    Good idea Cheech. I love bacon. I'm still looking for a proven canning method. I understand you can do it with or without a pressure cooker.

    MoHntr you can use a hot water bath method if you wish, if just takes longer. With the hot water bath make sure that you use a pan for that. They have a rack that sits on the bottom so the glass jars do not bust

    Well I don't have a picture here to post, but my 12 year old got his first buck first time out...actually they were up in the mountains for 2 days then came back down and hunted on Wednesday and got it about noon. One shot one kill, dropped him right on the spot. It was a small button buck, but the youth around here are allowed to shoot smaller than three inch spikes. I will have to to try to add the picture when I get home...

    MoHntr,sorry it took so long but Ive been working a lot of hours.Canning venison is pretty simple.Cube your meat up in small bite size pieces.Pre heat your jars with hot water and fill them to within one inch of the top of the jar with meat.Have your meat at close to room temp before putting it into your jars.Heat up your lids,place them on your jars and screw on rings.Place jars into PRESSURE COOKER at 10 lbs pressure.Process quarts for 90 minutes and pints for 75 minutes.After pressure is reduced remove jars and set on a wite rack or a thick towell away from any drafts and the jars will seal.I take it you know the basics of using a pressure cooker.I would NOT try to use the water bath method on meat.Theres no way you can build enough heat in a water bath to kill all the bacteria in meat.The most you can get this way is boiling temp,while in a pressure cooker the temps get much higher.You can add salt or any other spices you desire to the meat.Do not put any water in the jars as the meat makes its own juices.I like to use the meat with noodels or rice.Open a jar and mix in some liquid beef bullion and thicken it with a little cornstarch and it makes a wonderful gravy.Hope this helps,if you have any more questions feel free to ask,David

    David, when you can venison is it fully cooked and ready to eat after processing? I would assume that it is, but I've never tried it. Thanks.
     
  10. My mom used to can alot of deer meat when I was a kid. I remember she used to put onions, some garlic, and other spices in the jars. I lived off that stuff when I was at college. It was real tender and tasty. Used to throw a pint in the frying pan and make a gravy like dacdots said and then put it over mashed potatoes. A quick, easy and cheap meal. Yum Yum....

    ultramag,yes its fully cooked right out of the jar.The meat does its cooking in the pressure cooker.Many might realize it but under pressure the heat inside gets really high like 3 to 400 deg according how many pounds of pressure you use.Thats why you can cook food in a pressure cooker so much faster than any other way.You can cook roasr,soup chili and many other things right in the cooker normally in half the time it takes with traditional methods.Meat especially comes out soooo tender,

    Thanks, I may have to can a little venison next year to try it. I am all too familiar with the pressure cooker. Two people with a 2800 sq. ft. garden we have done a bunch of canning. I can remember when I was a little guy and counting them lids pop to be sure they all sealed. I sure felt important.

    Ya'll didn't know thats how us MoBillies learn to count did ya. :shock:

    I already checked, and none of these poked their head up. Mrs. Dickeydoo said if that had happened to her, she'd have just stuck it in the freezer. Good Girl!
