PCing Grain... Sideways?
    #1291728 - 02/08/03 07:47 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

I have 12 quart jars ready to be sterilized, but my pressure cooker will only hold one jar, and only if it is placed on its side (the damn thing is too short). As soon as my wife gets home I'm going to have her return this PC and look for a larger one at WalMart, but in the event that they don't have any large enough models, is there any reason to worry about sterilizing a jar turned sideways so long as I keep the water in the jar from spilling out of the hole in the lid?

I haven't decided yet, but if I can't find a relatively large PC for under $100 here in town I may go with fractional sterilization (and/or microwave sterilization), but I'd still like to get going with at least one jar tonight.

I have PC'd millet in Qt's sideways. it was just one jar sitting on top of 7 others (AA921 PC) Worked fine. Really, the only issue is keeping water out of it which is ot hard to do in an AA921 sitting on top of standing quarts.

This is what I'm going to have to do with a birdseed run I'm doing.
It shouldn't make a difference if you do as you said and keep water from getting into it. After all, the grain will get exposed to heat regardless, whether it's from the bottom or the side, it shouldn't matter.

Good luck!

Thanks for the replies. I returned the tiny pressure cooker to WalMart just now, and bought the largest size they had (6 qt.), which only holds 2 upright quart jars, but that's better than nooting. It's also 15 p.s.i. instead of 10 p.s.i. as was the original one.
