Canning Beef Stew


This beef stew recipe is the most popular canning recipe on my blog. It gets searched for thousands of times each year. It’s really easy to make! You don’t have to cook any of the ingredients ahead of time, just chop up all of the meat and vegetables and place in sterilized jars with beef broth and the soup cooks right in the jar. It’s an easy way to make sure that you have beef stew on hand all year round.

Canning Chili

Homemade chili is the best! It’s even better when it’s already made ahead of time and all you need to do is heat it up. This recipe takes a little prep work. Make sure to leave yourself time to soak the beans and to cook the hamburger ahead of time. It’s worth the extra work! Here’s my recipe for canning chili.


Canning Split Pea Soup


Homemade spilt pea soup is the best. For a long time I didn’t know it was possible to can it, but it is! This soup canning recipe (and bean and ham soup) are great ways to use up leftover ham after the holidays. It’s also very inexpensive to make if you already have split peas in your food storage. Here is my recipe for canning split pea soup.

Canning Bean and Ham Soup


Homemade bean and ham soup is one of my family’s favorite soup recipes. We enjoy it at any time of year. That’s why it’s so great to have it made up ahead of time and available in our food storage. I often make it after  Thanksgiving or Christmas when we have leftover ham. No need to soak the beans ahead of time for this recipe. Here is my recipe for canning bean and ham soup.

Canning Tomato Soup


When I was first looking at canning tomato soup, I saw that there was a secret ingredient–Clear Jel, a thickener used in canning (for sauces and pie fillings). It ensures you don’t have runny soup and gives your tomato soup the same consistency of store bought tomato soup. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed! Here is my recipe for canning tomato soup.
