Quality Ingredients:

  • Start with high-quality, fresh ingredients for the best flavor. Use a mix of chicken bones, vegetables, and seasonings.

Use a Pressure Canner:

  • When canning low-acid foods like chicken broth, use a pressure canner. This ensures that the broth reaches the necessary temperature for safe preservation.

Follow Guidelines:

  • Adhere to approved canning guidelines and processing times. These guidelines are designed to ensure the safety and longevity of your canned goods.

Proper Headspace:

  • Leave the recommended headspace in the jars. This allows for expansion during processing and helps create a proper seal.

Sterilize Jars:

  • Thoroughly clean and sterilize your canning jars before use. This prevents contamination and helps maintain the quality of the broth.

Hot Pack Method:

  • Use the hot pack method, where you fill jars with hot broth. This minimizes the temperature difference between the hot broth and the hot jars, reducing the risk of jar breakage.

Wipe Jar Rims:

  • Before placing lids on jars, wipe the rims with a clean, damp cloth. This ensures a clean surface for proper sealing.

Check Seal Quality:

  • After processing, check the seals by pressing down on the center of the lids. A sealed lid should not pop back. Any unsealed jars should be refrigerated and used promptly.

Label Jars Clearly:

  • Label each jar with the date and contents. This helps you keep track of freshness and ensures you use the oldest broth first.

Storage Conditions:

  • Store the canned broth in a cool, dark place. Avoid temperature fluctuations, as this can affect the quality and safety of the canned goods.

Test Your Pressure Canner:

  • Regularly check the gauge of your pressure canner for accuracy. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for calibration.

Experiment with Flavors:

  • Don't hesitate to experiment with herbs and spices to customize the flavor of your chicken broth. Just ensure that any additions are safe for canning.
