Can I can this?

Lodi, CA(Zone 9b)

My daughter makes a dish with bacon, zucchini, tomatoes, onions, garlic, etc... We love it and make huge batches at a time. Can I safely can this with a pressure canner? How long would you process it? Would it turn to mush? Any help would be appreciated. :)

No, sorry, this should be frozen, not canned.

It's not tested, it's fatty and the zucchini collapses resulting in a very dense product, so on all counts it presents serious problems. Even if you could come up with a processing time, the long processing would probably lead to serious quality issues (i.e. zucchini-bacon mush).

That's what I thought... Thank you Carol.

But you could share her recipe with us. Lots of summer squash everywhere!

Now that's a great idea! It does sound very good.
