It often happens that canned food starts to explode and loses its flavor after a while. This is because it is important not only to follow the recipe but also some other recommendations.

The FoodOboz editorial team has gathered information for you and will tell you why you should turn the jars of preserves over and put the lid on.

After cooking the preserves, an important step is to turn the jar over and put it on the lid. Even though our grandmothers always did this, modern housewives often skip this step. But in vain.

Do I need to turn cans of food over?

First of all, you need to do this to check the sealing of the jar. In simple terms, this trick will help you check whether you have rolled up the jar tightly and whether it will leak. Because as soon as you notice any signs of this, you will be able to transfer the contents to a separate container and cook it a second time. In addition, it is important not only to turn the tin over but also to cover it with something warm from all sides.

How long do you need to turn jars?

  • If it's compote, 30-60 minutes is enough, and then it can be left to cool at room temperature.
  • If it's cucumbers or tomatoes, you need to keep them in this form for at least 6 hours until they cool completely. After that, you need to watch the jars for at least two days to make sure everything is fine.
