My First Full Canner

Turkey Noodle Soup

About 4 Cups leftover turkey, diced.
6 medium potatoes, cubed
4 large carrots, sliced
2 Cups broccoli, frozen
1 package fusili, 900g
Enough turkey stock to cover.

I heated it up to defrost the broccoli, then jarred it up.  10 pints, processing now, for 75 minutes, aiming for 10 PSI, but currently well above....

I made enough soup for another 5 or 6 jars, but that will be part of supper.  I know, I know, you're not supposed to can noodles.  But these are intended to be quick and easy lunches for Husband, so I have to give it a try.  He won't add his own noodles later.  He normally just opens a can, pours it in a bowl, and pops it in the microwave.  Gross.

It looks like I'll need to start force feeding people canned goods if I want to keep playing with my canner.  Either that, or buy more jars. 


  1. Good job, Wendy. I have been laughing, thinking how handy this might be to some people--only kills the husband. lol How many jars do you have?

  2. yummeh - turkey soup! does your husband like wild rice? i use wild rice in my turkey soup and it keeps it's texture after canning.

    and bahahahah at PracticalP and the husband-killing!

    your friend,

  3. Pp- that's funny, lol. Mean, but funny. 14. Guess I couldn't count that day.

    kymber- I don't think any of us have ever had wild rice. I always buy parboiled, which only seems to come in white. How do you cook it so it isn't all hard and seedy without a rice cooker?
