Picking Up The Slack

 Susan has been supervising me as I fill jars and operate the canner. Yesterday I did green beans, and today I finished 15 pints of kraut. One lid blew or it would have been 16. I think we have 6 or 8 more pints of kraut to put up tomorrow morning, and then I must pick beans!

It's very rare but once in a while a lid won't seal during the boiling water bath, and even rarer is when a jar falls apart during the water bath.
You finish the process and end up with a lot of slightly sticky jars that must be washed.

John: Yup, gotta clean the jars this morning! It was a Chinese lid we picked up a few years ago, and it must be out of spec. Kraut cleans up easily.
