I'm now in the ' whatever happens, happens ' mode. Jars in, pressure maintained above 11 lbs, timer set, 7 minutes to go. So far the process has been straight forward and easy. Im just hoping I dont wind up with 7 jars oof mashed potatoes. If all works out, ill probably do another batch next weekend, with the remaining varieties of potatoes I have before they go to sprout. I will open up one of this weeks jars just to test consistency and all that before I do the others.
