I had the same question a week or two ago and was assured that stracking using a pressure cooker is fine. I sterilized 2 layers, broad 1/2 pints on the borrom and narrow 1/2 pints on the top. If you have space for more layers I would say the sky's the limit.

Thanks for the info, very helpful.

What the hell does a person cook in pressure-cookers besides fungi-growing jars anyways? I guess if I'm going to make this kind of investment I might as well make the most out of it eh? :)

The big one's are mainly for canning, but I've cooked all kinds of stuff in mine.

::grin:: i have a canner & am planning on making jam in a bit, for reals. my grandma makes the *best* pomagrante (sp?) jam; i'm gonna get her to teach me. pressure cookers are pretty cool actually, make corned beef, stews, etc.. cooks food really quickly & infuses them w. flavors. crockpots on steroids. ever see those late nite t-fal infomercials, where people cook food like, in 7 minutes & stuff? same principle (i think)... ::grin::

I got a 17 quart presto pressure canner that suits me fine, it holds 24 1/2 pt and 7 quarts.

I recently picked up an 2nd hand pressure cooker and I am trying to determine it's capacity, it appears to be the same as this one:



What many quarts do you think that is?

Of note to the imperically chanllenged (such as myself) I just found this great imperial -> metric chart here. Maybe The Shroomery would want to put it up somewhere in the Grow / Find section, I have been looking for something like this for some time and I've had much need for it up until now (as I am sure others have).

Any of you that want to know 'what else' to cook in a p/c, you just let me know...

They're microwave ovens for fire, and they can turn shoe leather into tenderloin in 30 min.

*serious, I use it at least twice a week for dinner.

I just bought the same one, All-American Canner #915, new though. The capacity is as follows:
Liquid Cap. (Qts.) = 15 1/2
Quart Jars = 7
Pint jars = 10

But now a question, is it wise to stack 1/2 pint jars while canning? And if so how high can you stack?

Stack all you want, just don't block the vent and safety plug.

And if using it for food, like beans and other things that foam, don't fill it more than 1/3. 2/3 if cooking a roast or something.

you can always pour in 1/2 pt jars until you fill it. 4 - 1/2 pts = one quart...knock yourself out :)

I'm gonna' guess and say that the one in the picture is atleast a 12quart job. That is a good size. You can fit lots of stuff in that. I have a 4quart mirromatic that was my Mom's. I grew up using a pressure cooker. My Mom made soup quite often, and one can cook a whole fryer chicken in one, and it will be falling off the bone tender in 20 minutes, or so, instead of a couple hours it would take boiling it non-pressured cooked. Mine works fine for sterilizing stuff, the mirro-matic comes with a round regulator so you can set it at 5, 10, or 15 pounds of pressure, and you don't have to watch a gauge. You just wait until the regulator starts jiggling, and set the burner so it jiggles intermitently. Then, start timing. the thing I do not like about mine is the size for canning/sterilizing. I can only fit 3 1/2 pint wide mouths, or 4 regular tall 1/2 pint jars in it at a time. A quart jar does not fit standing up at all, so I have to set it lying at an angle. I just bought a very used 17quart presto, with the gauge on it, but I have yet to try it. One can cook everything, and anything in a pressure cooker. soup, stews, and pot roast really comes out great in one, and so much faster. I've never even cooked a roast without one, so I'm not sure how long they usually take, but I can have one tender in about 45min.-1hour+.
Anyway, that's what I know. Be sure to ALWAYS make sure all the pressure is out before opening one. I opened one when I was a kid, that still had pressure in it, and the liquid shot up, and landed on my arm. that was quite a burn! Other than that, make sure the ' fuse' works ( the little pressure release thingy that melts out if the pressure goes too high, like if the steam cock is plugged up or something) and you should be fine. Good luck, Rxwoman.

All this cooking talk is making me hungry.. however I am convinced, I want to try using my PC for non-psychoactive food :wink:.  I have one concern however, the cooker is aluminum and when I cook jars they get a misty residue layer on the outside.  I don't imagine this aluminum residue (or whatever it is) would make for healthy eating, what's the deal here??

I have experienced the same thing. I would assume it's just the left over minerals from the boled down water. But that's just a guess. If it is right though than your fine. Try distilled water see if it does the same thing.
