This I hope will help other people know that canning your own meats really is not that hard to do I made chicken and dumplings over a year ago and tried to can them in a presser cooked one had gone bad in a few weeks bad seal on it so I just keep putting of trying the rest so I maned up today and open o of the jars the meal smelled fine taste was bland but nothing that a little garlic did not solve! After this I think I'm going to start canning more meat meals!

My grandma told me stories of when she would can whole meals so grandpa could take them with him while he farmed. They would stay canned for months. When she got something, they canned it. My family cans everything from the garden. Once you get into it, its really easy and save you a bunch down the road.

I like to roll up venison steaks and can them that way. Ya don't even have to heat them up, I save the juice to make gravy.

Now I'm hungry...

Smell is the greatest tool the one that had the bad seal stunk to high hell almost like road kill in a can! But I can't say I blame you it took me over a year to try mine. Bit I'm glad I did cause know I'm going to do a lot more.

I think the stinky ones are no worry at all.
What you need to worry about is botulism, which will kill you while being tasteless.

I had salmonella poisoning as a kid, my wife swears that's why I never get sick.


My grandmother canned everything meat, veggies, soups, ...watermelon

I wish I'd paid attention.

It took me 5 minutes to understand what you were saying. Use periods next time.

Yea. It did kinda hurt the brain to read.

I tried to ask my grandmother in law about canning. Told her I like to make big batches of chili and would like to put some in some jars instead of taking up freezer space. She laughed at me "well just make smaller batches." Kept laughing. Said it wasn't worth bothering with, and it was way to hard. I figured someone from her generation would have known its a viable skill to know. Guess not. SO, i'll go it alone.
