Aunties Canned Trout
By JoSele Swopes JODIE57
I got this recipe from my Aunt...Forgot I had it...I found it on the back of another recipe I have....It is a really good recipe...We always used to use the trout to make Trout Patties, Trout Loaf, or salads and many other dishes....
Janet got "Chocolate Covered Cherry Mice"
You observe situations before diving in, choosing words and actions wisely. You're the loyal friend and...TAKE THE QUIZ and find out what Halloween treat you are!
Scale; gut; cut off heads and tails and fins. You can can in pints or quarts.
A pint jar will hold around 2 1/2 cleaned fish[8" to 10"].
A quart will hold 4 1/2 +-.
Yield--- pints= about 6/8 fish cakes, and a quart 12 to 15, depending on how big you make them.
Quart jars- 1 teaspoon salt, then pack the cooker.
The next size down is the 16 quart cooker[I think] and will hold 7 quarts or 7 or 8 pints.
When the pressure gets to 10 pounds cut heat so the jiggler jiggles 2 to 3 times a minute. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Take off of fire and let pressure reduce on its own. Remove lid and jars, then tighten one more time. And keep your fingers off of the lids. I repeat, Put your hands in your pocket. You'll hear them sea, they will pop when they seal..
If there are any that do not seal just put in the refrigerator and use them first...

JoSele - I live in Washington and my husband is the Great White Hunter/Fisherman... you know the type right? This means: I currently have over 45# of salmon in my freezer. Even though I use a foodsaver, you can only freeze salmon for so long before it goes icky. And, to be honest, you just cant eat salmon steak every single night. So I was thinking I could can a bunch of it... I make a wicked salmon patty and salmon loaf and its WAY easier to make it from canned salmon than it it from frozen raw salmon... you think this recipe would work the same for salmon?
I have a pressure cooker, I have to admit I have never used it... my grandmother warned me so many times growing up about the possiblility of them exploding and all kinds of crazy stuff that when my mom gave me hers it went into the pantry on a shelf and its been collecting dust since then... but sooner or later I HAVE to try right... or all this salmon will go bad... what d'ya think?
