I have a dear friend who is struggling with cancer. She's always had an amazing garden but will no longer be able to do something like that. One day she asked me if I'd like a few of her canning jars. Now, when the kids where little, I canned fruit and things like that. It was fun and the canned things were so much better than bought. So, my friend's son was visiting and during that time she called and asked if they could bring the jars over. Sure! When she arrived, they unloaded 30 cases of jars, with rings, canner. All the stuff. I'm determined to have a large garden this year and am wondering what kind of pressure cooker I should get. Could anyone share their experiences with me??? Thanks! Michele.
