  • Canning Stuff

    Been looking for a small canning machine. While I was searching around, I found these folks. Thought I would share this link.

    I've canned food for quite some time now and I guess mama has done it every since she could reach the stove.So on and so on for generations I expect. I have found some good (and bad) info on canning looking through various sites but the tried and true methods my family has used for generations has kept us alive thus far.We can EVERYTHING.Never under estimate the power of canned meat.Store leftovers for .........a long time.Something else I may add is that pressure cookers are over rated.We can EVERYTHING in a pot of boiling water.

      Since we are talking about canning I think this fits. Up here in New England around this time every year Wally world puts all of their canning and ice cream making supplies on a 50-70 % off sale because its out of season. I just bought 7 cases of ball jars, lids and other canning goodies and about 16 bags of ice cream rock salt because stocking up is never out of season. Also the Burpy veggie seeds were on sale to so I grabbed up a bunch of those to.

        Was just thinking. How long will pickling last compared to just regular canning. A lot of people down my way like to pickle their food.
        Just wondering.

          Pickeled food should have about the same shlf life as the rest of your goods.I really try not to can too much of one and not enough others if you know what I mean.Usually we can enough to last till the next harvest or somewhere close.Sharing a bit will also cut your losses.

            I had never heard of canning meat...till this year. One of my employees brought in some diced venison that he canned last year....damn that was good stuff!...and tender! Only seasoning was salt!

              Ok now i need a recipe for canning meat. We do corn,tomatoes,green beans and pickles every year. This year we will be branching out to include squash,peppers and some fruits so if you will give me a recipe we will try that too.

                Pick up a copy of Putting Food By It was mentioned in another thread here. It is excellent. Another decent resource is the Ball canning book that you can buy at WalMart. It's called Blue Book of Preserving. It is a great beginners resource, and it has some recipes for canning meat, as well as some directions for dehydrating and freezing. I think it was $7.

                  Canning meat is as smiple as aything else,fish included.You can get lots of recipes online or from books ect. I simply put the meat in the pot, cook it about half-way with your desired seasoning,place the hot food in a jar,leave a little head room,place in a boiling pot of water for 20 min. or so.Don't forget to put the seal&ring on it, I left that part out. You'll need about 2 inches of water over top of your jars.Take the jars out,set them on a towel across the counter or table and as they cool you should hear the seals pop.The reason for cooking the meat only half-way is because it finishes it's cooking in the jar. Same concept for veggies.

                    I use the method in the link below to can butter. Have some sitting here that is 13 months old now. Still looks perfect! Tastes great also!

                      I also can venison it is very good and very handy. I use a presure cooker leave the meat raw though 1HR @ 12#. For a little twist you can cure it with tender quick it will be like deviled ham.
