- Verified purchase
Purchased a new Presto 23 Quart pressure cooker, it is huge, holds 20 pint jars or 7 quart jars. As a hobby I've been making jams, preserves and pickles for some years. I went looking for quality canned meat meals and found many products that are common overseas can't be purchased in Australia, I was interested in canned meats. Like canned beef, pork, chicken and turkey. I soon realised that I'd have to make them myself and after research found the Americans had perfected home canning of meats and meals. It's the only safe way to preserve meats...for upto 12 months. I purchased 12 pint jars and went to YouTube to find hints and cooking methods. My first batch of 6 jars was Ham Hock and beans, my second batch of 6 jars was corned sivlerside. I was nervous at first double checking everything reading and rereading the instructions, but it worked perfectly. The second batch was a cakewalk. Woolworths had corned silverside at $8 Kg, and beef prices have rocketed due to the terrible drought, I put 3 Kg in the 6 jars. So that's what I'll do from now on when I see meat at a great price I'll can it for the future meals. 24 more pint jars on the way, what fun and saving money too.
