Electric Pressure Cooking

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
I don't know about you, but my mom cooked with a very scary pressure cooker when I was little.  The little knob on top would shake and rattle and kind of scared us all.  Well, welcome to the 21st century because you will never be scared to use a pressure cooker again!  I attended an electric pressure cooker class at Honeyville Grain, taught by the fabulous store manager Lisa.  

You won't believe what the Nesco Electric Pressure Cooker can do!  It slow cooks, browns, steams, and even browns food before cooking it and THEN it keeps it warm until you are ready for dinner! It would be a great way to cook up your wheat berries to use as a cereal or in salads, and cooking beans will only take minutes not hours.  No more cooking overnight in the crockpot.
Lisa demonstrated how to make several dishes and they were delicious!!  We sampled Black Beans with Chorizo, Salmon with Balsamic Vinegar Sauce, Broccoli, Brown Rice, and Bread Pudding.  Keep in mind the class was an hour and she cooked all of these with 3 pressure cookers right in front of us.  

"You can cook virtually anything in a pressure-cooker-from meats & main dishes to rice and potatoes to vegetables of every description up to and including dessert.  You also preserve more nutrients by cooking under pressure than letting escape in air or water." -Lisa Barker, Honeyville Store Manager
I'm telling you, we have FUN in these classes!!

Head into Honeyville sometime and they will show you everything you need to know about this amazing pressure cooker.  They retail for about $93 and will allow you to toss the rice cooker and the crock pot!!

Don't forget about the August goals!!  See them all here!!
