    I found this to be very easy and pretty effortless. I have never cooked with the pressure cooker, just used it for canning. We added 15lbs of pressure and cooked it for 40 minutes. I added half of a green apple that I needed to use and for the seasonings I used sage, marjoram, thyme salt and pepper. The kids loved it  -  10 Feb 2013
