Do I turn my jars upside down after I remove them from the water bath?

No, do not turn your jars upside down after removing them from the water bath. Jars should be left undisturbed for at least 1 hour so they can seal and start to cool down.

If you are concerned about fruit float, read this FAQ:  My jam has separated. I have all the pulp at the top of the jar and juice underneath. What did I do wrong and how can I fix it?
