canning question

Last night I canned a bunch of pasta gravy, using the hot water method.

It says to wait 12-24 hours to test the seal. How do I test the seal? My canning book doesnt tell me.

thanks!

Re: canning question

Just push with your finger on the top of the lid in the center and it shouldn't pop in and out. It should be sucked down and that means it's sealed.
