just another Sunday afternoon

First I boiled 10 pounds of ground beef, you can add onions, peppers... at this point if you want to.  Boiling so I can get the broth from it.
Then I strained it.

After I put it in the jars I covered it with boiling water.
I ended up with 8 pints of ready to use beef.  One pint holds about 2 cups which is what you get from a pound.

  2. You know....I know there are alot of things I don't know, but I guess I just never realized you could can meat......how long does this last or is it just like other canned items?

  3. thanx for checking me out. Jana, I have only recently started canning meat. I believe it should last up to a year. I just canned 5 pints of chicken today. I figure if I have followed all the precautions and reheat it thoroughly it will be fine, same as veggies.
