Canning Suprise

Today was the day...


After saving my pennies, I finally splurged and purchased a brand new American Pressure Canner this past Summer. 

Well, Summer came and went and this beauty sat in the box unused until today.  

After making a Turkey dinner and boiling the remains down, there was more than enough stock to can.

After canning was complete, I was shocked when I opened up the canner..... to find the brand new racks and inside had been discolored black...

I certainly wasn't expecting that and quickly headed to the internet to make sure I hadn't ruined my new canner after it's maiden voyage.

 It looks like it's pretty common and can be cleaned with Vinegar or Cream of Tartar.


This canner is a BEAST!

I really appreciate being able to double stack and ended up with 12 pints of Turkey stock.
