I got a 22 qt. Mirro pressure canner for Christmas. It holds seven qt. jars. I followed the instructions that came with it and canned 7 jars of stew meat off of a buck my wife killed. I waited over two weeks to open a jar. Today I opened one and poured it in the pot along with a bag of frozen vegetables, a can of mushroom soup and a can of stewed tomatoes, covered it with water and seasoned it with Tony C's, brought it to a boil and put the top on and simmered for 45 minutes. It was without a doubt the best stew I have ever cooked and I have been cooking them for many years. It sold me on canned deer meat. Yall ought to try it.
