I have an All American canner, I love it. It is a fantastic precision machined piece of kitchen equipment and I use it often. You don't have to PM me, just start a thread and tag me. That way, you will get lots of advice from different people, besides just me. There are lots of experienced people here and we will help you, walk you through the process and answer any questions that you have.One of these days, I’d like to pm you, I’d like to start canning again, my hubby doesn’t because if the work involved, I’m wondering if it’s gotten any easier?
@Mini Horses I can double stack pints in my All American, but I can't stack quarts. It holds 7 quarts, when canning meat, the time is 90 minutes, not counting the time to heat up, get up to 10 pounds of pressure, then the time to cool down before opening it. So each batch takes awhile.
Thank you. I pretty much wound up being self-taught, being left handed - when I was learning, all the instructions seemed to be written for the right hand. I had to read them, and then mentally turn it around. Even the illustrations only helped so much, because left-handed stitches are more or less mirror images of their right-handed counterparts. Knitting is something I still struggle with. For some reason, I have tension problems that I can't seem to rectify, and my knit and purl stitches are almost always different sizes.Your ornaments are so lovely. You are so talented! I have never learned how to knit or crochet, always wanted to, but just never learned it. You should definitely sell your ornaments, they are adorable.
