***This Badge Bit is no longer valid, please ignore***

This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Food Prep and Preservation

For this badge bit, you will be preserving food by canning it using the Pressure Canning method. (CAUTION! Hot water is hot! Things under pressure can explode!)



To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  • You must use a pressure canner to seal the jars
  • You must preserve the amount of food equivalent to 1 quart (ie: 1 quart jar or 4 half pint jars)


  • To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
  • A before photo of all of your equipment and ingredients
  • Your recipe of choice
  • A photo of you filling the jars to the proper 'head' height
  • A photo of the jars in the pressure canner
  • A photo of your finished product! (Including a photo of the sealed lid and appropriate label)

  • Or make a video showing the above (less than 2 minutes duration).

    Pressure canning 7 quarts of rabbit bone stock.

    Fill canner with jars and 2 inches of water.

    Let steam for 10 min with lid on but no weight to release any extra air in canner.

    Add weight at 15 lbs and heat up until weight begins to rock and then prossess for 25 minutes.

    Turn off heat and let cool down until all pressure is gone before removing weight ( I let mine sit overnight).

    Remove jars and let sit in non drafty spot to finish cooling down.

    Label and store in a dry environment.

    This BB has been removed from the Sand badge and a new one for pressure canning will be put into Straw.  So this BB is now obsolete.  But Penny is, of course, grandmothered in and can use it to get her Sand badge.  The thread will now be locked to prevent further applications to a BB that is just a figment of our imagination
