This recipes assumes you know and use the proper canning methods. This is the way my MIL, Mother and I have done it for years and years. I see in the latest Ball Blue Book that they list the proper way is to hot pack it. I truly don't see the difference between wild game and raw pack pork. I use the basic directions for stew meat.

Have used this recipe for years. My family really enjoys this. You can use this so many different ways. One of our favorite ways is to open and drain. Mix a can of cream of chicken soup, a pack of onion soup mix and stir into the meat. put in a baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice. Delicious and easy! I also use it with soups or stews.
