What Am I Doing Wrong?

I just pressure canned 4 pints of chicken stock. I turned it off, let the pressure return to zero, removed the weight, and checked that no more steam was being vented. Then I removed the lid, and waited. The stock in the jars was still boiling and the lids were popping up and down frequently as more air escaped. Then one of them spewed stock a couple of times. Why does it do that? Does anyone who pressure cans know what I'm doing wrong here?

  1. No idea... I remove the weight and wait 5 more minutes THEN remove the lid, but I'm not sure it makes any difference. I've only canned stock 3 or 4 times, so I'm not an expert.
