- Complexity: easy
Delicious homemade soup recipe and instructions for canning the soup.
Step by Step Directions
Mix all above ingredients in a stock pot until soup is at a boil. Prepare jars and lids. Ladle hot soup into hot jars leaving 1" headspace. Make sure to remove all air bubbles from the jars. Wipe the rims and put on lids and rings. Tighten finger tight. Prepare pressure canner based on instructions. Place jars into canner and process according to the instruction in the “Pressure Canning” sections below. Make sure to maintain pressure the entire time.
Pressure canning either of the stocks for sea level to 1000ft. using a weighted gauge is:
Style of Pack
0 - 1,000 ft
Pressure canning either of the stocks for sea level to 2000ft. using a dial gauge is:
Style of Pack
0 - 2,000 ft
If you are at an altitude of higher than 2000 ft., refer to your canning guide for processing times and pounds of pressure required for safe canning.
When complete, make sure the pressure returns to zero before opening canner. If you have a lid lock you will want to wait till the lock drops. Wait two minutes longer and remove the weighted gauge or pressure regulator. Remove canner lid. Wait 10 minutes then remove jars and place on dishtowel in a place that they will sit overnight to cool. Do not touch or move them till the next morning.
Sealing: Some time in the next hour your jars will be making a "pinging" or "popping" noise. That is the glass cooling and the reaction of the lids being sucked into the jar for proper sealing. Some recipes may take overnight to seal. Check your lids and reprocess any jars that did not seal. Remove rings for storage.
