After all these comments n suggestions, I need to relate these stories to you. I was brought up in Cornell, Wi. Just a bit down/up the road was the Presto pressure cooker facility in Eau-Clair. During the war, (I was around 4ish) they converted to making brass155MM Howitzer shells. Everyone in the area had a reject in the living room as it held a “bean-bag ash tray” perfectly. My inherited Mom n dad’s pressure cooker of that era, ended up in Guadalajara, Mexico with a dear friend. He attempted to make “black beans” in the device while going into town for a few things. He returned to find a (what was a very nicely done Airstream trailer redecorated with a black bean spray/fog. The pressure cooker is now gone to the recycled aluminum site. My wife n I had replaced it with a rather new one, but I found a need to have a larger device. I found my self at a local farmers market in Sarasota, Fl. Just east of the I75 intersection of Fruitville Rd., I asked a nice young Hispanic lady, “What are you doing with those apples?” She responded “De bad apples, we give to horses”. I purchased 60 Lbs. of “bad apples” for $8.00. I extracted around of 22 Lbs. of good cleaned, apple product, I had purchased a new 25 Qt. cooker from the “All American” foundry”, for around 230 “Muskrat skins”. So much wonderful apple butter, everyone loved it. The point of this rambling is to send you to the site of http://www.missvickie.com. No no, Nannette, this is not a porn site, this the quintessential source of pressure cooking knowledge.
