Stacking Pints in Canner
Posted 04 July 2008 - 02:07 PM
"One day, we’re going to stand before the gates of Heaven. Some of us want to be able to walk up there in a white robe and we want to sing Abba Father and Amazing Grace and we want to say to the Lord, “I worshiped You.” But I want you to think about this: Heres the way I want to enter the gates of Heaven. I want to come skidding in there on all fours. I want to be slipping and sliding and I want to hit the gates of heaven with a bang. And when I stand up and I stand before Christ, I want there to be blood on my knees and my elbows. I want to be covered with mud. And I want to be standing there with a ragged breast plate of righteousness. And a spear in my hand. And I want to say, “Look at me, Jesus. I’ve been in the battle. I’ve been fighting for you.” Ladies and gentlemen, put your armor on and get into battle. God bless you." ~ General William G. Boykin, U.S. Army (ret.)

Dee, mine only came with one rack. But I could get two rows of half pints or those smaller flat jelly jars in there. Back when I bought my canner in the 70's I think there were only quart and pint size jars.
You can't always get what you want, babe
But if you try sometimes, you just might find
You get what you need.

You can stack them without a rack, but you must stagger the jars, not one on top of the other.

Yes, but be aware it does take a little longer to pressurize and depressurize. Considering that you are cutting out another load, it definitely saves time.

Shrimp don't process as long as the fish, so you don't have to add extra water with it. Just the standard 2-3 inches of water. You also need to acidify the shrimp first with lemon juice.
You will need to check the guidelines for canning shrimp.
