Q & A: How Do You Can Mushrooms?

This is a question I received from more than one person last week, here's the tutorial I promised ...

The recipe can be found in Growing and Canning Your Own Food by Jackie Clay and in the Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving.

I purchased these mushrooms for $.79/box at Aldi's last week.

I placed pint jars in the oven to sterilize while I prepared the mushrooms. 

The mushrooms are in the sink ready for washing.  I washed them one by one to make sure that I got all the dirt off of them.

Put them in a big pot and cover them with water. Bring to a boil and boil 5 minutes.

Drain and pack in pints or half-pint jars only. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to each pint or 1/4 teaspoon salt to half-pints.  Fill each jar with hot water. Remove air bubbles.  Clean rim of tops of jars, add lid and ring.

Process half pints and pints for 45 minutes at 10 pounds pressure.
