We have been enjoying home canned salmon for two years now. This appears to be an excellent recipe, especially if you want a minimal taste influence from added ingredients. We use a variation as follows for one pint of salmon: 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp vinegar, 2 Tbsp catsup (adds color), 2 Tbsp olive oil. Nutritonally canned salmon is a well balanced and easily digestable protein containing polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), omega-3 fatty acids, calcium (bone-in), potassium, vitamin 'D'& 'B'.
