  1. Prepare mason jars, lids and rings; if you are unsure on how to do this, consult a preserving manual.
  2. In a heavy saucepan, begin to brown ground beef, then add onion and garlic; continue cooking until meat is browned.
  3. Drain off fat.
  4. In a mixing bowl, stir together the brown sugar and mustard, then add remaining ingredients to brown sugar mixture.
  5. Stir into beef and heat thoroughly.
  6. Now, carefully spoon this hot mixture into hot jars, leaving a one-inch headspace.
  7. Remove air bubbles with a (nonmetallic) spatula and wipe the rims of the jars clean of any food residue.
  8. Place lid on jar with sealing compound next to glass; screw band down evenly and firmly just until a point of resistance is met; this is called being fingertip-tight.
  9. Process for 75 minutes at 10 pounds pressure.
