is there anyway it would be possible to record the class and post the video? I’m in PA however I would love to see them. Here preparedness is running to the store for milk and bread before a snow storm. When I say before I mean after it starts snowing..
I was going to ask the same thing. I was just made preparedness coordinator and I need to help my ward get prepared. So…any help I can get would be wonderful. I love couponing, but can’t get coupons. The Sunday paper is only sold on Sunday here!! I can’t afford some of the coupon sites, we only have one or two stores here, so food isn’t cheap.
I just attended the pressure cooker class this evening and I have to say how DELICIOUS the food was-the risotto alone justifies, no necessitates the purchase of a pressure cooker-and how DELIGHTFUL Kellene herself was! I truly felt her passion for learning and knowledge and her sincere desire to share it with all who will listen. I am a better person for having been there (and I now know that a fantastic, inexpensive and FAST risotto is within my reach)! My life was truly improved. Run, do not walk, to one of her classes ASAP. Thanks again, Kellene!
I know you’re super busy, but if you have a moment, I was wondering if you had an opinion–I was researching Kuhn Ricon and they have a new “Top Model” version that is supposed to be an even better lid than the one you showed us tonight. Apparently, you can turn the knob and let go and it will continue to release all of the steam/pressure for you instead of holding the button thingy down the whole time. For the 7 quart variety, it would be about $40 more ($229 vs. $189). Do you think it is worth it? Thanks!
Hmm…I do know that when I read your comment, I did indeed covet the new model. But I’m not sure $40 is worth “not having to press the button.” I’m sure there are other features though. I’ll have to look into it.
Thank you so much for your input on my preparedness post. I really appreciated it. I am doing a post for next week and linking to you. I am also subscribing to your blog and putting your blog under the Food Storage/Preparedness section on my left sidebar. I’m glad I ‘met’ you.
Kellene, I have an All American canner I purchased off ebay a few years back. I changed the pressure gauge and also the petcock for a weight and it works great. Have canned tons of meats, vegs and sauces etc. But I have never used it as a cooker. Can I use it as just a cooker? I would let it cool down naturally as I understand it could be harmful for the older models (it is a 7 quart one by the by). I hate to have to purchase another appliance if I could use this one. Thanks
would love to be able to attend your class. Am a jealous gal.
If it’s only 1 7 quart then yes, I would use it as a cooker. In fact the one I have for canning is actually labeled as a “cooker”. I just frown upon using the big canners as a cooker, cause that’s an awful lot of energy and fuel for a meal.
