I finally successfully used my Nesco Smart Canner to pressure can!
If you’ll recall, I purchased an electric canner in August. It seemed be a good option for my canning needs, but I have struggled with it. After my last failure in October, I got some guidance from Nesco customer service, but didn’t muster up the gumption to try again. Until now.
This weekend, Winter unveiled her claws and we spent most of our time in the house, watching the snow/sleet/rain/snow fall, and freeze, hoping the electricity stayed on (we were fortunate). Even the chickens refused to venture from their coop.
I used some of the time to cook down a turkey carcass I had stored in the freezer last Spring. The meat was used to make a casserole and I canned the broth.
It may not seem like much, but it’s a hump I needed to get over. I am cautiously optimistic that I can continue using the Nesco for small batch canning.
