Quick Answers



When I can two layers of jars of vegetables in my pressure canner, like peas and carrots, what time should I use?

It is not recommended that two layers of different vegetables be canned together unless the processing time is the same. If this is done, however, use the longest processing time of the two products. One vegetable may be overcooked as a result. However, better safe than sorry.
