Comment by Andrew Cumberland yesterday

Yes indeed.  Luckily it's only a sauce so you can't over cook it. 

Comment by Sophie on Wednesday

nice. can you re-process with new lids?

Comment by Andrew Cumberland on Wednesday

No loss at all Sophie.  Those ones got put in the fridge and will be used tomorrow.  

Comment by Sophie on Tuesday

Great to know Andy - sorry for your loss! Some people try it (Guildbrook Farm on Youtube) but it's a pain enough as it is. There are the Tattlers lids we could try - I think they work well for certain goods but less so for others seems to be the verdict?

Comment by Andrew Cumberland on Tuesday

Yeah, alright.  I listened to Youtube.  I tried a lid recyle - 3 out of 4 failed.  I don't recommend it.  I understood enough of the theory to run the test - and had 6 hours patience.  Yeah, nah.  Not worth the trouble.  New lids every time.

Previous blog post now leads to this thread.  Trying to keep myself organised as well.

Be careful changing recipes Andrew! Yes good to know processing times to work it out - this one is the best site for that

That was quick arrival Sophie.  I got the Blue Book but had to pay $30.  About to go and look at the google link.  I really intend to use them as  base recipes which I will play with.  I'm not real propa good at sticking to recipes.  Seeing the times is actually the most helpful to me.
