Today we are canning some corned beef. I got a really great buy on corned beef in early April after St. Patrick's day in my area. We don't see corned beef on a regular basis in my area so I grabbed what I though I would use. I ended up purchasing 16 packages. I need room in my freezer now for other things so it's time to can this up for future use.
I thawed 9 packages of the beef and cubed 7 of them for canning. The other two went into the crock pot for supper and lunches. Easy meal while having a canning day that also happens to be a church night.
I ended up with 5 pints of canned corned beef when all was said and done. All but one jar sealed so we had one to taste. It was delicious as expected. I have never canned corned beef before but it is just like canning any other meat. Simple, dry pack and easy.
If you are interested in pressure canning but have not gotten your feet wet yet. Please be sure to start with water bath canning. Make sure you have all the proper equipment, don't cut corners. Do your research. Purchase the Ball Blue Book for food preservation or the Ball Complete Book of Home Canning. Additionally a great resource for home canning is the National Center for Home Food Preservation. You can find their website here: http://nchfp.uga.edu/
Canning is a wonderful skill to procure. You will use it for a lifetime and you can be proud to pass on that skill to up and coming generations. There is little, more satisfying than being able to preserve food for a later time to place on the table to feed your family or to provide food to other either as gifts or in a time of need. Being able to stock your pantry with foods you have prepared yourself is something you cannot substitute anywhere else.
I hope that you will try canning corned beef and I hope you love it!
Happy eating and happy canning!
