You do have to be careful and clean.
So how do you go about canning tuna using a pressure cooker? My short-term preserved albacore was delicious but took up valuable fridge space and I'd like to preserve it for longer than 2 weeks.

Re: Tuna

Most pressure cookers come with the canning instructions, time need at what pressure to get a good seal etc... You can use cans or Jars. I like jars because you can see inside, and reuse, the down side is breakage, I have been lucky and not had many break. Gotta pack them like eggs.

Re: Tuna

Didn't get any canning instructions with mine, better start doing some research!

Re: Tuna

I use USDA guidelines for canning. See National Center for Home Food Preservation | USDA Publications . Tuna gets it's own section on page 5-14. USDA is pretty conservative but that probably isn't bad for canning.

Re: Tuna

Tuna doesn't dry out as bad as other fish due to their oil content. Never hurts to add a little olive oil & garlic. I like garlic.

Re: Tuna

Worms are in just about every fish in the ocean! If ya don't eat them raw theres just no problem!! There are probly worms in every piece of fish you have ever eaten! Most times the worms are in the tail end of the fish !! So a little trim here and there will make it a little more better for those uggie folks who let there mind control there hunger !LOL If the meats firm ya just gotta cook it and your good to go !! if the fish is soft and soggie don't eat it !! use it for crab or lobster bait !!
