Mind you we have one muzzleloader between the two of us so she wants us to sit together and "if a buck comes in she gets it, and if a doe comes in I can shoot it" . . . . . . . Yes dear :)
    That is too funny....for real LOL!

    We canned up 3qts of fajita flavor, and 2qt of lipton French onion soup flavor with my buck from rifle. I'm working on her deer right now (hoping to finish it tonight), then my muzzy doe next. Both those deer will all be canned except for a little burger, backstraps and inners loins. Probably do a few more fajita, quite a few more French onion, and I'll do some beef bouillon cubes with mushrooms and onions. Can usually fit about 2lbs of meat in a qt.

    Its delicious. My wife likes venison steaks and burger, but after having it canned for the first time last year she said she'd prefer it that way over anything else. Hence the reason we're pretty much putting two deer into just cans. Makes good xmas presents too

    I'd like to do this with waterfowl, so it doesn't taste like, you know, waterfowl.

    My mother used to can alot of my venison. Unfortunately i never really paid much attention to how she did it. I would really like to get into canning again. I agree, the meat is excellent!

    Forgot to mention the easy side of it too. We have two young kids at home. Constantly chasing one around the house and the other one is one night basketball practice, the next ski club, the next hanging out with this friend or the other. Its nice to pop a jar throw it in the sauce pan, heat it up, and put on top of egg noodles. Dinner done.

    Hoops its super easy. All you need is a pressure cooker, jars, lids, non iodized salt, and w/e seasonings you want. Theres a ton of youtube videos on how to do it too. My one piece of advice is some videos say fill the jars to the shoulders with water after its full of meat. Don't do this. The meat creates its own liquid.

    What do you do just pour in a packet of the seasoning before the canning process? Or do you mix w/ the meat before you put in the jar? Like you just said also, don't add water.
