Welcome to the party, Mr. Ruhlman. Here at Chowbacca! Western Addition Division we read the pressure cooking memo a few years ago and have been reaping the tasty benefits ever since. With the help of our Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker my wife has kept our pantry full of delicious preserves and canned vegetables as well as BPA free canned tuna. She's also made some great meals and quick beans in it.* Frankly, we're surprised that pressure cooking and canning haven't been hip all along.
