Recipe by Sharon123
This is in response to a request for canned venison. It comes from the Ball Blue Book of Canning. Yield is for 1 quart but make as many as you want or need to. Cook time is for quarts. You need a pressure cooker to can meat.

Success!!! I was afraid to try, but I did it! I have canned non acid veggies before, but never meat. My grandma used to can meats all the time and now I am brave and will venture out to other meats. Chicken is next! Thanks Sharon, this was so easy and turned out great!
