These lids say to simmer.I have the jars in the oven on 200.Also have large pot of water boiling to ad to peas.Peas are washed.

Its 8lb.s of white area peas.How many quart jars should I get out of this?

Also the price was $20 for 8lbs shelled peas.Some more should come in tomorrow but don't think we can spend 40 on peas this month.
How long to pressure cook?

Thanks

10 pounds pressure for 30 minutes for quarts. You probably won't get more than 4 or 5 quarts. You do not need to simmer lids if you are using pressure canner.
Let me know how it comes out. :2thumb:

I thought the lids were simmered to soften the rubber on the bottom rim of the lid, so they would seal. :scratch: Though I guess that would happen while the canner is heating up to pressure?

Meerkat, it's normal for some of the water to boil out during canning. It sounds like you did it right.

(Hope the baby rabbits are all right!)

Sue I hope so too.Hubby put it back in with iother babies,don't know if that was a good idea though,it will likely die and I hope ants don't invade the nest.We have tried to save rabbits,bought feeders,and food but they always die.Squirrels usually live.
I think the peas will be alright.We cooked a quart of them and they are so good.If I had the 40 to speand on peas this month I'd buy some more.:wave:

Pressure canner instructions include the instruction of simmering the lids for 10 minutes to condition the lids/rubber.
