pressure canning mushrooms--faulty canner gasket

Asked May 16, 2017, 10:46 AM EDT

Pressure canned mushrooms per book. Seal would not seal properly. Jars did seal. Now, with new gasket, and 2 days later, I want to pressure again. Do I need to loosen flats, or can I simply put in pressure canner and seal as always per pressure and time for the total time as per book?

Hello,

You must reprocess them using new lids and updated processing time. Please click on this link for processing information: http://nchfp.uga.edu/how/can_04/mushrooms.html
