a new day, I am thinking that they may need to be thrown away (they have just cooled).
Would you use or discard.
