Pressure variances

Our local cooperative extension service recommended canning salmon at 11 lbs. for 100 minutes (1/2 pint jars). The pressure cooker is determined to stay at 15 pounds. Does that matter?


As long as you don't use less pressure than is recommended you should be fine.

If you were to be using a weighted gauge canner then you would need to use the 15 pound weight. So I would think using that pressure on your dial gauge pressure canner should be ok.
