Re: New to canning - Do I really need a pressure cooker?

Pressure canners are needed for some types of fruits/veggies, but not tomatoes (though you can use it). A great guide that I use is www.pickyourown.org.

I too am scared by pressure cookers, but they're a lot safer than they used to be. My dh pressure cooks meals, and I make him do the canning portion (I prep, chop, fill jars, etc). I know it's not hard, but I'm a little intimidated.
