Many people are intimidated by the idea of canning their own meats. This fear is unfounded — canning meat is, IMO, one of the easiest things to can, especially using the raw pack method. In this video, I will show you how I take advantage of sales and put meat away for my family at a discount. If you are canning beef, you will be amazed at how tender and juicy the pressure canning process makes those less-tender (and less expensive) cuts. My favorite cut of meat to can are Round Steaks and London Broils (on sale of course). Besides saving you money, canned meat can also be a time saver — as the meat is already cooked, whipping up a quick casserole takes only the time to assemble the ingredients and heat it up. Another advantage of canning meat is, you can do it any time of the year, including the winter when it’s cold outside and it feels good to be in the kitchen working over a hot stove! : ) And if (okay, WHEN) inflation takes over, buying chicken breasts at a dollar a pound now (as I just did) and preserving them for later when they are $3 a pound is a great return on your investment so to speak. So don’t be afraid — get your pressure canner out and start canning some meat this winter. Canning isn’t just a late summer and fall activity anymore when you add meat to your canning repetoire!
