I made bean soup and canned it. Later the lids started to pop. How can I keep this from happening?
By Linda from Maryland
If you have already canned them and they have sat on the shelf for a while then bacteria has formed. Dispose of the canned bean soup immediately. If you just canned them and the lids pop that means it is sealed. Test it by pushing down on the lid. If it moves something is wrong and do not eat it. If it is down and unmoveable it is ok. Be sure you have canned them properly since some foods require a pressure canner. Hope this helps.
The popping lids mean your jars are sealed.
