Meals in Minutes
November 20, 2019
Pressure cooking has been around for a few hundred years, but it seems to be quite the craze these days. With advanced technology and our busy schedules, electric pressure cooking has caught on to be a routine method of cooking. Most of the electric pressure cookers on the market today may be used several different ways or considered multi-cookers – pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer and even a yogurt maker. Although, this method of cooking may be daunting to some who have heard of terrifying stories of pressure cooker disasters. Modern electric pressure cookers have been improved to be a much safer and easy-to-use appliance for individuals and their families. There will be a 2-Part Instant Pot & Winter Readiness Class on Thursday, December 5th (6-7pm) & Wednesday, 11th (6-8pm) at the new Roundup Elementary School. This 2-Part class will cover components of an electric pressure cooker, basic cooking functions, differences in methods of releasing steam, and adapting recipes to use in the appliance. In addition, there will be several guidelines and tips to make future use even easier. The first portion will be covering the basics of how to use an electric pressure cooker. The second portion will have an agriculture update and how to prepare for the coming winter months with pets, livestock, yard, & garden topics. Not to mention, preparing dinner in a few electric pressure cookers! There is a $10 cost to cover the expense of food & pre-registration and payment are due to the Extension Office by Friday, November 29th. You do not need to own an electric pressure cooker to attend the class. If you have your own, feel free to bring it with you to become more familiar with your appliance. Please call/stop by the Extension Office (406)323-2704 to pre-register or ask any additional questions.
