    I've done a bit of canning in the past with hot packing acid foods and I've also done a bit of drying but I finally got my pressure canner and started that this week. Had a few thoughts I though I'd pass on to others who are green in it as well. First get a nice canner. Something not to crazy...

    I spent the better part of a whole day, sore lower back, plenty of sweat and great satisfaction several weeks ago moving a couple hundred jars of my finest canned item to my BOL, along with my 5 gal buckets, dry goods and canned veggies. Last night I realized that If it gets to cold this winter...

    My wife is interested in canning. I bought her a book to get started, but it only contains information on canning vegetables. Can anyone offer advice or information on canning (meat) beef or wild game. Squirrel, fish, deer, rabbit, frog, etc....any and all meat. Also what would be the shelf life...

    Thought I'd share this info about a pectin product that is available that will allow you to make your jams and jellies with far less sugar than usual; you can even use sugar substitutes or no sugar at all. It's called Pomona's Universal Pectin and you can get it at Canning Pantry. A 1 ounce...

    I am wanting to start canning for the first time in my life. I usually have a nice sized garden, and plenty of wild game that I would like to can. Does anyone have any books, or web sites that go into deep detail on how to do this safely?

    I'm pretty new to the forum so if I'm asking an old question forgive me. I see a lot of people buying MREs, Gardening, and stockpiling groceries, but I don't see much discussion about home storage. So, how are you storing the food you grow? Each way I know of has it's own pluses and minuses...

    I picked up a Foodsaver jar sealer that works on wide mouth canning jars. To test it out I filled a 1/2 gallon jar with rice. I sterilized the lid, put it on the jar and put the lid sealer over the lid. I hooked up the vacuum hose and sealed the jar. Absolutely easy to do. We also plan is...

    I have very little personal experience in canning much of anything. I have a few books but none of them mention certain kinds of meats I'd like to can up. Namely salt pork. I love a big pot of black eye peas but that is just plain boring with no salt pork or a ham hock in it. First. Can salt...
