    nb I have an instant pot pressure cooker

    1. Angela, you can “boil” the longer-cooking veggies and “steam” the shorter-cooking veggies on top. It depends on the veggies, but that’s an easier strategy than adding veggies in the cooker each time.

      For a good chicken bone broth, follow my technique. It has you just cover the ingredients with water so that you can get a more concentrated flavor without having to reduce it afterward. ; )



  3. So glad I found this site. This has been very helpful. I owned 2 pressure cookers many years ago and used them often, but after moving to FL and having a glass cooktop, my cookers wouldn’t work because the bottoms weren’t flat. So glad to see a resurgence in interest in this type of cooking. However, these new cookers are a whole new breed of cat. Years ago you just ran your cooker under the faucet to bring down the pressure, no pre-set times, no high and low pressures. This is a whole new learning curve, so I will be visiting your site often, I’m sure.

  4. Neighbor sent me this site. Very informative. Would like to receive your newsletter. Can you add me to your list. Thank you.

    1. Welcome, Joyce. Will do! Say “hi” to your neighbor for me!!
