Make sure to check your canning equipment
Food preservation season is here. Now is the time to check your equipment.
Pressure canners are either a dial gauge or a weighted gauge. Weighted gauges do not require testing but should be kept clean and rust-free. Dial gauges should be tested every year for accuracy.
The Becker County Extension Office has a pump dial gauge-testing unit. This unit uses air rather than steam pressure to test pressure canner gauges.
