I have canned a nice variety of food but over the years but canning meat is something I haven't done very often and then only in soups or broth.
When one of our local grocery stores ran an ad, chicken leg quarters at 50-cents a pound, I decided now was a good time to try my hand at canning meat.
After a quick internet search I learned how to d-bone a chicken leg quarter. How did I ever live without You Tube?
Here is what 20-pounds of boneless chicken leg quarters looks like.
All the bones and skin will be turned into broth.
My canning book states....do not add water to the meat.
I have never canned without adding water to my jars and was amazed at how much liquid the chicken made.
My 20-pounds of boneless meat filled 5-quart size jars; one jar didn't fill up completely. We spent $10 on the chicken which comes out to $2 per jar; plus I will have numerous jars of broth as well. I so love a good bargain.
