Pint or half-pint jar of venison, couple cans of mixed vegies, a package of low sodium brown gravy mix, bit of liquid if needed. Heat to simmer. Quick camp stew.

I usually pressure can raw pack with nothing but a little lard in the jar so I can use it with whatever I want to make, in terms of general storage.

When making a "meal in a jar", the possibilities are nearly endless.

Meat, salt.


Keep it basic.
Then it is good for whatever you want later.
Pit a bunch of stuff in it, it will be great for wherever you headed.

And likely useless for other stuff.

Depends on what you are doing.


We canned multiple deer, pork and beef.
It was food for the future. Not jars for gifts, something to talk about,
or specific use stuff.

Just opened a pint jar tonight, dumped it in a saucepan and added a 1/4 stick of butter, whipped up some potatoes out of a box in the microwave and had a meal in 10 minutes and it was great. I put a couple dashes of Montreal steak seasoning in the pan also!

The glory of canned venison.
1.it tastes good
2.You don't have all your meat go bad if the freezer dies
3. It's cooked, you can even eat it cold.

You tamp each lift give a sprinkle of sea salt and a tablespoon of mixed chopped onion and fresh garlic on top each lift.. mb

Meat and salt/beef bouillon.

I like to keep it simple, that way I use it for many different recipes. Mexican, chinese, or meat and potatoes.

That's how we do it, salt or a bullion cube. Keep it simple, doctor it later depending on the dish you're making.
My record is 88 jars of elk in one day. We usually do a couple hundred jars a year.

I will preface this by saying I am not a canner, however if her food doesn't spoil and hasn't given anybody botulism, eh!!!

I think it's a little over the top to criticize what works for her.

She has 667,000 subscribers. Her County Extension Service could teach her a bunch about canning so she can stop giving bad advice and explanations.

Do half pints need to be processed for less time than pints? I’m assuming yes since quarts call for more time than pints but I can’t find any info on half pints.

I always did pints at 12lb for 90 minutes. Recently did a test batch of half pints for 75 minutes and they had a better texture than when they’d been done for 90, firmer and less cooked down.

If you care about texture you should try browning rather than raw packing. I mention that only because most here are completely uninterested in improving flavor.

I have tried it both ways in reference to browning. Honestly I can’t tell a big enough difference to make it worth the extra time.

I just want to make sure I’m not going to ruin a bunch of meat making jars of poison.

Apparently the method shown in the video is not uncommon watched a different one that the only difference was elk not deer and she didn't pour water in the jar.

Just canned 5 quarts venison from the hind quarters of one doe. I always use the raw pack method and it turns out great. Trick is to really get it packed in there and remove as much of the trapped air as possible.
