Raw cubed beef just picked up from the meat locker. Enough for 56 quart jars of canned beef.
Ready to go in the canner. No sterilizing needed as the pressure canning process takes care of that. Everything goes in cold and cold water added to the canner.
Jars of raw cubed beef with some white onion and a bay leaf in the bottom of the jar. No liquid if stuffing jar with raw meat. I fill my pressure canner with 7 quart jars and about 3 inches of water.
First batch out and still boiling on the counter. 21 jars done tonight. A good run. Beef cans 90 minutes at 10 lbs pressure.
First injury of the season...steam burn from taking the lid off the pressure canner. Must ...use...potholders:)
