So what's your secret? Do you do any cooking of the macaroni before jarring it?


I combine all the vegetables, Cook about 5 minutes, add macroni
cook for another 5 minutes . Pack in quart jars and pressure cook.
Add seasoning when you use it. A neat ole southern trick. I have
done this for at least 30 years.
One of the neatest things I just learned how to can is ground beef
80-20 dry packed. We love it for tacos, soup, and a number of ways.

Sorry, When I re-read That it does sound confusing. 80-20 is the
grade of the ground beef, I usually use chuck. You cook it and then
pack it in the jars dry. (add no liquid) and can. You can use leaner
meat but I would not use fatter.
I will try to find the link for you.

Oh yes it is!

Nothing like a cold winters night when you open up a jar of a stew, or chili or fresh veggies from Last summer!
