Hi. I made a mistake and fell asleep before my canning round ended....I used a presto electric canner (I know there are debates on those, I've done tons of research and I'm comfortable using for the short run - I use both stove top and electric (this when doing larges batches and want several pots or small batches....) Anyway - I fell asleep. I only had 3 quarts that I was processing. Only one of them sealed (not sure why, could be leaving in the canner) - is the one can that sealed safe, even if it was left in an enclosed canner all night? It was not hot but really warm still when I woke up. Also, assuming they were safe, I reprocessed the other two.....since they were still really warm, I kept them in their original jars and only replaced the lids. They sealed. Are those safe, not boiling again, just going straight from staying overnight in the canner and reprocessing right away, before 12 hours? They got much darker in color the 2nd round....
