I'm a Canning Machine!

Yeehooh! I canned my first meat last night. Just two half pints of salmon to see what it would end up like. One I added a tablespoon of olive oil, the other none. Put a 1/4 tsp of salt in both. I raw packed it and did it at 12 lbs for 100 minutes. The jars sealed well and it looks great! Tonight (or tomorrow,) I will be doing ham. Quite proud of myself! :eat:

Re: I'm a Canning Machine!

We went to a family reunion some years ago and one of the attendees brought some Coho Salmon that they had canned. It was the best Salmon I had ever tasted. So hopefully yours will turn out as delicious as the one we tried.

Re: I'm a Canning Machine!

Thanks guys! The salmon was awesome and I've canned another eight jars. The ham worked out great too! Since I made stock with the ham bone, I canned Malcolm some ham and lentil soup. Also did pork and beans. Almost everyday I have canned something. Today was carrots and two loads of tomatoes :eat:

Re: I'm a Canning Machine!

Good for you Susan. I did a lot of bottling this year for the first time. Everything I grew in the garden got either bottled or frozen. Makes you feel kinds good doesn't it.

Re: I'm a Canning Machine!

Nice Susan! I'm sure your family will enjoy the results all winter.

This year we had an amazing fruit and veggie crop but were short on time. I froze and dehydrated but no canning. I like the dehydrator for dried fruit (apples are especially good), fruit leather, herbs and especially "sun dried tomatoes", we packed the dried tomatoes in olive oil with some fresh rosemary and I think they turned out amazing.

Re: I'm a Canning Machine!

Ooh... That sounds yummy PG! I should do that with the next batch due to ripen. I have a dip recipe for sundried tomatoes that I love!
