I know a lot of people that can venison for later use. Figured we could start a thread to discuss what everyone does to it for canning and how they use it after.

Most of the time I just heat it up and cover noodles or rice. Wondering if anyone has recipes that I could use it in a crock pot to feed a mess of people. At this point I'm thinking stew or chili but hoping others have some different ideas and suggestions.

Musky99,

I pack the meat into either pint or quart jars and add a dash of pepper and half a beef bouillon(sp) cube for quarts and a quarter for pints. You don't have to add peepr or the beef cubes. I just like the final product by doing this. Process at 10 pounds of pressure for 75 minutes for pints and 90 minutes for quarts. Make sure the jars are clean, sterile and warm before adding to the pressure canner. Adding cold meat to the jars and then putting directly into the canner can cause them to break.

Good luck. You will like the results.

I have never canned before.

What do you put into the jars when canning?

Looking for canning recipes?

How long?

My son went on a tear this year and harvested a doe and buck with bow and gun so we have a lot of venison.  Just finished canning 7 qts.  Easily recipe is to cut up onions and mushrooms and put them into a slow cooker along with 2 qts of canned venison. Add a cup of beef bullion if you raw packed the meat without liquid and simmer.  Makes great hot beef sandwiches.

Reeldrag,

I did a couple of jars of BBQ beef the last time I fired up the pressure canner.  It was great.  Do you brown your meat cubes before canning or do you just cold pack with the onions, garlic & sauce?  I cold packed with good results.

Didn't get a deer this year but I troll the bargain bin at the grocery store for meat that's about to exceed its Sell Date.  Good cheap way of getting meat for canning.

Don't you normally need a pot close at hand 24 hours after eating that canned venny? It seems it could cause havoc with the bowels, especially if washed down with a few beers.

There was that time I ate to much venison chili before a deer hunt. It cost me about 30 minutes under a Hemlock tree in the swamp. I happened to have my coveralls on with about 6" of snow on the ground.

Have a jar planned for dinner tomorrow night. It does take a lot of prep work ie. Cubeing and pressure cooking but it is well worth it. Ended up doing 28 quarts this season and by late summer the family will wish I did more.

Holy crap this stuff I'd good, wish I would have tried it a long time ago. I'll use a little less better than bullion next time but otherwise it was amazing.

I do both but for ice fishing bunny hunting ect I like to add before canning so I can just grab Coleman stove and buns and a couple jars we off to the races. There is so much that can be done with canned venni. I'm working on a new thing 2 qt jar 1 lb venison rest hen of woods mushrooms and brown gravy. Trying to make a jar that can be poared over mashed taters or rice. Not perfect yet but close.
