    So I am canning dry pinto beans. I followed the recipe in my canning book & put them in the canner. They went over 11 lbs pressure for about 20-25 mins & then I got it set. That went for about 40 mins and then it dropped below ten & wouldn't go back up. All of the jars sealed, but it wasn't the 75 minutes required. What can I do? Thanks.

    You'll have to open them and try again with new lids. Something wasn't right. What type of pressure cooker are you using? I have no experience with the new ones, mine is an old Mirro with the weighted thing on top. Maybe the pressure cooker didn't seal well or something?
