i am so happy i got a pressure canner

I just wanted to share that i was able to get a pressure canner at a yard sale today for 10.00 it is in excellent condition I took it over to the cooperative exchange and they tested it for me and told me that i got a deal of a lifetime. i even got the instruction booklet i have always water bath can and wanted a pressure canner but they were so expensive and i just could make myself go buy one even at end of season sales these were never marked down. i am going through my ball blue blue tonight and picking out stuff to can wish me luck.

I am thrilled to find this many people asking questions about canning and preserving. WOW! I have been active in canning since I was a little girl with my mom. I, myself, have canned since the birth of my first child (1973) and found that there were so many preservatives in foods we bought. It really does not come out to be cheaper, but it is healthier and more rewarding. You just cannot experience" the SATISFACTION and PRIDE that you get after finishing a'turn' of canned food that you did all by yourself for YOUR FAMILY AND LOVED ONES" from a supermarket shopping trip. It is hard, somewhat dangerous with the pressure canners, but it is worth every moment when you open just one jar knowing what went into and is coming out of it! I guess in the long run, I save a lot more than just money or time or anthing really tangible. I save my LOVE in each jar! I have honestly never tasted anything bad that was home canned, just different and nutritious. :p
