Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
I have some of the tattler lids but havent used them yet.

I dont know if I am going to make butter, it seems like alot of work for starting out with more then you end up with.

Are you canning meats? I am in the process of doing chicken breast, 20 more mins to go. Its my first time.

I hope they turn out ok.
 Quoting: flavapor


can you take some pics and upload them to photobucket or tinypics? i'll post them.
 Quoting: tinygreen


I can take pics, but I dont know how to upload to photobucket or the other one you mentioned, if you want to post it or pm me instructions I can try tomorrow.

I just canned them in water, figured that way I could do what ever I want with them when I open them up. I only got 4 quarts of chicken breast out of ten pounds of chicken, I thought I would get more than that. There are 3.5 breasts in each jar.
 Quoting: flavapor


are you using your phone or a camera? i only know how to do the phone uploading.

yeah, it's tough when you realize that you might not get as much as you hoped. but the chicken will be delicious and tender.

did they all seal?

i have to go to sleep now, i have to be up at 6. i'll pm you in the morning and we'll hash out the uploading.hf

i bet you could can hash too. omg, i have to stop thinking about canning everything!!chuckle
 Quoting: tinygreen

A camera, although my son has an Iphone and could probably take a pic or two for me. As for the hash scared

Personal pinned for later perusal. Thanks Tiny green for another great thread. I only just noticed it.
I've been dehydrating frozen peas and corn for weeks now. I just started on fresh onions, but I've never jarred or canned anything.
I'm assuming there's a lot of good advice here!
Doh! tried to give good karma, but I've already done it this week!

Sorry it took so long to reply, I went to bed just after I posted that!
I'm using a dehydrator on the peas and corn. They're really cheap frozen (peas $1.99 per kg, corn $2.99 per kg) I've also done frozen beans and broccoli. They come out O.K but re-hydrate a little tough.
The onions I just chopped up fresh ($2.99 per kg) and put in the dehydrator shelves just like that.
As for how they come out.... I'll tell you in a few hours when my first batch is finished!

no, you have to can meat under pressure. there is a risk of botulism otherwise.

same for water bath.

just talked to my mom. she said she would never can anything in an oven.

water bath or under pressure are the only safe ways to go.

on an amusing note, when i was talking to my mom, my dad asked where i was talking to people about canning. i said glp. he said, 'you're talking about canning on your radical website!'. i said, 'even radicals want the best for their familys'. he just glared at me.

he thinks glp is making me even more radical then i have been. which is totally foolish. i've always been this way.lmao

4ha that was funny. but on a serious note, you have to be really careful with meat. it can make you seriously ill.

you can make beef jerky in the oven though.

Re: >>>>Sustainable Living PLUS Canning and Dehydrating Food<<<<
I need to know... can you can meat without a pressure cooker? Can you use the water bat method and just boil longer? Right now I do not own a pressure cooker and when shopping around for one, they tell you not to use them on a ceramic cook top, which is what we have. I know there are the counter top varieties, but eh... Do I have any other options?

NO!!! You have to get the temp to 240 or better and boil method doesnt go above 212.

A pressure canner is different than a pressure cooker. You can cook and can in a canner, but you cant can in a cooker.

HA. Sounds like a Dr. Suess book

Also, I know its taboo here, but I keep hearing people say they can in the oven, which makes sense to me cause you can get the temp hot. I have heard that in Australia and Europe they still do it that way, but I dont know anything about it, check out some websites and see what you can find.

just talked to my mom. she said she would never can anything in an oven.

water bath or under pressure are the only safe ways to go.

on an amusing note, when i was talking to my mom, my dad asked where i was talking to people about canning. i said glp. he said, 'you're talking about canning on your radical website!'. i said, 'even radicals want the best for their familys'. he just glared at me.

he thinks glp is making me even more radical then i have been. which is totally foolish. i've always been this way.lmao

I wouldnt do the oven way either, but I used to be on a forum and all the people from Australia used to make fun of me because they said all americans are afraid of oven canning but we have been doing it for yrs. They talked about grandma, mom and them passing down recipes, some were you tube videos, and said they have been eating canned food that way for 50 yrs. Since I have my pressure canner thats what I use. I dont have a dehydrator but my oven goes to 200 and has convection and some people said I can do it in there with a pan that has holes in it or on screening material on the oven racks. A bag of peas is not to epensive to try but I am waiting till winter when the heat will be welcome.
