Hello and thank you for the wonderful article Canning 101. I agree with everything you have written in this article.
My wife and I have been canning for 45 years now and passed this procedure along to both our children (boy & girl). We also can year round, venison or moose (when I’m lucky) chili, and stew. One of my favorites is canning venison with just 1 teaspoon of salt nothing else added. This makes a great meal over rice, noodles or bread as the canned venison turns out like it is in gravy.
