Pressure canner testing every week

Canning season is upon us and you know what that means. Itís time to get your pressure canner gauge tested for accuracy. If you own a dial pressure canner, it is recommended that it be tested every year for accuracy. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, inaccurate dial gauges on canners can lead to under-processing or over-processing of food, resulting in unsafe home canned food. Food that is not properly processed may cause food borne illness.
Free canner testing is available at the Rowan Country Agriculture Center. Just bring your pressure canner lid with gauge for testing while you wait. Also bring your rubber gaskets and safety valves so that they can be inspected to make sure they are in good operating condition. Testing will begin Tuesday and continue every Tuesday throughout June and July (June 7 ń July 26). Hours are 10 a.m. to noon.
The center is located at 2727 Old Concord Road. For more information, call 704- 216-8970. You may call ahead and make an appointment or just stop by during the hours mentioned.
