Jar leaked during processing - seal/contents safe?
First post to this forum! I searched 15 pages back, but didn't see anything that helped, so...
My fiance and I were canning some apple pie filling (out of the Ball Complete book), left 1" of head space as instructed, and put them in our processor. Every jar leaked, but when we opened one, the seal was quite good. We just started canning this season, and this is the first time we've come across this issue. I'm concerned about food particles potentially trapped under the seal affecting the integrity of the seal over time. Even though some liquid leaked out during processing, is the filling inside safe to store at room temperature?
Thanks in advance for any advice/assistance!
