Pressure Cooking
by: Provident Living Today - Jennifer

Each food has a different amount of time required when pressure cooking.

Your altitude determines the pounds of pressure needed.

Refer to the following page for detailed instructions:


You can still use the 5#, 10#, and 15# shaker. Use the shaker that is just above the required pressure for your altitude. For example: In Paradise, Utah I need to use at least 13# of pressure, I would use the 15# shaker.
