Christine Shuck Don't be afraid, the pressure canner is your friend! I bought this YEARS ago and was afraid to use it.There is all this hype and fear-mongering about pressure canners, but if you follow the directions and don't try and open it when it is still under pressure, and maintain it well, a pressure canner is no more dangerous than any other tool in your kitchen.A week ago, I swallowed my fear and canned enchilada sauce and chicken stock in it for the first time ever.And then I bought several ebooks from a canning...
