Traditional Wedding Soup

Basic Italian Wedding Soup that my family makes during the holidays
*For any Experienced Canner's that cross any of my recipes, I would really appreciate feedback if it would be safe to can in a pressure canner. I'm trying to save room in my poor, overstocked freezer.

Ingredients:
whole chicken (I use a 3lb roaster chicken)
1 or 2 jars Wylers Chicken Powder
1 1/3 pound ground round
2 heads escerole
1 or 2 lbs orzo pasta

Directions:
*use the ground round to make tiny meatballs.
*clean chicken and place in bottom of pot
*fill pot with cold water
*bring water to boil then turn heat to medium
*boil over medium heat till fully cooked 1-2 hours
*remove chicken
*add enough chicken powder to your liking
*add meat balls and cut up escerole
*let simmer for another 1/2-1 hour
*you can bring the soup back to a boil and add the orzo right in the soup or you can cook the orzo separately.

Thanks for posting It's safe to can this *without* the orzo. Starchy ingredients interfere with the canning process. Add the orzo when you heat the soup at serving time.

Ah...Italian weddings....they really know how to eat in style! (I stopped counting after 5 courses!). When the soup appeared I went to get the bread roll and everyone was aghast, some saying "don't eat the bread!"
I soon found out why....wow!
