Free Pressure Canner Testing
Individuals who participate in home canning should check the accuracy of their dial type gauges and other lid parts as part of their annual routine.
To have the dial gauge on your pressure canner tested FREE OF CHARGE, bring the lid to the Extension office, Juab County Courthouse (northeast entrance), 160 North Main, Nephi, on Monday, August 26. Times are 8 am to 12 noon, and 1 to 5 pm. If you cannot make it that day, call for an appointment at 623-3450 to have it tested on another day for $1.00. Please allow 1 hour for testing.
The Extension office has a Victorio food strainer, Presto 16-quart pressure canner, and a 21-quart water bath canner (each fits 7 quart jars) available for home food preservation (a three day checkout).
