ProbIlem with vacuum sealing applesauce

Postby ride1mule » Mon Oct 09, 2017 9:32 am

I am having trouble with my applesauce molding when I vacuum seal the jars. I boil the jars and fill with hot applesauce, and have even tried adding i/2 tsp of lemon juice on top before sealing with no luck. All jars have mold after a week even though sealed. How many pounds of pressure should I be pulling? Any suggestions?

You can't vacuum seal anything liquid!!

Only dried foods can be vacuum sealed.

Sorry you lost all your applesauce. That is heartbreaking after so much work!

Are you water-bath canning the applesauce because you can not vacuum seal applesauce.
If you are water-bath canning, are you:
1. Leaving the proper headspace
2. Wiping/cleaning the jar rims
3. Using only New lids
4. Processing for the right amount of time for your elevation

The only time I've ever had a problem with lids not sealing was when I got cheap and bought Walmart jars. They are No Good. I will never buy them again.

Thank you all for your help. I've dug out the pressure canner and pressuring the new jars at 5# for 10 minutes. thanks again to everyone.
