When all my fruit trees finally produce an abundance of fruit, I will have a way to save and store harvests. With my many Ball-mason jars and even my old vacola bottles, will have some use.
This AMERICAN cooker is 30 quart or 28.5 litre pressure canner will more than suffice. I also purchased a Secure Grip lid lifter: Premium Bottle tongs.
My intention is to preserve mainly excess fruit. We have a heavy duty gas cooker that we can use outside if we have abundance.
The next book I had purchased recently with the intention to preserve general foods. It is a Ball-mason book containing fruit, vegetables, meat, jams, relishes etc. recipes and methods.
I also have a homesteaders book on butchering all forms of meat and poultry etc from farms. As hubbie was a butcher once, he may come in handy. This is a practical book and not to everyone's taste.
I bought this canner with a little inheritance and hope to pass it down through the family along with all the fruit trees.
