I canned green beans yesterday using my brand new pressure canner. I was VERY cautious using this thing, since I have a vivid memory of my mom exploding a full pressure cooker of spaghetti sauce all over the kitchen when I was young. I mean it was all over the ceiling, walls and floor. I wonder if she tried to open it too soon before letting the pressure release?
So I have a healthy fear of them.
But, I have to say it went so well. Easy peasy. Sure hope they taste good. I'll be trying a jar of these soon to see if we like them.
