What are you canning now? - Page 371

post #3701 of 11077

I love my Presto canner too. In fact, I bought a Presto pressure cooker with Christmas money just to stay loyal to that brand. I use the canner a lot more though.

I lost my whole flock due to poor biosecurity. Read about it here: Infectious Laryngotracheitis, and learn from my mistakes so it doesn't happen to you.

All American is considered the Cadillac of pressure canners, built like a tank and is American made, that is why I purchased it. I believe the Presto can be used on a flat surface stove and it is cheaper. I love my All American and would purchase it again.

$4 PER JAR?!  $48 per dozen?!  th

How much do artisan/homecanned goods go for at market? 

They seem to go in the high 50 to low 60 cents a piece in this area.  High enough, if you ask me.

Depends on the market.  Most country people around here I know reuse commercial jars because they simply cannot afford to use canning jars.  The fancier places that can get away with $10 chutneys and things are in the city and even sometimes they use cutesy (and funnily, cheaper) artisan jars.  Those are only $2.  roll

I'll show you:

Edit:  LMAO suggested retail $8.

(and good luck getting them used, too - doesn't happen here because they cost, well... that)

Interesting.  I'm going to have to do some digging as to how that compares cost-of-living wise.
