Default Re: I'm scared - using pressure cooker for 1st time!

I am still so scared of pressure canning on the stove after 2 years of trying to work up my courage I gave up and asked dh for an electric pressure cooker for Christmas this year. I am getting it for chicken and ribs, but tell me more about this soup processing you speak of?

To cook beans from dry, I rinse the beans and put them in the cooker and then add water (1 cup dry beans = 3 cups water, sometimes I make a double batch) and a little salt. Put on the lid and wait for a steady stream of steam to come out of the top then put on my weight (does it have a real name?). As soon as it builds up pressure and begins to rock I turn the heat down (on my stove medium low maintains pressure) and set my timer for 45 minutes. Pull it off the stove and let it cool until it loses pressure (usually takes 15 minutes or so depending on the temp of the kitchen) Smaller beans take a little less time and larger beans take a little more time. I'll be honest....I am not as pleased when I cook them this way as I am when I allow them to soak or even quick soak them first. They seem to cook a little more unevenly with some beans a little softer and other more firm- I don't know why that is. To quick soak the beans, I start them the same but as soon as they come to a boil I turn off the stove and let them sit there for an hour. After they have sat, I just turn the heat back to high and cook the same as above for less time, around 20 min give or take.

I love making refried beans in the cooker, I make as above but add a few cloves of garlic and sometimes some chopped onion and then let it cook a few minutes longer to make the beans a little softer then mix it together using an immersion blender. With homemade tortillas- yum!

I'm SO glad to know I'm not the only one who's scared of it! My mom made delicious roasts in hers, so she gave me one about 10 years ago and I've never used it. Maybe you all will inspire me.

I have yet to lose my terror of the darn things....Its that sound that they make! It sends me running out of the kitchen, fast.
