How long do your lids take to POP?

13 years ago

So today I made my second batch of Annie's Salsa, even better the second time by the way, but I had a bit of a scare afterwards.

Up to now, all of my jar lids have popped within 5 - 10 minutes of removing from the BWB. Only two did that this time, but I know the 24 hour rule of not touching the jars so I was nervously waiting (while cooking dinner and bathing kids), and after an hour, the remaining jars finally popped down, and I breathed a big sigh of relief.

What determines how long they take to pop? How long do yours usually take, and how long before you start to panic?
