Dear Traditional Cook,
It’s fun and satisfying to serve delicious, healthy food to your family, but not everyone wants to spend all day in the kitchen.
And as much as I love Traditional Cooking, I have to admit that some of the techniques are time-consuming. So I thought:
What if you could keep all the nutritional value of Traditional Cooking methods, and also get the quick and delicious flavor of pressure-cooked foods?
I looked around. And I couldn’t find anyone teaching home cooks how to adapt Traditional Cooking techniques for the pressure cooker. So I started experimenting in my own kitchen.
The other day I guided my son, Mikah, through making a complete meal in the pressure cooker.
When we sat down to the table, I proudly told everyone he’d made dinner.
His response? “No, I didn’t. The pressure cooker did it!”
So let me ask you something. Would you like to have the same experience?
When you use a pressure cooker for Traditional Cooking, it goes something like this:
An Hour's Worth Of Cooking In Only 11 Minutes
Imagine you soak your grains Traditional Cooking style. (That cuts the cooking time in half, while boosting the grain’s nutritional value.)
And then you toss your soaked grains into an Instant Pot, press a button, and walk away. What just happened?
You’ve cut the cooking time in half again… while keeping the nutrients that get lost, when you cook grains in a regular pot.
So now what you have is:
Tender, plump, healthy grains in a fraction of the time.
That means you can go from 1 hour of cooking time to 11 minutes of cooking time… and that’s just for the rice!
And when you add a main dish, a couple side dishes, and maybe a dessert, now you’re talking about some serious time savings… with no downsides.
Now before I tell you more, I’d like to introduce myself:
Hi, My name is Wardee Harmon.
I’m the author of the Complete Idiot’s Guide to Fermenting Foods.
I’m also the lead teacher for Traditional Cooking School. It’s an online cooking school I created to honor my grandmother’s traditional cooking methods and preserve them so that future generations can enjoy the health benefits, flavors and fun of traditionally prepared foods.
But is Pressure Cooking Healthy?
When I first considered adding pressure cooking to my Traditional Cooking “bag of tricks”, I had some doubts.
After all, pressure cooking is a high-heat, high-pressure cooking technique. So it almost seemed like the exact opposite of a Traditional Cooking method.
But the more I explored, the more it started to make sense.
Here’s what I learned: Pressure cooking...
- Is mostly hands-free,
- Can be safely used with frozen foods,
- Tenderizes meat (especially if it’s pastured),
- Is efficient with your time and energy resources,
- Boosts flavors, so a pinch of spice goes a long way,
- Gives a fantastic texture to smooth, creamy custards and desserts,
- Is perfect for big-batch and large-family cooking, and
- Is easy and fun…
… and most importantly, when you do it the way I teach you, it’s also healthy.
Roasts, Stews, Veggies…
Plus, Breads, Desserts, and More
If this sounds interesting to you, then you are in for an amazing ride. From mac-n-cheese to chicken soup, to the most tender and delicious roast you’ll ever eat... pressure cooking delivers. How?
Pressure cooking isn’t just a way to make mouth-watering, tender, amazing roasts and stews. Oh, no.
There are people out there right now making absolutely gorgeous custards, breads, and cheesecakes in their pressure cookers.
So if you’ve ever wished your traditionally cooked meals looked pretty enough to post on Pinterest or Instagram, then you’re in for a treat.
Pressure cooking gives you meals that are as beautiful as they are healthy.
Now, I have to warn you:
Pressure cooking isn’t for everyone.
So here are a couple of things I want you to consider.
- Even though pressure cookers are easy to use, I would never advocate treating it like a crockpot. Pressure cooking is NOT set-it-and-forget it.
- And, it’s NOT an appliance that you can leave unattended. You should always be nearby, but you don’t need to be hands-on.
Now that I’ve got the safety warning out of the way, I have to ask you:
Have you ever said these words?
