Bring on the canning!
I've been debating for some time whether or not to buy a pressure canner... especially since I have a glass stove top. However, since I was able to find (with the help of my friend C) a pot suitable for water bath canning on my stove, I thought I might be able to find something small enough. Well this canner is not small, although it is *smaller* than most at 16 quarts. However, it claims to be safe for flat stove tops. Because:
See the gap? This is so smart... there is a plate on the bottom. The plate is the size of the burner, so only it is in contact with the stove top, not the whole base of the canner. Now I can start planning my attack on a rather large stash of winter squash in my garage, which must be dealt with now that the weather is warming.
Hubby is working a double tonight. I watched an awesomely bad movie, 'Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus' while I worked on a new knitting project. Now it's time for a shower, some fat pants, and maybe some sleep...
