Was looking at the recipe for the red hop apple wedges. It's apple season around here--just picked up a half bushel of no. 2 Granny Smith's last weekend--$5.65--a real bargain. I don't have a water bath canner but have one six quart and one 22 quart pressure cookers. How would a person adapt? Just leave the seal off and follow the recipe? Or could I maybe freeze the cooked apples?
Best,
Tom

Never mind. Just found and read the primer on canning. But thanks anyway.
Best,
Tom

FWIW, Tom, unlike a pressure canner, which is a precisely built piece of equipment, a boiling water kettle is, literally, any pot big enough to hold and cover the jars.

My go-to canning kettle actually is the pot portion of a pressure canner that no longer worked. That's when I'm doing full canner loads. But for smaller quantities, any of my various stock pots does the job just fine.
But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thanket
