Red face Canning calamari/squid/octopus

Has anyone ever tried canning calamari/squid/octopus? I know I have to use a pressure canner but haven't been able to get any recipes on the web.

National Center for Home Food Preservation | How Do I? Can Meats

is the official USDA canning website. There are no recipes for those items, but I would think the same guidelines used for clams would work for squid etc.

My mum used to pickle them/put them in jars because my dad used to catch Squid/Cuttlefish/Octopus all the Time.

I personally have never done so.

but they sure were YUM!

Thank you ! Will let you know if I find any good recipes. I have a good one for calamari but it's only for marinading to eat within a day or two and not for canning.

my mum used to boil it in white vinegar and water, put it in a jar and cover it in oil. can't remember what/if she put other stuff.

she also used to boil it in the vinegar and water and marinate it with garlic, parsley and oil and i think lemon juice.
