I like it, my grandmother used to do quite a bit of it. Makes it's own gravy, pretty tasty. Once canned, it will keep well- even when the power goes out!

Roy did you use a pressure canner? It seems to be the only way you can safely can low acidic food like this. Always thought about buying one. We do a lot of canning of fruit jam in the fall, but never done anything like this.

My girlfriend uses a regular pressure cooker for canning venison or any other foods.

I may have to invest in one. I always just used a big pot for canning fruit, etc. They have some much damn sugar and acidity in them that you don't really need the pressure. Thanks!

I have done this many times over the years. Made 90 bottles out of the neck and a little scrap mean of a Moose one year back in Nova Scotia. It's great for stews. Open a couple of bottles, add some potatoes, veggies, etc and it's a nice quick meal. I used to take a bottle or two into the duck blind also.

I use add little salt to the bottom of the mason jar, then I do layers of diced onions and cubed mean until full. Then put the lid on loosely. Place in a pot of boiling water (below the lid level) and let it boil three hours, then tighten the lid and throw it on the pantry shelf. Easy as can be. I do it outside on the deck on a Coleman stove. If you do it inside make sure you have the stove fan going, it generates a lot of moisture. One time I wasn't paying attention and left it boiling without the fan I had water running down the walls in the kitchen by the end!

I had some hunters over from NY, and they kept telling me that their sister cans all their deer. So this year I decided to try it out, love it. Great way to process the meat. Use it over noodles or stew or just out of jar with crackers.
