Pressure cooker questions.
    #3133725 - 09/14/04 11:45 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hi guys,
I have a 12psi 6qt pressure cooker I bought from wally mart. Will 12 psi be enough to sterilize? Im thinking surely 45 mins would do it.In the pf tek it says use 12psi, but a few other places say 15. Also I have the Ball Wide mouth 1/2 pint jars. In the pf tek it says punch the holes with the rubberized side up. Can I do it the opposite way so it will be rubberized side down while incubating. Also when sterilizing sould I tape the holes up and leave the lid loose. Will tightening it up after sterilization be any problem? I don't wanna make the jars crack and I don't wanna risk contaminating it.

Thanks for your help guys,
Ryoko

I don't have any experience with 12psi.

Leave the rubber part of the lid facing up. When sterilizing, tape the holes and leave the lids loose but secure. (This is in the tek isn't it? Why are you asking this?) Tightenting after sterilization will not be a problem at all.

12 psi is fine for both PF Tek and grains.
