Canning venison in 1/2 pint jars?
« on: October 19, 2017, 11:16:00 AM »
Hi Guys, I normally can venison in pint jars, using a Presto pressure canner.  The recipe calls for 11 pounds of pressure (at my elevation) for 75 minutes.  But Presto doesn't have any info for using 1/2 pint jars.  Someone online said they have success using the same amount of time that they use for pint jars, but I'd like to be more precise if I can.  Do any of you can meat in half pints?  If so, how long do you leave them at pressure? Thanks!

I finally found the answer to  my own question.  So, I thought I'd share it here for any canners who may be interested...Any jar smaller than a pint size, processes for the same amount of time as a pint size jar.
