    Well, it's that time of the year again. One of the things that has always signified fall to me is the smell of apples. Living in central Pennsylvania, orchards are very prevalent. Most every year as a child, my family and I would go to a orchard, and pick our own apples. Usually we have some...

    Can eggs be "canned"? I guess the most extreme end of the question would be whole egg straight from the shell, and the middle of the road would be scambled, and the lower end would be as a binder in meatloaf. I ask because the meatloaf i have been canning i really am starting not to like, but i...

    How can I can/jar Jalepeno peppers sliced up like one would find in a grocery store? Planted Jalepeno peppers for the first time and would love to be able to can/jar them all sliced up with juice. Thanks in advance.

    Hello survival guys and gals, I am writing this post in regards to the actual value of the #10 can in comparison to canning at home. I write this in that I have seen 6 #10 cans of rice for sale for a little over $80, when canning seems much cheaper. Besides the long shelf life of the sealed...

    I have a 30+ day supply of food for our family of 6, plus animals. I own a dehydrator that I use primarily for camping/backpacking meals. Now I want to have a pantry like my Grandmothers. I've looked at the thread with the pantry pics, and that is my next NOW step. I have the room and resources...

    Just moved to a new house and there is a huge pear tree out back. The tree is completely filled with pears ready for picking. A very conservative estimate of the yield from the tree is least a half dozen 5 gallon pails. We have been eating pears non stop for a few weeks and haven't made a dent...

    I currently do all of my cooking including canning in my home on a gas stove. I want to learn how to cook and can outdoors in case I lose power. I keep hearing about the Rocket Stove, wood stoves, propane grills, etc. I have not ever cooked on any of these alternatives. Are these alternatives...

    I know there's some concern regarding BPA in cans and in canning lids. And I remember seeing these lids at one of our visits to the local "readiness" store. I haven't used them yet, so I cannot say one way or another how they perform. Tattler Reusable Canning Jar Lids They are reusable too!!

    I ordered this off ebay, it was new in the un open box for $25.00. The individual that was selling it said they wanted a larger unit, however I think 6 Qts will be great for cooking dried beans and various other things for me and my wife. I even got a cookbook for the pressure cooker throwed in...

    I would love to start canning, but hate the idea of tons of jars to move and store. I know you can buy tuna, cooked rice, beans, all in mylar bags. Can you do this at home with cooked food. It would work by cooking your item, putting it in a mylar bag then vacuum sealling it, and then into a...

    I'm old and senile and from the backwoods of Tennessee, so I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer. I know several preppers and every summer they show me the nicest shelves of beautifully canned green beans, corn, and all kinds of veggies. They got enough dried beans and rice to live forever...
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hi all this is my first thread. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to can their own food in pouches similar to what you see with tuna bags and MRE entries. This whole idea came about when I ran into this site. The official name for those bags are retort pouches. However, the cost of that...

    Spent $6.00 for a 10lb bag of chicken thys and legs. Took half of it and cooked it in the crockpot. Then made a brothy chicken soup with onions and carrots and canned up 7 pint jars. Will do another 7 pints tomorrow. This will go into storage and be used when needed. Had some chicken soup...

    I'm new to canning. Basically, I've put up some sauces - spaghetti, taco, etc. just to learn until I can get some fresh veggies this year. This past weekend I was given some jars... about 100 pint jars!! I'm trying to think of what to use them for. I'm familiar with canning as my parents and...

    So as i read here and other sites i understand that ANYthing with meat in it needs a pressure canner/cooker. is this correct? my dad and i made some home made sauce a few weeks ago and canned it in quart jars. we boiled it for about 40 minutes or so. is it safe to eat soon? will it just limit...

    I have been interested in canning for a while. Growing up I remember my mom and grandmother making pickles and jam. I want to be able to have a garden this year and can the stuff in it. I bought a Ball canning set and looking thru the book that came with it I am not sure what I can really can...
