Then I took my meat and put it in a large colander and poured boiling water over it to wash away any remaining fat. Just a quick pour you are not bathing it.
Once the meat has drained I placed it in sterile pint jars and poured hot broth made from beef base and boiling water over the meat to cover.
Then I removed air bubbles. Then I took a paper towel with a little vinegar water on it and wiped the rims to remove any oil on the rim and placed lids and rings on the jars and finger tightened.
Each pint jar held a little under a pound. Then I processed for 90 minutes in the pressure canner.
Remove jars and let cool for 24 hours.
They say it will last for several years.
Mine has never lasted that long.
To use you can drain the broth off and use it in another dish and use the meat or use the broth in your dish. I use this to make tater tot casserole. I make homemade mushroom soup with the broth and add it back to the burger. Add a pint of mixed vegetables and some sauteed onions and garlic. Add your tater tots to the top and you are ready to bake. Shepherds pie same way. To me this is like making your own convenience food.
Note** These jars in the picture are still hot. When they cooled there was a fine white film of fat on the top. Not very thick at all. Maybe 1/8 inch.
