Im wondering who here has bottled deer meat without the use of a preasure cooker, im sure many have. Also how long to boil for
Duck meat is also amazing when done like this, i breast all my ducks and cook 90% of them this waySlice 1/2" thick pieces of onion and put in bottom of each jar. Stuff jar full to the bottom of the neck leaving a small space. All you need is a large canning pot and put a wire trivet in the bottom so the jars don't break during boiling. Place jars in pot then fill pot with water to the ring of the jar. Once water starts to boil, turn down heat to slow boil, then boil for 3 hours. You will have to add water once or twice during this time. Caution, pour in hot water from taps not cold. Jars may break. This process will tenderize the meat and seal it for a couple of years. Enjoy!
Basically yes, add heat, water boils but the pressure that builds inside a pressure cooker/canner is higher then in the non-pressure building canning pot which increases the boiling point of the water within.unless I am missing something how could a pressure cooker / canner be any safer. doesn't it work basically the same
I cook in boiling water for 3hrs...hard to imagine this isn't hot enough
