Today I can see there is more water than grease in some of the jars. Expected grease but the water sure was a surprise!Davarm said:If you didn't have the liquid/fat in the bottom of the jars, that would be a sign you may have done something wrong.lol
Maybe it was the brown paper I used but it ripped quite a bit.Freyadog said:I found when I was canning my bacon that once you get the paper just inside the top of the jar you start gently twisting and sort of pushing at the same time. It went right in.
You can rub oil or bacon grease on the outside of the brown paper bundle to make it easier to stuff/twist into the jars.Maybe it was the brown paper I used but it ripped quite a bit.
The Kroger brand bacon had very little water compared to the discount store ones.
Yes. You can can dry pack raw bacon.OMG...you have way more ba&&s than me! I am new at canning and can't figure this out! You just stick bacon ina a jar!?
No water?...(I am not being my typical sarcastic self...I am seriously fluxmoxed by this technique)
You can buy the cheaper "Ends and Pieces", fill a jar and can it without the paper separator if you just want to use it for seasoning or to mix with scrambled eggs.Wonderful thread. I have never managed to can bacon, it disapears too fast around here. I have however eaten lots of it. This may get me moving on the task.
