So, remember to choose recipes that have fewer ingredients to prepare, fewer steps to process, and shorter cook time. Recipes that are mainly whole or mostly whole fruit or veggies with hot brine (vinegar, salt, water) or syrup (sugar, water) on top are the fastest of all. Also, remember that the processing time IS THE SAME AS WITH A WATER BATH PROCESS; the time savings with a steam canner is ALL in the prep time saved. No more waiting around for a huge pot of water to boil!
I’m just so thrilled with my steam canner and I’ve been working on a set of recipes that will help you maximize the steam canner too! You can get yours from Amazon through this photo that is affiliate linked!
