Canning

Asked September 5, 2020, 1:44 PM EDT

I recently pressure canned several jars of vegetable beef soup and chicken soup( no noodles). All my jars sealed. About three weeks later I learned that I used 5 pounds of pressure when I should have done 10 lb of pressure. Is there any way to salvage my soup? Is it possible to reprocess them in the canner again using the correct weight? I processed them for 90 minutes the first time. By the way I live in the Highland area of Lincoln County. Is 10 lb of pressure correct? Thank you for your help and advice.
