1: Is that bad ?
2: What did I do wrong ? Lids not tight enough ?
3: Is there something that can be done if it is bad ?
4: Can I lower the water level in the canner ?
5: Why did my mom dress me in crappy clothes as a kid ?
Thanks in advance.

2. proly too much water in the pc or the jars were not elevated above the water level enough.
3. not really, over-saturated jars very rarely colonize properly and generally succumb to bacterial contamination in short order.
4. better to raise the jars. less water can mean running dry and scorching, thus ruining, your jars. so you want plenty of water. but the water should not come up onto the jars, which means you need some type of platform to place the jars on up a inch or so from the bottom of the pan.
5. saves money

SA's aren't very different from B+. SA's are nice, cooperative fellows.
