All American Pressure Cooker/Canner

Here is a picture of my latest kitchen purchase. It is the All-American 21-1/2-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner! Isn't she a beauty? I bought it from Amazon...truly a great price! I am going to use this baby for the first time tomorrow morning. I am going to make Italian Wedding soup, and pressure can it to use later. I have some spinach I need to use up, some vegetable broth in the freezer, and some frozen mini meatballs that I can defrost. I'll take pictures and show you how nice the jars look afterwards. Making and canning soup is more nutritious and tastes better. I joined a canning group on yahoo. These people sure know their canning! I have the latest copy of Ball's Blue Book, so I'm ready to go. I get so much produce each week from Bountiful Baskets, that I want to use it all, and not waste any. Do you put up your own food? What are you doing these days to stock your pantry?
