Dear Frugal Upstate
I am in a real pickle. Yesterday i put up 16 jars of figs, boiled the lids and jars, filled them, but did not water bath them. Can I do that today or is it too late. I am so upset, I guess i was tired and didn’t follow through. Please advise, I really need your suggestion. Thank You.
I’m sorry for your wasted time, effort and food–I know it must hurt your heart. But food safety isn’t worth messing around with! Don’t give up, keep on canning. We all make mistakes now and then.
