    I'm looking for another canner and was considering the All American - the two we have now are Presto. Has anyone used the 30 or 41 quart All American with two layers of quart jars at once? It almost seems too much. On the other hand, I'm considering just the 15.5 quart because I haven't done...

    People here have been sharing they can chicken and beef. Well, what about Jimmy Dean Sausage? Can we fry it, drain it, then can it? If so, how long do we process it? We've decided to get into the meat canning thing ASAP as we don't want to be without meat when/if SHTF. Kathy

    I ordered this off ebay, it was new in the un open box for $25.00. The individual that was selling it said they wanted a larger unit, however I think 6 Qts will be great for cooking dried beans and various other things for me and my wife.

    Greetings, I remember my Grand'ma was using almost every day a pressure cooker to cook vegetables or beef. Instead of taking 2 hours, it was taking only 30 minutes. I know nothing about those except it was fun as a id to see the metal thing over it doing tchit-tchit-tchit-tchit because of the...
