Heather it made a pretty broth high in collagen. I will use chicken wings again to make broth, hopefully they will be on sale. I have 8 cups of broth left over and had hoped to can today but I woke to MS fatigue so I will either do it tomorrow or freeze the broth. For me there is always a plan "B".

April, welcome to the world of canning! I have never made jam, since we don't use it, but I admit I am intimidated by pectin. LOL.
Sara, allegedly chicken feet make the best broth, but every time I get some I just feed to my dogs, as we do a mostly raw diet and they adore them. All of my broth is made from leftover carcasses. I know it's not as good, but it works. I may have to try the feet sometime. They are relatively cheap.
So yesterday I dry pack canned 14 quarts of potatoes. IGA had 5 lb bags for 99 cents and 4 bags was almost a perfect fit; I had enough leftover for dinner last night and tonight. I'm attaching 2 photos of the before and after. I know potatoes store OK, but I love having these as shelf stable, and like I said, they make the best fries.

You can get chicken feet at a good butcher, chicken processor or nice specialty grocer. We have an organic farmer that sells hers also.

Lisa your potatoes look great. I have seen some real failures on facebook lately, so I wonder what people do sometimes. Sara I hope your feeling better today. I make broth from old hens. I love canning the meat too, turns out so tender in the pressure cooker. April enjoy your canned goodies.

Thanks Michelle, I am feeling better today. Have mushroom broth on the stove to can 3 pints of mushroom broth along with 4 pints of chicken broth. I will can for 30 min since vegetable broth cans for 30 min and chicken broth for 20 min. When mixing canning times always go with the longer time.

I am doing the canning happy dance cause all jars sealed and for the first time in my canning career I didn't have any broth left over for either of the broths.

I'd say you had an amazing canning day Sara!! That's awesome.

Lisa - did all those jars fit into your canner at one time? If so I need one of those!!!! Mine only holds 7 and with having to milk the cows twice a day sometimes it's a real struggle to get everything done.

Sara, love the ping, ping, ping or in the case of the Superb lids, thunk, thunk, thunk.
Yes Heather, it holds 14 quarts, 16 pints. Double stacked. It is an All American canner. Pretty heavy, and an investment, but luckily I got mine several years ago, before prices went through the roof.

Lisa, got a question about your potatoes. How long to process a pint?
I cook for one and can for one so pints are my limit except for occasional 24 oz.

Lisa, thanks for taking the time to look it up for me. I've never canned quarts, always been a small batch canner.

Yesterday I put up 4 pints of black-eyed peas and 3 pints pintos. One of the pintos did not seal.

Today I put up 7 pints of corncob broth and all sealed.

For what do you use the corn cob broth?

Has anyone experience with canning on a glass top stove. Wondering if it difficult to keep the temperature the same since the burner heat up and then go down and repeat.

Denise before I got my gas stove I cooked on a glass top stove but did not can on it. That's why I used to can in my Yellow Rose Cottage. Glass top stoves have a history of cracking under the weight and heat of a canner.

Denise I use corncob broth in all kinds of soups. I can't eat corn but I like the taste of corn in soups. My favorite soups to use it in are veg, bean, and potato.

The first time I made it I added onions and carrots but found I did not like it much. Now I only use the cobs, kosher salt, and nonchlorine water.

Canning Fail?
So I posted my dry pack potatoes a bit further up in this thread. This is my third time doing these, and they have always sealed fine. Well, all 14 quarts sealed, but the last 2 days, I have heard a pop, and 3 of the jars have the button popped up, but seal is still intact. This is typically a sign of a lack of vacuum. I'm curious if they were the jars that were on the second level. I'm trying to remember if I had the jars stacked when I've done them the other 2 times. Anyway, very frustrating, and likely best not to eat. Arghh!

Lisa, I am clueless on what happened to the three jars that the button popped up. Like you I always err on the side of caution and trash iffy jars.

Not canning today, going to sister's house for lunch from Dairy Queen, once in a while I just got to have a taste of fast food.

Sara - you deserve a break! Enjoy your lunch and time with your sister.

Denise - My mother in law has a glass top stove and we can on it with no trouble (water bath and pressure canning). We were nervous because we heard they crack but she knew of others that do it so we tried it. We've been doing it for a few years now. I don't notice any difference with the pressure than when I can on my stove, but mine's electric not gas so I think they're the same (on and off heat).

Lisa - how frustrating! I don't know what causes it but I've had some jars that popped up but seemed to be sealed during storage. I'm always nervous and don't eat them. I wondered if it was from temperature fluctuation or even changes in air pressure during storms that caused it since I don't have AC or a basement to store my jars in.

Denise, here's my recipe for 7 pints of corncob broth.

6 to 8 ears of corn - depends on size of ears of corn
2 1/2 qts non chlorine water
1 tsp Kosher salt - optional

Husk the corn
Wash & dry off the corn
Take corn off the cob

Put cobs, water, and salt if using it into large stainless-steel pot. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer; cook for 1 hour.

Take cobs out and strain the broth.

Wipe out the cooking pot and return broth to it. Bring to a boil and ladle into warm pint jars. Proceed with normal canning procedures.
Pressure can for 30 minutes.

Because I deal with MS fatigue I prep the corncobs, make the broth, and put in fridge to can the next day.

Today I am ordering produce to make vegetable broth. Using Ball Blue Book recipe. If I get the vegetables prepped today and broth made I hope to put it up tomorrow morning.

I also ordered bone-in beef shank for beef broth. Will make and can it later this week.