“Oh, no, I forgot to thaw the meat for tonight’s dinner!”
Without pressure cooking, your choices would be:
- Dinner will be several hours late, or
- You might end up serving convenience foods… or something else you don’t feel good about.
But with pressure cooking, you can start with frozen meat, and have dinner on the table in a surprisingly short period of time.
Here’s my point: Pressure cooking makes a lot of sense if you’re interested in cooking traditional foods, much faster, without losing flavor or nutrition.
"But What If It Explodes All Over My Ceiling?!"
Let’s face it, no other cooking appliance has such a bad reputation.
You mention pressure cooking to someone and they’ll say, “Me? Use a pressure cooker? No way. Knowing my luck, it’ll probably explode all over my ceiling!”
So when I taught Pressure Cooking as a live class, I built the class specifically to reduce anxiety and overwhelm. We focused on safety, building confidence, and making delicious food.
And I was delighted by the great results everyone got.
Then I took the lessons from the live class and turned them into two on-demand eBooks: Pressure Cooking I & II.
Pressure Cooking I is 83 pages long. It contains 11 lessons that build on one another, so you can learn pressure cooking at your own pace. And it comes with 33 streaming videos.
Pressure Cooking II is 99 pages long. And it contains 9 lessons that build on what you learned in Pressure Cooking I. It comes with 24 streaming videos.
The biggest difference between the two eBooks is that Pressure Cooking I focuses on mastering the techniques and making simple recipes, while Pressure Cooking II gives you even more fast, healthy, tender, and amazing pressure-cooking recipes.
All Cooking Levels Are Welcome
Both eBooks are for all cooking levels. If you’re new to traditional cooking, you’ll be able to make delicious, healthy meals, quickly.
And if you’re an experienced cook, you’ll be amazed at how fun and easy it is to add pressure cooking to your skills… especially when we get to the section on adapting recipes.
Both eBooks are great on their own, but they make the most sense as a set, so that’s why I’m offering them together… at a deeply discounted price.
I’ll tell you more about that in a minute, but first, let’s take a peek at what you’ll get.
In Pressure Cooking I, you will learn:
In Pressure Cooking II, you will learn:
Nutritious, Delicious, Traditional Cooking… Faster
If you want to get dinner on the table faster, while also increasing its flavor, texture, and nutritional value*, then pressure cooking is for you.
(*Keep in mind, this doesn’t apply to foods that you eat raw or fermented. However, if you’re going to cook something anyway, pressure cooking is the way to go. It’s faster, and it boosts nutrition. That’s a powerful combo.)
The nice thing about Pressure Cooking I & II is that they’re 100% in alignment with Traditional Cooking principles. As far as I know, there’s no one else out there sharing information like this.
Here’s a sneak peak at some of the recipes you’ll discover, in Pressure Cooking I:
The best I've ever made!
"Just made hummus from garbanzo beans cooked in the pressure cooker. It's so yummy. The best I've ever made." ~Marilyn P.

You can watch the 10 videos demonstrations over and over again, and everything is documented in the printable tutorials so you can refer to the recipes and information long into the future.

No. It’s never too late to start feeling better. Why? Parents often sacrifice their own needs. And as the years go by, their health gradually declines. I want parents of any age to be able to feel better, starting today... as well as their children to get started on the right foot!
Is religion a huge theme in this eBook?
We focus on the techniques of preparing real foods using traditional methods that preserve or enhance the nutritional value of the original ingredients.
There is a heavy emphasis on answering the “how” questions. However, there is always a reason for “why” we do things, and it is this “why” that is often more important than the “how.”
Our philosophy: At Traditional Cooking School by GNOWFGLINS, we believe that God is our creator and the source of all things good. God is the “why” for all that we do, including the way we cultivate, harvest, prepare and eat foods. That’s why we share our love for God and explain how we can see God’s design in our food.
This resonates with most of our students, though some participate solely for the techniques. We are happy to help you either way.
