Proper Use of a Pressure Cooker?
    #939530 - 10/07/02 12:43 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Sorry about this one guys, ive just been having a lot of failures lately and im trying to narrow down the source. Im beginning to think that it is a result of over terilization.

Here's how i cook my jars:

1. fill PC with hot water up to inch up the jars
2. element placed on high until rolling boil is reached
3. lid is placed on PC and weight placed on lid at 15 psi setting
4. element kept on high until weight reaches a steady "bump"
5. element reduced to medium high for 70 minutes, still bumpin'

Im using a cheapo mirro PC with a weight that has 5,10,15 psi setting, and no pressure gauge. I just recently discovered that i could place the PC on medium low and still have the weight "bump", without noticing any discernable difference in the character of the bump, i.e its frequency, etc.

Am i doing this wrong? What are the signs of overcooking?

Could someone with an All American PC please describe what the weight sounds like or how it behaves at 15 psi, i.e. is it just barely enough pressure to make the weight move, or what?

As side note, what does the community know about fungicidal treatments of grains for Fusarium mold? ive also looked at this as a possible cause of my failures

Thanks a lot,
H

Maybe your having trouble because your not keeping it on high long enough but from your steps it sounds like you are doing it right... But heres what I recommend keep it on high until the pressure attained inside is =real real strong= then lower the temp.

I dont even use a gauge because I lost mine so Im forced to stick a fork :smirk: into the stop spout lol and it still works good on regulating the pressure I just gota let steam out every so often.. And I PC for 45 mins after pressure is achieved.
