The crock pot is good alternative and there is no pressure.

Cooking in or on the hearth (my fireplace) is a great way of getting the kids around the "stove". My grand kids love it and there are many great ways of getting them involved and well fed on real food.

Check out your local Freecycle if you have one or ask at church there are older ladies that no longer use them I bet. Did you check to see if you needed a new seal that goes around your lid? If it has cracks or looks dry replace it.

Good luck girl.

The ring looked good...... but it just would not lock right? It took 2 of us to get it open once it was locked.

I am looking on different Sites


How is things going with you?

If you are going to buy a new canner you might as well buy a real large one, that way you can process several cans at once, cutting down on the batches, the use of gas or electric and the time. When we did do the long form of canning we used a large canner.

The problem with a really large canner is lifting it when it's full of water!

It is hard, but we used to take the jars out and wait til the water cooled, then it wasn't so heavy

Jasmin, yes the huge canner does take up more than one burner, but we used to still can, using only the one burner. The canner just hung over the side a little and meant we couldn't use the other burner on that side until we finished.
