Alternatives to pressure cooking
    #4641101 - 09/10/05 09:32 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Are there any alternatives to pressure sterilization, like microwaving for example. I realize that there probably isn't but I thought I'd just ask  :smile:

If you are using whole grains, you can try fractional sterilization. Someone posted recently about success with it in this forum. You should be able to find it a page or two back. You will probably want to buy a PC after you have tried that a couple times though. :smirk:

as stated above the classic PF Tek style for sterilization works everytime for me.

If you dont know the method of sterlization is basically....
-cover the jars with aluminum foil at the top to prevent the water from getting in the jars.

-put a cloth of some sort inside the bottom of a huge cooking pot.

-place the jars in the cooking pot, fill the pot with just enough water for the water to come up to 50% sides of the jars.

-Boil the water (not to the point where it splashing all around and going on top of the jars).  Put a top on the pot.

-Let them stay in there for 1 hour from the time boiling starts, after an hour - PULL OUT and your done.

:smile:

As I stated, if you are using WHOLE GRAINS (rye, WBS, millet, etc.) use fractional sterilization. PF style sterilization works for BRF and verm jars, not whole grains.

I don't know if he is either, I'm just letting him know :smirk:

From his other threads I think he decided to get a PC, so we are wasting our breath anyways :lol:
