just realized I have a few quart jars left from last year, better get chowin' on those.


I've already resolved myself to use wide mouth pint's next go around for serving size too. 


My other half always seems to forget I have quart jars of meat sitting there handy on the shelf, I think she does it on purpose  :chuckle:
It's a mental thing, she grew up with a grocery store 2 minutes away, so they never stored meat...just went next door and got a package for dinner.

My wife is the same way. However tonight she tried it straight out of the jar and said it was really good. So maybe there is some hope for her... :chuckle:

Been eating vension my whole life and never tasted canned until Sunday.  Did raw pack pints with 1/2 tsp kosher salt and 1/4 tsp seasoning.  Tasted like stew.  The juice was very good.  Prolly "pull" the meat and let it soak up the juice, like I do with my canned salmon in preperation for eating. Don't know why WE never did this a long time ago.

Not mine, I pretty much have to hide the canned meat or she will eat it for a snack....   :chuckle: It is by far her favorite way to eat venison, even better to her than a backstrap.   :yike:

Throw a thick slice of onion in the bottom of the jar and add even more flavor to the juice.

That's a great idea. I'm going to try that out.

When canning Chili, Stews or other similar, multiple ingredient recipes are you still using a cold pack method.

I have always cooked the meal, let it cool, pack it and then can it.

Can you mix all of the ingredients in their raw form, cold pack it and let the 1st and only cooking occur inside the jar?

Does it change the flavor because all of the ingredients didn't have an opportunity to "marry together" in a big pot all day?

Thanks

Doug

I was thinking about that last night.  Then this morning I thought about cold smoking it for an hour or so like I do fish before canning.  I think the venison would take on too much smoke for this, and I don't want to ruin a good thing.

How about watching that pressure guage for over an hour while adjusting stove.  Aint that a butch.

Keep records of what temp you set your stove to and for how long to reach a certain pressure and where you set it to maintain the correct pressure, then just follow those guidelines later, saves a lot of eyeballing.

I've only really canned leftover soups and such and pack them hot.  I think I have heard of people "cooking" it while canning. I think the flavors will marry fine as the jar usually boils for quite a while even after removing it from the canner.  Just be sure to can for the time required by the ingredient that needs the most time.

Just bought fifteen pounds of chicken breast at 97 cents a pound, will be chunking and canning that tomorrow, beats the canned chicken from Costco.  Then, I get to remove ten or eleven of our young roosters from the flock and can them as well.

 You can brown burger or sausage patties , and then can them . It has a better texture ,reheat in frying pan and they arent too bad . The sausage patties are great for making a quick gravy .
