After you have programmed the time to pressure can, the canner will tell you to insert jars to warm up.
If you look closely, it will say warm jars. It will look like this for the different steps.
The canner will tell you to fill the jars with what you are processing. Heat up the water without the regulator. The canner then will tell you to put on the regulator. Every step you will ok the step with clicking on the x. After 10 minutes of letting out steam, the canner will have you put on the regulator, then that is it. It will process for the time you set, it will tell you it is done, then the canner will cool down which could take up to 2 hours. After it has cooled down, the canner will say take out the jars.
Here is the completed tomato soup.
Here we go with cloudy skies, and a bit feeling damp out. Not as nice as it was when the sun was out this week. But it is getting to the end of October. How are you doing with your garden clean up chores. I have 8 big pots to clean up and move. Then I will work on getting the plastic containers out of the east greenhouse. Someone is asking for his space back.
I finished up 9 pints of tomato soup. The pictures you see are the steps I used with the electric pressure canner. I just love that piece of equipment. I am making another batch today. Soup is really good. Tomorrow I will make vegetable soup.
Hope you can see what the steps are with the electric pressure canner. I start it all at the beginning for the time to process with the pressure and heat. Jars warm up, fill the jars, heat for 10 minutes, and then the pressure starts. It quits after the time you program in to pressure can, and then cool downs. It will tell you when you can take the jars out. Easy and just let it do it work. All stay safe and enjoy this fall like weather we are having.
