Pickled jalapenos floating
Today I ventured into pickling some jalapeno slices. I followed a recipe to the T, and also followed the instructions for sterilizing correctly, as well as the proper procedures for the boiling water bath. Anyways, I left 1/2" headspace in my 1/2 pint jars, as directed. Well, after processing, the pepper slices decided to unpack and float to the top, with some not submerged in the liquid. Is this a problem?
