Starting with #3.

3. Meatloaf

To be perfectly honest, this one kinda scares me. I’m not quite convinced that the center of the jar will get heated adequately in such a dense product. However, there are people who have been canning meatloaf for decades and have lived to tell the tale. The maker of this video pokes a hole down into the center of the meat to help it heat through better. It also looks like there would be quite a lot of grease in the jars, since it isn’t cooked beforehand and drained. Regardless, it’s an interesting idea.

22 Strange Things To Can4. Hamburger patties

In this article, Jackie Clay explains canning hamburger patties,

“Now you can make hamburger patties, using very low fat hamburger, lightly brown them, then pack them into widemouthed jars and process them with little or no liquid. But when you take them out to use them, the texture is not like that of a hamburger, but more like meatloaf. It is a smoother, more compact texture that some people don’t like in a hamburger bun. It depends on your family’s taste. I do use this method, but when I take the meat out, I arrange it on cookie sheets, put some catsup or barbecue sauce on it, diced onions and slices of green pepper and bake it. You now have little “personal sized” meatloaves that you can then slip onto a bun. “

To keep the patties from sticking together, you can put a piece of parchment paper between each layer to keep the patties from touching. You’ll want to pack them in wide mouth quart jars. Process for 90 min. at 10 lbs pressure.

There’s nothing really strange about meatballs in and of themselves, but people are often surprised that you can can them. Home canned meatballs are a delicious addition to your home pantry. Use them to top your favorite home canned spaghetti sauce, make meatball subs, enjoy them on a bed of steaming rice… so many possibilities!

7. Flower Jellies

I wouldn’t call flower jellies strange, but definitely a unique idea. Honeysuckle is my family’s personal favorite foraged blossom jelly. I love the idea of going outside, picking a basket of edible flowers and turning them into a delicious confection. It’s a resourceful and frugal way to make jelly when fruit isn’t accessible.
