foods with starch content for pressure canning


I asked someone about canning pasta, like chicken noodle soop, (in my pressure canner) and was told that you could not can something like this because of the starch content, but did not know why. would anyone have information regarding this process or an explanation why I would not be able to succesfully can something like spagetti, ravioli, chicken soup.

thank you

Some starchy foods can be canned--potatos, dried beans.

I think the problem with canning pasta is that it gets mushy. Try canning the broth, meat, and vegetables together, and adding the noodles at serving time.

Ditto for the spaghetti--can the sauce, cook the pasta later.

If you are going to can, be sure to use the recipes from the Ball Blue Book or this site: National Center for Home Food Preservation
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
