canning w pressure cooker

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi I make my dogs food and wanted to can it for when we are traveling. I can food often so I am used to doing this. My question is do I have to use salt to can it? I have canned just meat and see it doesn't require salt to preserve and is very good but my recipe has ground round, carrots, potatoes in it would the veggies require me to use the salt? Thank you I hope I am posting in the right area! Patty

canning w pressure cooker

Well I answered my own question but did want to post the answer I found it in my directions for canning in the Mirro pressure cooker directions book it says "vegetables and meat may be canned successfully with or without salt." pg 53 Patty :p

Spoiled dog :D
My wife fed a friend's cats while the friend visited China. She was a Chinese woman. Before she left she had to train her cats to eat from a bowl. She said it wasn't easy. These two cats were used to being hand-fed with chopsticks LOL talk about spoiled . . .

When you contact them, ask also about using pressure cookers for pressure canning. They will tell you that pressure cookers are not recommended for pressure canning, and they will also tell you the reasons why. I could tell you, but it would be better to hear it from them.
