  • My new favorite kitchen tool!

    This past season I got my first pressure canner. It is my favorite tool! Now I have the ability to put up all kinds of low acid foods. I already boiling water bath fruits and high acid stuff but the canner opens the door for a wider variety of foods. It's an All American, model 915 and it works wonderfully. Usually when the growing season is over that's it for putting up fresh produce but now I can watch for deals on meat at the supermarket and put it up all winter.
    There are no emergencies for those who are truly prepared.

              I have the All American 920, it will do 7 quarts or a whole bunch of pints if you have a rack to double stack on. Got mine on Ebay about half price. Lowe's has jars and canning supplies on sale half price till the end of Jan, search for "canning" and have them shipped to your local store and you don't pay shipping. You have to select your local store for it to show you the discounts.
