pressure canning

Asked October 10, 2015, 7:32 PM EDT

I was told that CSU extension will check a pressure canner to be sure it is working properly. Is that so and if so, where should I take it?

I can check your pressure canner gauge for accuracy at the Larimer County Extension Office, 1525 Blue Spruce Drive, Fort Collins, CO.

Please call to make an appointment at 498-6008. There is a $10 fee for this service.

Please let me know if you are not in Larimer County and I can refer you to a closer location.

Thank you. I do want to get this pressure canner checked, but I cannot do so this week. Do you have times for next week that it would work?

Next week we can test the gauge:

Tuesday, 10/20, 8:00 am - 12:00 noon
Wednesday, 10/21, 1:00 - 5:00 pm
Thursday, 10/22, 8:00 am - 12:00 noon

Or - you could drop off Monday - Friday, 7:30 am - 4:30 pm. We will test and call when it is ready for pick up.

Call: 498-6008 to schedule.
