What temp do you use to bring your PCs up to pressure?
    #4430555 - 07/20/05 11:37 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Is there any reason not to use "high" heat until it jiggles, then cut it down to medium low?

ditto, you're just boiling water, not making eggs. it doesn't matter how fast it boils.

although if they are old jars you can break them by brining them up to fast if the have stress fractures already..... never happened to me.... kinda like force cooling your jars but the opposite

Leave the rocker/weight off til it is boiling for a good 5 minutes as a general habit, that flushes the air from the system. (canning terms as "blowing") No biggy here, but for canning it is a must on low acid stuff, like beans and mushrooms if you are vacuum packing and makes the temp more accurate. Your right, turn the heat as low as you can and still rock to save water. The cooker won't get any hotter even though the heat was way up, it is the nature of boiling water under pressure.

When you do spawn bags, you have to cook for three or four hours if the cooker is packed. That's why I always bring it up real fast and cut the heat back down. I heat up the cooker on high until it jiggles and then cut back down a single button. Once that starts to giggle at that setting (usually a couple hours), I cut back down one more and finsh it on that setting (medium).

Ouuu..you guys made me real confused. I am pressure cooking tomarrow morning, so should I bring it up to high heat and then drop it to medium? Or should I just bring it to high and do that for the entire hour? I have all new jars so I fractures may not be a problem. PM me if you can otherwsise post here, thanks alot.

Highest power possibly. You will only crack jars by dumping cold ones in boiling water, I could not imagine a normal cooker being able to heat water so fast that it would crack jars.
The more power the better since once the water starts to heat it gives off steam, if your rocker/valve is ticking over for an hour before you get a seal you will have lost some water and risk running the PC dry.
Once sealed and up to pressure lower the power to the minimum needed, this again stops steam escaping and the risk of running dry.

In my view, you want to bring it up on high and cut it back until the weight is barely moving or just about to move but doesn't. Personally, I don't like hearing that weight jiggle for hours, so I cut back until it's just about to move but isn't moving. Plus when you do spawn bags you gotta pressure cook for hours. Running the cooker on high for hours with the weight jiggling like crazy will dry the cooker out and the bags out since there is too much steam blow off. It's pointless to run it high like that.

Definitely don't run a PC on high! (bomb!) you could blow either a seal or safety plug. Excessively jiggling weight will keep pressure lower than what you want and as Blue Helex said will run your PC dry! Power up high and when the weight jiggles turn it down until it jiggles as recommended which with all mine have been 3-4 times a minute. If the weight doesn't jiggle you will also be under the target psi. IME.

Of course you dont leave it on high the whole time. Goes on high to start, then when it hits around 17PSI, stove goes to LOW...I dont use a rocker type PC, so low is enough to keep the pressure right where its at. Sometimes it needs to be between WM and LOW (less then low) if its more empty on a run..
