  1. Not Ann_T but here’s the link. Be sure to look around on the blog, she’s got tons of good things on it.
  2. Sounds like my method. “Did it say that jalapeños were supposed to be part of it? I guess I missed that. Sorry!”
  3. Quite certainly “Laxative Mayonnaise” with the pectin, 2 teaspoons of mustard, not to mention the 1 quart of mineral oil! Just the thought of it has me twitchy about TP on hand. 🤣
  4. The first US site I happened upon $3.50 US Even the Canadian price is much more in line with what I expected.
  5. I’m not implying anything about your skills or assuming you haven’t already tried this. But, have you tried turning off power to the oven with the breaker/fuse for a few (5 or so) minutes? Often when “they” are restoring power there are several quick on/off cycles that mess with the electronic appliance’s boards, a clean “off, wait a few, minutes, on” cycle can reset them.
  6. My mom wasn’t a microbiologist or anywhere close to being one, but hot dogs were not to be eaten unless they were cooked, “pre-cooked” wasn’t relevant.
  7. Hurrah! Unfortunately it does make a bit of a difference in your final results.🤣
  8. Also, be sure to remove and clean the float valve (the little pin that pops up when it comes up to pressure). The one time I had a problem it was some invisible bit of schmutz in that part. I took the gasket out and cleaned it, took the float valve out, q-tipped the hole and the pin (nothing visible came out or off), and reassembled. Problem solved.
  9. Did it actually come up to pressure? I can’t imagine how they would be that uncooked if everything was working properly.
  10. Blessedly cool here in the desert too, topped out in the very low 80s F. Currently 67 and dropping. 🥳
  11. Lucky you. Our water has become high enough in lime/calcium that we have to put a slug of vinegar in the pan after boiling water. I buy white vinegar by the gallon.
  12. Fully stocked (front to back & stacked where possible) in Yucca Valley, and this is the store that gets a lot of the Joshua Tree National Park visitors on supply runs.
