Saving aluminum canner?
Wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the cooking forum...
I have an aluminum pressure canner that belonged to my grandmother. After a recent bout of canning applesauce, I noticed it has developed a black sort of tarnish/patina inside on the bottom and lower two inches of the sides (where the water is when canning). It's also pitted on the bottom and is reacting if I let it soak.
Is there any way to save it? I'd rather not have to invest in a new canner right now!
