Do we still can tuna for 90 minutes at 10 lbs. pressure?

Glad you asked. The time for processing tuna is now 100 minutes at 10# for weighted gauge canners and 11# for dial gauge canners. You need to make adjustment in pressure if you live over 1000 ft. elevation for weighted gauge and 2000 ft. for dial gauge canners.
