    Yes Jars, it's known as "canning" in the US.

    But for canning meat, it's not wise to use a boiling water bath to process the jars, This thread is about using a pressure cooker to process the jars.

    I am adding three links simply because this is a topic near and dear to my heart and guessing can be dangerous indeed.

    Well a quick update... I am impatient and so Saturday morning I decided to forgo the whole storage thing and open a jar up for breakfast to try. It turned out really good with just cold packing and a little beef bullion in each jar. Then for lunch I opened another jar for nachos and that was pretty good too! I think once baby gets here (any day now...not that we are waiting lol) I will have to get the canner going again so we have some quick meals on hand that are actually remotely healthy and tasty. I may even expand a bit beyond just putting bullion in for flavoring.

    This is an understatement...I don't know what I am more excited about doing in my free time anymore...canning, casting, reloading, playing with my lathe, I think shooting is on that list somewhere too lol.

    You will have to let us know how much free time you have after your baby arrives. Congradulations !

    Thanks JonB, I guessing even less with our two year old butting I am hoping with enough hobbies I can do a hour here or there. One of the nice things about canning is while it's actually under pressure it's pretty hands off. I found case prep is also a good one...work for a bit wash hands and then wrangle the little ones.

    Well baby is apparently getting comfortable, convienently the local grocery store had beef for 2.89 a pound I took it as a sign that I needed to break out the canner for round 2. Tonight we have 7 quarts of round roast with bullion and I got adventurous tonight and added some garlic. Now if only I can save some of this batch for those quick meals I had planned with the original batch. Woohoo! Depending on when baby decides to make an appearance I may start chicken this weekend.

    Tri-tip works well for canning. Just the right amount of fat.
