Hello from the Hunter Valley, NSW

Postby vintagerose » Sat Nov 12, 2011 8:23 pm

Hi Everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum. I live on 1.6 acres and have started my vegetable garden, planted fruit trees and berries only this year. I am very interested in preserving and I am just about to purchase a pressure canner. I am thinking of getting the All American Pressure Canner after researching it. I hope this one will be ok as I wanted to be able to water bath preserve in it as well. The only thing that worries me is the pressure canning of low acid foods and the risk of botulism! I'm sure if I follow instructions I will be fine but it's still scary!

I will now have to start reading all the posts here and I'm sure I will learn lots!

Melissa :D

Hi Melissa,

Welcome to the forum, you'll find quite a bit here about canning and botulism. Something to think about but not get too afraid of.

I've got the presto canner so don't know about the one you're getting.

I lived in the Hunter many moons ago for a short time at Bulga, south of Singleton on the Putty Road. Hope you haven't got any problems with mines close by?

Look forward to getting to know you and hear your tales.
