    Instructions




    1. Prepare the Salmon



      • 1


        Clean"" the fish by removing the head, tail, fins and entrails and washing the fish to remove any trace of blood.





      • 2


        Remove the skin and debone the salmon, if desired. The canning process will soften the bones, much like what is found in store-bought canned salmon.

      • 3


        Cut the fish in 3- to 4-inch chunks.






      Prepare the Canning Equipment



      • 4


        Fill the pressure canner with 3 inches of water. If the manual that came with the canner calls for more or less water, follow the manufacturer's instructions.





      • 5


        Wash the jars in hot soapy water and rinse thoroughly. You can also use the dishwasher to clean the jars.





      • 6


        Place lids in a small saucepan and cover with water. Boil the lids for five minutes and turn off the heat. This softens the sealing compound, helping to ensure a good seal on the final product.






      Jar the Fish



      • 7


        Pack the salmon chunks tightly into the jars.





      • 8


        Add 1/2 tsp. salt per pint or 1 tsp. per quart jar, if desired.





      • 9


        Insert a rubber spatula into each jar and press against the fish to remove any air bubbles.





      • 10


        Center a lid on each jar and screw on a canning ring. Tighten the ring to just tight; do not force the lid tighter.






      Canning the Salmon



      • 11


        Place the jars into the canner. If you have more jars than the canner will hold, refrigerate the extras and do them in a separate batch.





      • 12


        Place the lid on the canner and tighten it down. Some pressure canners have lids that twist into the lock position, others have screw-down lids.





      • 13


        Place the canner over the stove eye and heat over medium high heat until steam begins to escape"" through the vent.





      • 14


        Allow the canner to vent for 10 minutes.





      • 15


        Close the vent and pressure can the salmon at 15 pounds pressure for 100 minutes.





      • 16


        Remove the canner from the heat and allow it to cool to zero pressure.





      • 17


        Remove the lid and remove the jars using the tongs. Place the jars on a wire rack or dish towels to cool.





      • 18


        Check to make sure each jar has sealed after it is cool. The center of the jar lid should be pressed down.
