Thanks everyone. I do have one tip....I read two different websites for canning these things and one said boil chunks for 2 min before put them in the jars...another site said just "raw pack". Well from what I see, the first 7 qts look great, the second 7 qts look good, and I am sure they are good being they all sealed, but there is stuff, looks like they could have released starch or something, but the jars are just not as clear as the first batch.
Snappy, yes, the ones I boiled first were clearer...the ones I "raw packed" seemed to kinda overcook and a thin layer of cooked potato dispersed into the water, other than that, both look the same. I will boil and hot pack them from now on, I guess for personal preference because I want them as clear as possible. As for color, I pre-soaked in dissolved vitamin C tablets, 500mg X6 per gallon of water before boiling or raw packing..
