A abounding barometer comes in three burden settings: 5, 10 and 15 lbs. Afterwards the canner is actuality vented, the burden central is 14.69 psi and the temperature at 212° F, 100° C.

  • Adding a 5 lb abounding barometer increases burden to 14.69 5 = 19.69 lb of burden which corresponds to about 227° F, 108.5° C.
  • Adding a 10 lb abounding barometer increases burden to 14.69 10 = 24.69 lb of burden which corresponds to about 240° F, 116° C.
  • Adding a 15 lb abounding barometer increases burden to: 14.69 15 = 29.69 psi. This corresponds to 250° F, 121° C.

Recipes usually account processing times and pressures for altitudes of 0-1000 anxiety for punch blazon and abounding barometer burden canners. If you are canning at college altitudes, chase the USDA distance adjustments listed below.
