Canning Dairy

Yeah I know... Canning with dairy isn't safe cause there hasn't been any official testing. But I'd like to know, does anyone has any actual experience canning with dairy?

I mean you can buy canned alfredo sauce at the supermarket so it's got to have some sort of shelf life.

My recipe is an olive garden zupa toscano and has 8 ounces of heavy cream.

Any ideas?

Best regards,

Can the soup without the cream and add it in when you're heating it for dinner.

Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking

It's not because there has been no testing. It's because 1) fats can go rancid during storage, 2) home canners can't reach the same temperatures and pressures as commercial equipment and 3) commercial producers use preservatives. It's not safe to can creamy soups at home.

Andy has the right idea.
