My family used to raise rabbits. Mom canned but she only water bath canned. It was a long time ago - it didn't occur to them to can the rabbits.

I can venison and meat I get on sale. I actually don't can vegatables yet. I don't see the point in canning my fresh tomatoes, I just have a small backyard garden. If I get enough, I may can southern peas.

Canning meat is so easy I'm surprized more folks don't do it.

My wife now wants food caned in pints jars rather than Qts. Only the two of us at home now.
This month I canned 21 pints of green beans and 14 pints of kernels corn. No pictures.
Oh we have been eating the beans and corn fresh most every day but when I have an excess it go's into jars. I also do some drying, I'm freezing Okra most every day, love that veg.

No, taynors, I don't dry Okra. When I get enough in the freezer I pickle the small ones and cut the others for frying and other uses.
I dry tomatoes, can put 5 lbs of fresh tomatoes in a pint jar after they are dried.
I do jerky now and then, mostly with hamburger, must try some rabbits.

margocstn, my mom canned in a water bath also, don't know how long she processed the chicken, In a pressure canner I go for 90 min at 10 lbs (about a beer and a half).
We have a glass top stove in the house (can't use large pots on it) so I do my canning in the garage and under the car port with a propane two burner cook top.

Keep on Canning, freezing and drying.
