    Thank you Molly
    Yes it is very important to pass this skill on since it is become less and less passed on.
    We are a big seafood lovers from growing up in the great Pacific NorthWest (Seattle) but now I live in Massachusettes and work in Boston but want to get back to Seattle eventually.
    So I want to can some seafood of course and I wounder if you can squid since you catch it here easly.

    There are no recommendations for canning squid in the National Center for Home Food Preservation USDA database, but squid does freeze very well.

    This is what Dr. Elizabeth Andress of the University of Georgia has to say about canning squid: "Our Center's research and expertise is in the area of preserving food at home. If it is home food (non-commercial) preservation recommendations that you are looking for, the only recommendations that we have for home canning seafood products are here: http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/how/can5_meat.html

    We (USDA/Cooperative Extension partners) do not have a home canning process for squid, octopus or calamari. A canning process, with it's accompanying heat effects, is very likely to affect the texture of these foods. However, we do not have any experience with preservation of squid/octopus/calamari at home. Additionally, each canning process has to be researched, and cannot be extrapolated from one product to another. Read why in this backgrounder:
    ttp://www.uga.edu/nchfp/publications/nchfp/factsheets/heatprocessingbackgrounder.html

    Freezing squid may be a good method of preserving it, if freezing is an option for you. Here is some information on methods used to preserve squid, from FAO:
    http://www.fao.org/wairdocs/tan/x5948e/x5948e01.htm
    www.codexalimentarius.net/download/standards/116/CXS_191e.pdf

    If it is commercial food preservation expertise that you are looking for, the Institute of Food Technologists (http://www.ift.org) is a good resource. They have a database of experts in various areas of food manufacturing and process development."

    Thanks so much for the fast replies.
    I guess freezing is what I will do.But as for Salmon thats a whole different story as we like both smoked and just plain and I will be doing a lot of it.

    I, too, have an All American 921 pressure canner never out of the box, purchased in 2005. Back then I had a garden and the dream was to can all those beautiful tomatoes and never again taste a tinny tomato in my life. Then came Katrina. I still have the canner, but not the garden. I'm hoping this year I can get some good tomato karma. icon_biggrin.gif

    P.S. I'm still afraid to use the pressure canner. If I blow the roof off, will insurance cover that? icon_question.gif

    Modern pressure canners have safety features that will help prevent explosions, CF. I'd be very surprised if such a quality canner such as you have exploded.

    See if you don't find this information helpful: USING PRESSURE CANNERS (link).

    Thank you very much, Molly, for the comfort and encouragement. I just remember my grandma telling me to not get close to the stove when the pressure cooker was blowing steam. She always had a pantry of canned tomatoes and other fresh garden goodies that I long to replicate. I want my food to be fresh and wholesome without chemical additives. It's the best I can do for myself in my old age, lol. I'll go read your link now. Thanks again!

    Well I hope you get your garden back and then can some tomatos in jars then those tinny ones you can buy.
    Don't be affraid of you 921 it is real easy to use just make sure you lubricate the lid and pot so it seals right.
