I love cooked carrots. Always put extra in soups and along side a roast. YUM!

YES, banana bread needs those brown skinned bananas!! LOL Best eating bananas I've ever had were those we got fully tree ripened when we lived in Cuba. Wow, like any vine/tree ripened fruit or veggie -- just outstanding flavor.

Canned 7 pounds of corned beef. The official "experts" have not officially tested this, so I can't guarantee it's safe, so we will boil it for an additional 15 minutes when we open the cans up to eat. I gave it 100 minutes at 13 lbs pressure (we are over 4000 ft above sea level here). I used quart jars because the pint jars were a bit too small to fit a 1 lb chunk of meat and still have enough head room. I didn't use the spice packets because I was afraid the spices would give an 'off' taste after canning. Has anyone else ever canned corned beef, and did it come out ok?

I had a froze some roosters last year, and canned them up on Saturday as I clean out the freezer. Tomorrow, I am canning four large beef roasts.

I have three seasoned beef roasts in the oven on 250 right now. I put each cut in a dish with salt, pepper, and onion powder with 2 cups of water. They're covered in aluminum foil. I'm canning them this evening. I am anxious to see how they turn out.

You don't need to pre-cook them before canning, but I bet they turn out great.
I like to sear the outside of the meat before canning, but that is all. It always turns out tender.

I never cook meat through all the way, but I always hot pack meat. I think it looks better at the end, and I have heard it is better with moisture.
