REPROCESSING UNSEALED JARS


     If  a jar fails to seal, remove the lid and  check  the
jar-sealing  surface for tiny nicks.  If  necessary,  change
the  jar,  add a new, properly prepared lid,  and  reprocess
within  24 hours using the same processing time.   Headspace
in  unsealed  jars may be adjusted to 1 1/2  inch  and  jars
could  be  frozen instead of reprocessed.  Foods  in  single
unsealed  jars  could  be stored  in  the  refrigerator  and
consumed within several days.
