Let's Talk ... About Re-Canning

Re-canning, for the purpose of this post, is when you purchase items in #10 size cans or other large containers and re-can them.

I've done it with great success!

Here are a few things that can be re-canned to give you an idea, there are many others:

black olives (follow canning instructions as if you were canning them for the first time.)

tomatoes  (follow canning instructions as if you were canning them for the first time.)

green beans (follow canning instructions as if you were canning them for the first time.)

ketchup (follow canning instructions as if you were canning them for the first time.)

tomato sauce  (follow canning instructions as if you were canning them for the first time.)

mushroom pieces (follow canning instructions as if you were canning them for the first time.)

No the black olives and green beans are not mush, nor are the mushrooms.

Why would you want to re-can?  What are the advantages?

Many times #10 size cans or other large containers of an item are cheaper.

Maybe your garden didn't produce all you needed and using this method to finish stocking your pantry will meet your needs.

If you can't use it all, it's a way to keep it from going to waste.

Here are some posts that talk about re-canning (be sure to read the comments as well):

  1. I have done this with #10 cans of jellies successfully! I got the cans on a special sale for $2 for a #10 can so I re-canned them into pint jars so that we wouldn't be eating a single flavor of jelly for months!!!! Lol!!

  3. Great idea. I've thought of this myself. Never had the option of doing. I don't have a canner and no experience. I do use my freezer though. Thanks for this great informative post!
