Pressure Canner Testing

Do you have a pressure canner that you have been using for years? What about one that you "inherited" from someone who is no longer canning? Maybe you have a brand new one right out of the box! If you haven't had your canner tested recently, or at all, we encourage you to do so to ensure that your canner lid and guage are in good working order and are accurate to keep you safe and help you have a successful experience when canning. You can make an appointment to have your pressure canner lid tested during the dates and times listed below.
