    too funny I have lots of canning jars empty, but I also fill mine with all my dry staples, and use them for leftovers in the fridge, and to take lunch to work, and share food with friends (my good friends return jars , and if not, I'm always on the lookout for jars at thrift stores.

    Happy canning in 2013!...my last canning last year was salsa & blueberry jam on Dec. 23rd...for Christmas gifts, of course.

    You guys are making me hungry and I'm really craving pickles. I have the 250 ml jars from when I used to make cat and dog food but that was frozen and raw. I may give this canning thing a shot some day!

    FYI on turkeys.... I have a person in my family that pro butchered for years. He cut up my turkey and Mom's... long story short the bigger the turkey the more meat you get off the bird. A 12 lb bird might yeild 5lbs of boneless meat.... but a 22lb bird will yield 11. LOL us couponers just have to know these bottom lines!

    I did make some turkey soup... I am sure there are several ways to do it but here is what I did... almost all of the meat got cut off the bones (I left enough for the soup) then the bones and carrots onion and celery with water went into a big pot to make the broth. While that was cooking on the stove I proceeded to can turkey meat. Some say to add a tsp of salt to a pint jar... i add about 1/4 of a teaspoon. I like salt and use it all the time... to me a teaspoon comes out very salty and it doesn't add to the shelf life... if you add less you can put more in later when you open the jar. My turkey was a raw pack. After a few hours when the turkey stock was ready I strained it and took the remaining meat off the bones and I tasted the stock. If the stock requires salt or boulian add it now and get it to your taste.. don't add pepper until you reheat it... black pepper can intensify in flavor. I got my 7 quart size jars ready and dropped the cut up meat into the bottom of the jars then I put in fresh cut up celery carrots and onions on top. The broth then went on top of the meat and veg and is ready to can. I did not add any noodles because they go mushy and they are not recommended. I left enough room in every jar so when I heat up my soup I can just throw in a hand full of noodles and cook them right in the broth... and presto chango I now have 7 jars of soup on hand for days when we are not feeling up to snuff.

    Processing time for 500mls with meat (including soup) is still 75 mins. For the quart jars my soup was processed the full 90 mins.

    Sorry I forgot to add that up there ^^^ LOL

    Does anyone reuse Classico or PC pasta sauce jars? I noticed they say 'mason' on them and I saved them, but not sure where to get new lids for them, if the bernadin ones will fit, if I should reuse them at all..does anyone do this? It would be nice to be able to use these for canning.

    tomorrow I am making fruit preserves with my berries from the freezer, I must admit it will clear quite a space in my freezer.

    I am defrosting my turkey as we speak and plan to cook on Sunday and will be making soup on Sunday evening hopefully if all goes well.

    I reuse jars all the time. I use them for the items I dehydrate like carrots, onions, peppers and they are great for storing items like open packages of crackers. If you put in your food then put a hand warmer on top leaving a small gap at the top and a perfectly clean rim you screw that cap on nice and snug then the hand warmer removes all of the air out of the container and it seals. Once the jars are sealed the product is good for a very long time. In the case of veggies they are good for up to 25 years if they are sealed in a cold dark place. (a box even works to keep it dark) When I dry up onion that I can not use up in time before it spoils I have a choice to rehydrate it in a recipe or make onion powder in a blender or a magic bullet type of gadget. I can also make up my own celery salt and other items. (homemade celery salt has a much more intense flavor due to freshness and it could go in some recipes where celery seed is called for)

    We tried making pickles this summer and they did not turn out, tasting very good. I also made strawberry jam (without the gelatine) and it was really runny. I think it tastes good though and the kids love it. It is good on Sundaes...I definitely want to get more into canning!
