Pressure Canning

Tammy Brose (Warren Ward, Jamestown NY Stake) contributed the following:

I would like to encourage people to look into canning with a pressure canner without being afraid, if they aren't using one already. I can meat all the time, especially when me husband gets a deer during hunting season. We also grow way to many potatoes to store before they go bad, and I can can them up and they keep very well. I don't like to keep all my eggs in one basket. If the electricity goes out and all the stuff in my freezer has to be used up quickly, I still have canned vegies and meat that will be good. Maybe I am preaching to the choir, but I am surprised how many people won't use a pressure canner for fear of its exploding or something. They are much safer now than they were 40-50 years ago.

  1. I use a pressure canner for all my canning and love it. I feel safer as it seals much better and faster as I did use the water bath once to compare. Just read the directions for your personal pressure canner and it's so easy and fast!
