    Default Anyone doing any canning?


    I did pickles last night. I see my beets are ready and I want to do
    those.

    But here is my real problem. Purchased a new canner two years ago. It
    is one that has no rubber seal, but is metal on metal. I can't find the
    book that came with it. Does anyone know where I can get a cheep book
    for one of these?

    Do a Google search for the canner manual using the manufacturer name and
    model number. Should do it for you. If not, drop an email to the maker
    and ask for a new manual.

    You would do better asking this sort of question on rec.food.preserving.

    When I dropped a note to the manufacturer - they told me I would have
    to pony up for a new one. Not happy with them.

    Holy cow! Most manufacturers have their manuals online. The only
    good way to keep track of them is to store them in the unit and very
    few people do that.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    And if you find the booklet, STORE IT INSIDE THE CANNER.

    I presume it's an All American canner?
    If so, try http://tinyurl.com/n8u9u3

    A new what? You'd have to pay for a new manual? Because you lost the
    one they gave you with the pot you think they should give you one for
    free? Huh. A charge seems reasonable to me. I can only hope it was a
    reasonable charge.

    She posts through one of those gawd-awful Usenet gateways known as
    travel.com. A site that hides the fact that they are plagiarizing
    Usenet posts as their own internal forums, just to gain click
    revenue.

    I'm sure she has no idea what Usenet or rec.food.preserving is.

    colds that prevent you from tasting anything.

    I find the manual to my Kitchenaid mixer is always getting in the
    way of the batter and whisk.

    Better yet, keep a file with *all* your manuals.

    I will have to do that. They put out a whole cookbook with the manual -
    so it was $7.99 plus another $5.05 in shipping. Not happy about it. I
    won't be buying or recommending this company to anyone.
