I was able to purchase the 40 pounds of ground beef from Zaycon Foods again. It’s the ONLY way I will buy my ground beef if we don’t have access to half a beef from a farm. Their beef is the best for pressure canning for long term food storage.


This was the most efficient way for me to cook a large amount of meat. In a big pot. Efficient and less messy. You pre-cook the hamburger or you will have little meat loaf’s that are hard to removed from the jar. You don’t have to pre-cook, it is just my preference.

While my meat was cooking I had the lids and rings boiling then simmering on the stove. The jars seal better with warm lids.
My jars were run through the dishwasher during this time. I do this to sanitize and warm them.


I then drain the meat to get rid of the fat….what little there was. Zaycon ground beef is 97/3.


Then I fill the pint jars with meat. Add the water. No spices or broth. Just water. This is my preference. If you want to season or use broth, you can do that instead.

Place the lids and rings and you are ready to go.

I found this handy table to use as a guide for length of time and weight of gauge.

I needed to do 75 minutes, in the canner, at 15 pounds because of our elevation.

Not bad, if you ask me.
