This is my bread and butter pickle brine that will be going on jalapenos!
20 pints of jalapenos sliced, packed and topped with pickle crisp.
I know this isn't the best picture but i wanted to try to get one showing the steam coming out the vent hole.
Here is my opinion on the steam canner. It holds 6-8 cups of water and doesn't take long to heat up to ready to use. After i got it ready to use i took the top off and put in my 9 pints. When i put the lid on I started timing to see how long it took to start venting steam. I was surprised at the time of 3 minutes!
A standard water bath canner can hold upwards of 4 gallons of water and take 30 minutes to come back up to a boil after putting in your jars. The time savings is unbelievable! I am thinking i will invest in another one so I can do 18 pints at a time! Total time process for 9 pints of candied jalapenos was 13 minutes!
This steam canner was very light even when filled with water and very easy to use!
