proper p.cooking
    #438601 - 10/27/01 04:48 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

OK so I went out and bought a 4.2 qt pressure cooker, the only one I could find at my Wal-Mart, and the instructions with it say you need a larger one to do canning. Well, the only problem I can see with mine is that the pressure control can only do 10psi. I figure 45 min to an hour on 10 psi should be OK though...Any suggestions? Should I just return the darn thing? (size isn't a huge deal, I only wanna do about 4-6 cans at a time). Also, if I can use this one, how much water should go in? muchas gracias...

A friend of mind was asking the same question. He also bought a PC from Wallmart that has a fixed maximum pressure of 10PSI. Let me say, THEY WORK FINE! Now he cooked the jars for a solid hour, so I'm not sure about 45 minutes. He let the jars set a full week with no containamation before inoculation. (allways give the jars at least 3 days to show any containamation, this might save money wasting a good syringe)

Place the jars on the rack that came with the cooker(if it did), and pour in about an inch of water. The amount of water has to be great enough, that after the PCing there is still some water left.
