    Default ring popped off

    hi everyone
    just canned 7 qts of tomato juice in my pressure canner. one of the
    rings and lids popped off the jar, while it was canning. the jar did
    not break and the ring was not bent or misshaped, I was able to screw it
    back onto the same jar and it screwed on tight. I of course threw away
    the lid and ring. has this happened to anyone else?? does anyone know
    why this would happen??

    Never had that happen, only thing I can think of is the ring was put on
    a little crooked and the internal pressure of the jar finally blew it
    off. I would use that jar first and keep it in the fridge until you do.

    i suspect you put the lid/ring on too tight to
    begin with. i'm not a pressure canner expert
    though, so the others here may have better ideas...
