How to Can Bacon

How to Can BaconBacon is one of those items you just cannot replace – While you can buy canned bacon it costs an arm and a leg, so when I started hearing about home canned bacon I just had to try it.

The way we are going to use today is for ends and pieces, however over at Rural Revolution they have an in depth post on canning whole bacon strips.

Bacon end pieces are a lot cheaper, and since canned bacon won’t get crispy, I did not want to “waste” strips.  This bacon is perfect for flavoring beans or greens.

Basically it’s pretty simple, divide your end pieces, stuff them raw into your canning jars (bacon is packed both dry and raw) then process your jars at 10 pounds for 90 minutes.
