Q and A: storing food in a humid environment, canning chicken, and safe pickle recipe — 2 Comments

  1. I have been wanting to try to can meats but I have been too chicken. LOL… I’ll be looking for a sale this week and give home canning a try.

  2. S.P. I am from New Orleans and I used to dehydrate a lot of meat. You have to really be careful, because the humidity is so rough, it often messes up the seal from the vacuum sealer, and the meat seems to almost immediately start to rehydrate, and subsequently spoil. It can be done, but I would make sure you keep a close eye on it, to make sure the bags remain vacuum sealed. Although, I have to say, after Katrina, the stuff I canned and dehydrated really saved my family’s butt!!!
