Another advantage to canning in tin is that you can pack meat into the cans and roast open cans in the oven. Then seal and sterilize cans. This takes longer but some people like the roasted taste.

Whe you cook your canned meat in a pressure cooker at 280 degrees for an hour and a half, it is far more sterile than boiling water could ever get it ,making the pre sterilizing irrelevant.

ROTFL! You funny man, Gord! I think you are prolly right too!


That Brinkman farms mob is the go. Someone gave us a can of the ground beef and a can of sliced steak.
The sliced steak was the most excellent canned product I have ever had!

ok, very funny Gord ; -)

and it isn't tinned, but Trader Joes has shelf stable pouches of roast beef that sautes up with onions and stuff pretty good for making into whatever.

If I may... you pre-boil the jars to get the glass very hot, then add the hot food to the hot jars, close jars, place in pan, bring pressure cooker up to steam, then start counting your time. Before I've not gotten the jars hot and though I processed for an hour (1/2 pint sized jars) and using hot foods they only stayed good, i.e. sealed, for a few months. The boiled jars made a difference so yes, I do so every time now.

The Dehydrator Bible is the best book I've seen on drying foods at home. Rather than the generic instructions to dry vegetables for x number of minutes, or fruit for x number of minutes, it breaks down each vegetable and each fruit and tells you how thick to slice it, or whether it needs to be pureed, how long to dry it and at what temperature, plus it has recipes and menus for complete meals from dehydrated foods. It also has a section for meals and cottage cheese. There's even a chapter with menus for 7 or 10 day plans (can't remember exactly and the book isn't in front of me) that tell you which pans you'll need and how much water to pack in order to prepare all the meals. In other words, they've done all the work for me! I'd always hoped to find a book with all of this info, and finally did.

Hot water bath canning is not recommended for most foods. Get a copy of the Ball Canning book, or the FDA guidelines at National Center for Home Food Preservation | USDA Publications


You should pressure can meats, especially.

Brinkman's Beef and Pork is great. Yoders canned Bacon. I also have puchased a variety of canned Chicken. BUT - I cannot find it in the Caribbean. I am actually very surprised by this.

Is Yoder's the same as (or similar to) the old "Celebrity" canned bacon?

Similar, but I believe Yoder's is packaged in the US while the Celebrity was a product of Hungary.

I followed the link - yuck. I can do without bacon if the only way to have it on board is in a can.
