canning anaheim peppers what happened!!!??
I sure got a bumper crop of anaheims this year. I have three 20 gal tubs full. I thought I would try canning them. I roasted and removed the skins. All was going very well. I filled up my first batch of jars and put them in the canner at 10lbs for 35 min. When I removed the lid all of my juice has sucked out of my jars and into the water. My jars seem to be sealed but I don't trust it because there is very little liquid left in them. I opened a jar and the peppers are all mushy. What did I do wrong? Would I be better off to freeze them? I gotta hurry and do something.
