Based on current canning guideleines and recommendations:Can I use a pressure cooker for canning
A real trooper you are. I've "suffered" through a few times like that too. You left out the asparagus and sourdough bread!We have two pressure canners. The one is worn around the ring and does not hold pressure well. The latest one my wife bought for one dollar at a yard sale. And we got a new lid seal at ace hard ware. We can up deer meet almost every year. I got a little stupid and over filled a few jars this time so we had to eat pulled venison sandwiches for supper several times after our early doe season. We still have several jars of peaches sweet corn and venison. It is to expensive to run the gas to can veggies. You can buy stuff on sale cheaper. But canned deer meet sandwiches and peaches on ice cream is high living. I suggest it if you have a wife that wants to do it. I kill them hang them quarter and cut them she cans them and we eat fried potatoes and venison loin with onions while we do it. I suffer through it.
