OK, I will now confess that I am extremely confused.  The discussion has been about pressure canning, the link is to pressure canning, but there is not a can in site, only jars/bottles.  Where do cans come into the process ?

sorry, Phil: like many hobbies, there is jargon. "Canning" is the word used to describe home food preservation by using glass mason jars with 2 piece metal lids: most people don't have the budget to buy the kind of machine you'd use to seal metal cans...  ;D

Ah, so not canning but "canning".  OK, understood !  But it does seem to negate what I naïvely thought to be the primary advantage of the process — the reduced volume/weight requirements of cans w.r.t. jars.  There are still advantages, of course, such as the fact that the results can be stored at ambient temperatures for relatively long periods of time without deterioration, but if one could easily (and inexpensively) pressure-can using real "tin" cans rather than glass jars, that would be even better.  At least for those of us with limited storage space.

indeed, Phil. Metal cans would be way less weight, but glass jars have the advantage of being reusable (until they break) at home.

True, I can't deny that, but here in the UK "tin" cans are recyclable (at least in theory), so they are not necessarily use-once then bin devices ...

Sure. We have kerbside recycling pickup which specifically excludes glass.

I would imagine that metal cans would be "use once then recycle" rather than "use once, run through dishwasher, use again and again", but would be happy to be proved wrong  :)

bhamcurry agree Tin Cans are single use. ;)

I do like watching American/Canadian Homesteader videos
Mainly for Carpentry and Timber building, People living in remote wide open spaces
Canning was an obvious necessity rather than a hobby.

I do have a few Mason and Kilner Jars, but they are quite expensive in the UK.
Not cost effective for BIR curry gravy at all.

As for Tin Cans, step back in time (circa 1925 home kit)



Italian Grandma water bath method is interesting


cheers Chewy
Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol

good find, Chewy - that's boiling water bath canning right there, although her technique leaves a little to be desired  :)
