I have canned chili quite successfully in the past. I took a very large stock pot put my meat, a combination of ground beef and ground turkey in the pot with lots of onions chopped up. When the meat is almost cooked and the onions translucent I add the chili beans and tomato juice and some times tomatoes. Bring that to a boil. Ladle in to hot jars and put it all in the pressure cooker for 10 lbs pressure for twenty minutes. Cool and put up to enjoy later. I will be making some in about three weeks. Have to wait until after the first of the month.

The Lord is my tower and my strength!

Skeetor - Yes you can can fish. I have not done it myself, but I know someone who has and it's on my bucket list. I would like to can my own tuna or salmon, but until I can find it at a price that doesn't give me vertigo, I'll have to wait. I know I'll stumble on a good price eventually and I'll be ready!.

I am thankful.

I have been off the Spark planet the last few days so welcome to the team.

My only problem with canning (or bottling as we call it here in Australia) is the lack of storage, if I could get someone to build me a place I'd be happy to can more often

Thank you for the warm welcome!

As to canning chili, yes you can can chili. I don't generally can my made up, though. I can my meat with just salt and garlic (I put garlic in everything) and then can my beans separately. Just because of chili and because sometimes you don't have enough meat to completely fill your pressure canner, I included a quick and easy recipe for canning your own chili beans. It is SUPER easy! I use beans that are just rinsed, not soaked or anything. They do all the soaking they need to do during the pressure canning process. My canner holds 18 pint jars, so if I have 10 jars of meat, I'll throw together 8 jars of beans and can it all at the same time.

Thanks again for welcoming me to the group! I am loving all the encouragement and this is day 5 of behaving myself and tracking foods and exercise. My scales aren't showing but a half pound loss, but my energy level is way up and I feel great! That's just as important as the weight loss to me!!

I am thankful.
