Definition:

A method of canning in which hot foods are ladeled into jars, closed and then turned upside down. Since there is no processing time involved, this method of canning is considered extremely dangerous.

According to current USDA guidelines, all home canned foods need to be processed in a water-bath canner or a pressure canner to remove the risk of bacterial contamination.
