Pressure Canners to be Tested

Posted: Saturday, May 29th, 2010 at 6:22 am

The Washington County Extension is offering testing of dial gauge pressure canners.  Canner lids will be tested from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. on June 9th and June 23rd.  Lids may be dropped off at the Extension Office prior to those dates and picked up after testing.  There will be no charge for canners tested.  You will be contacted when your lid is ready to pick up.  Bring the canner lid only; the entire canner is not needed.  The pressure gauge and all vents and openings in the lid will be checked for proper functioning.  For additional information contact the Extension Office.
