What can I use if I don't have a pressure canner?

Without a canner you are limited to canning high-acid foods. Botulism spores don't die at 212F, the boiling point of water. A pressure canner boiling water at 15PSI raises the boiling point to 250F or so which will kill the spores. As use2199 said they will involve boiling the jars for a while to kill things.

Can you can meat without a pressure canner?

Canning meat doesn't require a pressure canner — it's the sterilization of meat that requires a pressure canner. Canned meat should never be sterilized using any other method than a pressure canner because other methods cannot be relied upon to kill invisible, odorless and tasteless botulism spores.

Place the lid on top, and screw the rings in place. Add a rack or kitchen towel to the bottom of your stock pot to prevent jars rattling. Place still warm jars in the heating water. Submerge the jars entirely with water 2-3″ above the lids and bring to a boil.

What's the difference from chicken stock and chicken broth?

A: Chicken stock tends to be made more from bony parts, whereas chicken broth is made more out of meat. Chicken stock tends to have a fuller mouth feel and richer flavor, due to the gelatin released by long-simmering bones. Canned low-sodium chicken broth is the busy home-cook's best friend.

How much water do you put in a pressure canner?

In general, 3 inches of hot water into the canner. Too much water is unlikely to cause harm, but too little could boil dry and that would be a major problem. To prevent water stains on jars, add 2 tablespoons white vinegar to water in canner. Always use canning rack.

How long does canned stock last?

The lids are vacuum sealed on, and the rings are no longer necessary. Wipe down the jars to clean off any spilled stock, and store them in a cool dark place. Ball canning says they'll keep for at least 18 months. If the seal is not broken, they should be good for years.

Can you over process canning?

Over-tightening bands can prevent air from venting out of the jars, resulting in buckled lids or seal failure. After processing, bands may appear to have loosened. You can reuse the jar itself and even the bands, but you can never reuse the Mason jar lid—for canning, that is.

Is freezing better than canning?

Safe freezing is easier than safe canning
Granted, if you didn't blanch the vegetable first, peel, seed and core it, etc, the quality of what comes out of the freezer might not be the greatest, but it won't kill anyone.
