Home Canned Chili

Having Canned Chili on hand is nice for those times when you want a quick meal. Make a big batch once and you have several meals that are just heat and eat.

Some jars of chili that can be heated in a small crock pot in a dorm room are also a nice gift for a college student who is missing Mom's cooking.

Although tomatoes are somewhat acidic, the overall PH of chili is high enough that it must be processed in a pressure canner.


Fill hot jars leaving 1 inch headspace. Add lids and process in a pressure canner at 10 pounds pressure. Process pints for 75 minutes or quarts for 90 minutes. For altitudes over 1000 feet use 15 pounds pressure.

  8. Question from a canning newbie! Hi, I just found your website. What a great site! I have a chili recipe which I love and would like to can it. This post didn't give a recipe so I'm assuming I would use my own recipe and pressure can it. Is this correct? I sure would appreciate your opinion. thanks!
