Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

Good instructions, Patti. I wish someone had told me about how important the cool down part was when I first started out. I tried to hurry things up and ended up with broken jars and lots of work and food wasted. I even sold my canner to a friend because I was so frustrated. It was probably another 20 years before I went back and tried again after someone explained to me what I had been doing wrong.

Hi All !'
I thought I'd put together a ...'
"Steps on How to Use a Pressure Canner" Cheat Sheet !
I Love canning in the winter, like soups, stews, broths/stocks, chicken, ground meat,baked beans, dried beans, etc...
I can Put Up these things through the winter so when veggies and fruit come in in the summer, I can dedicate my time to those.
Feel Free to Print this out or Save it to your computer for future reference !

STEPS ON HOW TO USE A PRESSURE CANNER

First...Always check your sealing ring gasket and make sure the vent pipe is clear !

For HOT PACK
1. Add 3" of water on canner.
2. Turn on heat/burner to medium high
3.Put in filled jars when water is Hot but not boiling.
4. Put on lid and lock.
5. Turn on heat to high.
6. Wait until the vent pipe has a Full Steady Stream of Steam.
7. Turn on timer for 10 minutes.
8. After 10 full minutes, Put On Weight.
9. Wait until the pressure comes to full pressure and then start
timer from the recipe for whatever you are canning. Adjust heat (up or down) to keep your pressure.
10. When timer goes off, Turn Off Heat and wait until all the pressure
is gone...Then and Only Then, you can take off the weight.
11. Unlock lid and rest the lid on top of the canner for 5 or so minutes, then
take off the lid and wait 5 minutes or more, then take out the jars.
* Steps 10 and 11 are to help prevent siphoning. (siphoning happens when
the jars are taken out of the canner to fast, going from a really hot environment to a cooler environment !
12. Take out the jars and put on a towel (Do Not Put on a cold/granite counter or the jars my crack.
13. Leave them alone for 12-24 hours !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
14. After 12-24 hours, take off rings and check lids for a good seal !
15. Store jars in a cool, dark area...
16. Enjoy All of Your Hard Work ! :}

FOR COLD PACK
Start Burner on Medium....

I hope you find this helpful !
