When pressure cookers are outlawed, only outlaws will jar strawberry jam


Oh, for the love of jelly. Planning on canning? Williams-Sonoma wants you to do it outside of Massachusetts.

Williams-Sonoma, the specialty retailer of home furnishings and gourmet cookware with over 250 stores in the United States, has pulled pressure cookers from their shelves following the Boston Marathon bombing.

“It’s a temporary thing out of respect,” said Kent, who is the Store Manager of the Williams-Sonoma at the Natick Mall. He referred Patch to corporate for further questions. Williams-Sonomaalso has a local branch at Legacy Place in Dedham.

Pressure cookers will still be available on the Williams-Sonoma website.

Pressure cookers are now un-PC in Massachusetts, “banned in Boston.” We’ll have cultural stocks and pillories for those making preserves.

Who would have thought jarring prunes would become a counter-cultural activity?

But please, do everything you can to avoid mentioning that the bombers were Islamic extremists.
