It seems appropriate to be doing this blog while on a flight to Seattle, high above the clouds…Soon it seems that the only place we won’t be able to get internet access will be in the middle of the Sahara desert.
I’m always amazed at how few people who live at high altitudes have discovered the time-savings boon of using a pressure cooker. When cooking under pressure, food is normally done in 1/3 or as little as 1/4 the normal cooking time at sea level. At high altitudes, it will take longer for the cooker to come up to pressure, but according to my high-altitiude informants, timing under pressure remains the same.
Lentil soup in under half an hour? Fork-tender pot roast in about 1 hour?
Hope you’ll spread the word to your high-altitude friends.
