    ~~~~~ Good side note: Add a note stating what good veggies to mix in with this also like: carrots & peas, green beans, brocollie, etc... or you can add the can of tuna to the jar it self.

    *****NOTE: If you have a Food Saver System with a large jar seal attachment you can use it to seal wide mouth jars and give them as gifts. There is also a regular size seal but it is easier to fill the wide. When filling jars I find that when doing layers that if you press/compress them you can get every thing in that is needed to get in. I find a canning muddier/press works good for me
