pressure cooker blues
    #1365315 - 03/11/03 09:29 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I tried PC'ing a 1 pint birdseed jar last night. Only to find the PC run out of water after 40 minutes. I must have had 4 or 4 inches of water in there. How much do i need? And about the tempertaure of the stove. I had mine on about 4. And the weight was rocking pretty nice. But it ran out of water...Hmm...

I need some help!

Sounds to me like the seal on your pressure cooker needs replaced.

Was steam escaping from around the lid?

>>And the weight was rocking pretty nice

i know this runs off topic, but i fucking hate Pressure cookers without a guage, that fucking weight pisses me off. I just want to throw it out the window.

This comes as a result of my all american getting some nasty deformities, and a low budget replacement from presto was bought instead of paying huge sums for a new one.

I know it's not amazing, but I'm poor, and it sure as hell beats the big old pot-o-water

go to the goodwill/thrift stores. I have found a big ol pressure cooker with canning rack, guage and good seal for 6.99. This thing holds like 9 quarts, and god know's how many 1/2 pints. (it's a 25qt maid of honor). It took me 3-4 times going to that goodwill to find it. dont buy one that need's work or has missing parts, as they are hard to find the right one's, and you will often find a better one at the same store later.

Also, the goodwill around here has mason jars 6 for $1. i got a case with brand new lids for $2. depending on your area's canning rate, you should be able to find jars easily.


as for the water, i would suggest using a lower heat.
