    I think it's a 23 quart canner, larger than mine, can do 7 quarts , but tons of pints and half pints. Here's link that offers a pdf on instruction manual and a video on using it.

    Does it have an overpressure plug - if so, just and added safety feature, but if not, not a problem. At my location, everything I can uses 11 psi pressure - mine has that area marked on the gauge, you could add a dot there with a sharpie marker - helps visually while canning.

    sunflour, have you ever peeked in on the canning thread? You might enjoy it. I subscribe but haven't done much canning (at least yet). There are some great sounding recipes and beautiful pictures of jewel-like jars of things members have done.

    Actually had never stumbled on that one, I did post once on another and guess my post was a thread stopper [​IMG]

    This one looks quite interesting, thanks for the link.

    Hmmmmm..... :p ;) Yes, come join the canning thread @sunflour! Tons more recipes there too! :) PEACHES!!!! I hate to brag lol.... But I just blasted through 3 25# boxes if fresh Colorado peaches... Canned 14 quarts, 18 pints, froze 5 quarts for pies and cobblers, and made 7 pints of peach butter and 14 half pints of peach jam...... I LOVE peaches :D Pie: Crust. 1 cup sugar and enough fresh peaches, peeled and sliced...about 5. Dash of cinnamon 2 eggs. 2-3 tbsp flour Mix eggs, sugar, flour, and peaches... Put in crust. Bake @350 for about an hour and a half. ... Less if below 5000'... Sorry lol, high altitude ;) The eggs make it a custard, I usually make 2 at a time or I won't get a piece. :( COBBLER Peaches... About 5-8, depending on if doubling it... Same as pie, I double it lol bake a half hour longer if you double it. 1 cup Bisquick, I cup milk, I cup sugar, and half a stick of butter....4 tbsp.. Dash of cinnamon Ok melt butter in pan. I usually just let it sit on the stove while its preheating... Mix Bisquick, sugar and milk. Pour over butter in pan. Don't mix ;) dab fresh peaches on top, 350 for an hour, hour and a half if doubling the recipe. Make extra, I promise you'll need it ;)

    The thread I gave you has been going on quite some time...since 2008 if I remember correctly. I don't think you're going to stop that one! [​IMG]
