quick cooling a pressure cookeri have been using my new pressure cooker for a variety of things lately
and have used the quick cooling method described by phatch. i put
the fagor (stainless steel!!!) under the cold water faucet while twisting the
steam escape vent and i can feel the pressure drop dramatically.
BE WARNED!! THE FOOD WILL STILL BE STEAMING HOT!! i do the quick
cool thingy with stew and use a stick mixer to grind down the mirepoix
before adding fresh veggies, lidding up, and then pressure cooking for
twenty extra minutes.
