Oh my goodness. I am so happy to have found this site. I think of my Grandmother often. She could cook like nobody else, she also played the piano (only hymn tunes), I still love country, hillbilly gospel, and she saw angels. I didn't think much about that when I was young, but now I know how special a person that is.

Laura - My Grandmother always left a bit of room at the top but just made sure the beans were covered. During the cooking process the water and beans will expand and if filled to the top before hand, some of the water will be squeezed out of the jar. If a little room is left, then the water can expand without coming out of the jar and then when cooled the water will contract, but since none was lost the beans will still be covered. Hope this helps.

I grew up just out of Asheville, in Arden. Early 60's. My Grandmother canned everything, but never used a pressure cooker. She just used a water bath. Never had a problem with spoilage either. I am afraid of pressure cookers, just can't seem to get over it. I plan on water bath when I do mine this year.
