I want to buy a pressure cooker to make bone broth and to cook other meals. I like the idea of canning with it too (maybe even can my bone broth...) but my immediate goal is broth and meals. I've seen some great pressure cooker... (more)

@Alex and @pone - I looked up the Kuhn and it appears to be a stove top one. Do you prefer that to automatic? Do you have to watch it a lot while it's' in use? I was originally leaning toward stove top thinking it was more control... (more)

I'm doing the best I can to grow/raise as much of my own food as possible. I have a great garden, a hubs who hunts, a cow and piggy in the freezer and more out back. We get fresh eggs from a neighbor as well as raw goats milk (my son LOVES... (more)

I'm actually doing all greens this year, a few cucumbers. I do delicate varieties that I can eat raw or steam and freeze. Many foods I can get with limited pesticides. For example, summer squash grows so fast, I'm not as worried about pesticides... (more)

I just scored a large quantity of very good quality, local, pastured bones (pork and beef), so I am about to embark upon a very large broth-making session---since I have limited room in my freezer, I am thinking about canning the broth (in glass... (more)

I can tomatoes (including salsa) because I think home-canned tomatoes taste better and I remove most of the risk of BPA contamination from store-bought canned tomatoes. With anything canned there will be nutrient loss, but I'd rather have canned... (more)
