Canning meats is very easy... much easier than canning vegetables. These pints had to be pressure canned for 75 minutes at 11 pounds pressure, after 10 minutes of "exhausting" the canners. If you want to do this, and have not canned before, please be sure to consult a reliable canning guide like this one.
Canned meat will last for a long time in the jars without losing quality. It is very convenient to have in the pantry for quick meals.
