Mom and Dad were in for a visit this weekend and I had an agenda that didn't involve parades. Mom had given me this pressure cooker/canner at Thanksgiving and I had yet to muster the courage to use it. Coincidentally, I also had some fresh pumpkins that had managed to survive the winter. So off we went...back in time when you preserved foods in bulk and stockpiled. My destiny as a food hoarder takes another step forward.
