  1. Will need 4 - pint mason jars with lids rings, a pressure cooker or canner, a clean dish towel Jar lifter and a wire rack.
  2. Clean and sterilize the jars check for cracks etc.
  3. Pack jars with fish (do not de-bone), leave 1 inch headspace, add 1/2 teaspoons table salt.
  4. Seal jars tight but not too tight or will crack,.
  5. Set on wire rack in cooker and add 3 inches of water.

I have been making canned Trout for years and DH loves it. I add 1 TBS Kraft Catalina dressing and a dash of Tabasco sauce to each jar before processing. Try it! You will like it.
