Oh yeah, I am hooked allright. LOL
I am actually proud of myself....not much of a better feeling than to have all your jars seal after all the hard work!!
Now as long as they stay sealed then I am in the game! LOL
Thanks everyone.....

worldengineer -

I raw pack (large critters - beef, pork and etc.), cut it into 1 inch cubes and place in wide mouth qt. jars. I don't pack mine ... or add water, salt or anything else. (but that is just me )

Pressure can for 1 and half hours at 10# (check you area for the right pressure)

Some folks add water and salt ... I don't.

How long does that last ... We can for a year but have used it two or three years past (jars got pushed to the back ;)). As long as the seal is good with no rust on the lids.

Looks great. Little darkening at the top (no fluid covering) is ok as long as you have a good seal. We had pork paprikash last night from my canned pork loin. OMG it was good and quick too. (My sour cream was pre Japan incident)

canning is like putting coins in a jar, it'll still be there at the same price when the price goes up and the power is off. I see you're losing some liquid. are you using 1" head space?

ROFL I felt the same way! I had a pressure canner/cooker for years before I ever even took it out of the box I was so scared of it. :nuts: I blame my parents!

Exsheeple you did an outstanding job! Congradulations on such a great first try! :beercheer:

Yep, you must be. I guess I'm gonna have to try it. Have never eaten any home canned meat. I have canned and helped can veggies just about my whole life. So, I may have to try meat now. Thanks for sharing yours with us.
