Can I pressure cook the placenta or somehow steam it in the microwave with special steamer bags. Sounds like a joke but I'm serious.
I want to encapsulate my own placenta and have seen the directions online. I have a dehydrator, coffee grinder and gel caps. I don't have a steamer basket and don't want to spend the $40 for a pot and steamer basket that I will only use once
ETA: Is there a raw method and you skip steaming it? I was just re-reading instructions and they say you can just slice it and go straight to dehydrating. Any pros and cons to dehydrating while raw instead of steamed/cooked

You don't need to steam it. You can just slice it into chunks & dehydrate it. I actually think it has more nutrients that way.

Welcome- I suggested the FB group because there is talk there of pros/cons of both encapsulation methods and one woman just did a study and here is what was said so far:
I know this thread is old, but I just wanted to point out (in case it interests anyone), that you can steam stuff with a metal colander instead of a basket. You can even prop it up in the pot with a small steel something (prep bowl? small lid?), if you need to. I do this all the time with veggies. :)
