Greetings everybody, I've got another newbie question for you!
This is my first year canning and I love it. I've made apple butter, a few jams, pickels and yesterday I made applesauce.
I heard each can "ping" and I can see each lid indented. However I went to put the jars away today and can see applesauce on the outside of the jar. The applesauce is in the bands, some more than others.
Is the applesauce still safe to eat?
Why would the product leak like that?
I followed the canning recipe exactly, pushed out air bubbles, 1/4 inch space on top, cleaned the rims, nice hot jars/lids/rims, processed for 20 minutes? Not sure where I went wrong!
Would love some of your insight!
