Remember When? The ladies at the Fort Ostell Museum will not be found working over a hot pressure cooker in the museum kitchen, but in honour of canning season they have put together this neat little display of some of the utensils and gadgets used in the early years of food preservation. As well some various sized canning jars and sealers which were listed then as $1.27 a dozen, we also have a long wooden cabbage shredder, a glass lifter to place the jars full of goodies into the steaming pot, and a metal funnel to fill the jars without spilling.
