How to Can Venison

Jill from Lodgepole NE asked:
Just watched an episode where you were canning venison. I was wondering just how much water is being placed in the jars with the venison, beef boullion and dried onions? The cans were cooked on high till steam came out then turned to low for how long? Where can you find the CanCooker that was used in this episode too?


Thanks for the question and just so you know, I had to call in the real expert on this one! My Wife! Here are her answers: Always leave 1" of space at the top of the jar and fill it with water. Use the handle of your spoon to to make holes for the water to soak down into the meat. After the CanCooker starts to steam, cook for 90 minutes. Make sure all your lids are boiled and the tops of the jars are clean with no chips. If the jar lids do not pop inward and seal, refrigerate and eat the meat as you normally would. As long as the jars seal, you can store your canned venison for a year or more just as you would any store purchased canned product. The CanCooker is available on The Hunter's Butcher Shop website so check it out! Great product!
