Pressure Canning on Wood Stove?

Dear Editor,

On off the grid with no electric power at all – solar or other wise – is it still possible to use the pressure cooker – say on top of the wood stove??

 BC Canada

 

Dear BC,

You’ll hear a lot of “experts” tell you that it is impossible to can on a wood stove because maintaining a constant pressure is impossible. I can tell you right now that maintaining a constant pressure on one of those old push-button electric stove tops was near about impossible – much more so than a wood stove would be!

The art is in getting familiar with your stove, learning how to cook with wood, and increasing that experience to include canners. Many women canned on wood stoves (my mother-in-law’s mother, for instance), so I know that it can be done.

To that end, I went searching the Internet for useful information about using a wood stove for canning and ran across this wonderful blog on how to cook on a wood burning stove… period! I’ve bookmarked it for myself and suggest you do to. There is a lot of useful information here! The web address for the post on pressure canning is https://woodcookstovecooking.blogspot.com/2011/07/pressure-canning-on-wood-cookstove.html.

Thanks!

Regarding Your Article on the Top Ten Questions About Solar …

Dear Editor,

Good coverage and discussion with your “Top 10 Questions,” but you totally overlook at least two very important factors:

  1. 1.       Obtaining government subsidies for solar panel installations plays into the government’s wealth redistribution program, i.e. the government uses some of MY tax dollars to help YOU to install a solar array.
  2. 2.       Accepting any form of subsidy does the exact opposite of taking you “Off The Grid.” Instead, you are now in the position of being a registered energy producer, and the product of your little power plant can be totally “nationalized” by the government to re-distribute, according to their own priorities, at any time they see fit.

Sincerely,

B.L.

 

Dear B.L.,

You make very valid points. What’s the old saying (or several of them as I think about it…)—if you lay down with dogs, you’ll get up with fleas. Or, nothing is free…everyone pays the piper eventually. Or, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Or… well, you get the idea.

You’re absolutely right. People will have to weigh the risks against the gains and see if they’re willing to take the chance that Uncle Sam won’t one day come to collect his due. It’s much the same way our churches have been stifled in free speech. As long as they accept that special status from the government, then they will never be free from the stranglehold of government control and coercion. It’s definitely something to think about in every transaction you engage in, not just tax breaks and subsidies.

Thanks!

  1. I live in Alaska, so it would seem to me that, with a low of three hours of sunlight in the Winter (depending on where one lives in the state), a solar generator, or solar anything would not do much good for folks up here. And that is when we would need such a device the most. Is there an alternative to solar for us farther-north-residents?

    • 1st off, know that I have limited solar panel, enough to charge battery & power minimal ‘stuff’. Even here in Texas, I would not bet on a single solution but would add Wind Chargers for night and cloudy days. Depending on your situation, you might also investigate water power generator that can be anchored in a fast moving stream, etc.

  2. Hi – Regarding Multi-vitamins and alleged research showing they will kill you… The ruling class has been trying to ban vitamins for a long time. Therapeutic doses of vitamins are very hard to obtain now in Europe. They want to ban them for people in the US as well. This kind of research smacks of artifice – an attempt to convince us to stop taking them so they don’t have to ban them outright. We should always ask who funded this research, who benefits from it – and, yes, they do have something to gain by reducing the health of the population. I can’t believe this “research” keeps popping up in my inbox today. Oy! With regards, Patricia

  3. Are the Microgreens seeds in the kit that can be purchased from you organic? I am looking forward to your response and want to purchase if they are organic.

  4. In regards to beating up the IRS, check out the following link. The info is just another scam, this one from Angora financial. I’ve seen many and listened to many, no get rich of off the hook deals anywhere. Really filter and research or you might loose your followers.

  5. Canning on wood stove. Does not a weighted canner perform properly as long as it continues to vent excess pressure as steam? I would think it could be used over an open fire as long as enough heat is generated?
