Can food be re-canned if the lid does not seal?
Canned food can safely be recanned if the unsealed jar is discovered within 24 hours. To re-can, remove the lid and check the jar sealing surface for tiny nicks. Change jar if necessary, add a new treated lid and reprocess using the same processing time.
Do you really need to leave a certain amount of headspace in the jar?
