Hello. We're kind of new at canning. We just did some apple butter and when I brought them out of the water bath, I could see that there were air bubbles in the apple butter. Is that okay? Thanks!

Next time you can try putting a dab of butter in. I'm talking teeny tiny. It helps reduce frothing. I always have to do it with jam. I haven't tried making Apple butter, but I've made jam and had that happen. Didn't hurt the jam, just looked funny to me. And a pea sized amount of butter fixed it. Its what my canning book recommended.

The bubbles won't hurt it at all. We've been canning apple butter and applesauce for years; sometimes you have bubbles, sometimes you don't. Either way is ok. Curt

I agree with the others comments. However, if you ever see the bubbles moving after they have been on the shelf for awhile, it is a sign of spoilage.
