Canning Hot Dogs

Postby billpiece » Thu Jan 24, 2013 12:36 pm

The Wife asked me last night if we could can a Hot Dog.

The thought never occurred to me before, so I turned to the interwebs. Information seems to indicate you can and that they last a long time.

I'm curious if anyone here has ever done this, and if so, do you have any tips?

If not, I'll just give it a go and report back.

It's a meat product, and seems most meat can be home canned. Just don't get the cheap junk that turns the buns red! :ouch:

Seems easily done, adding bbq sauce, peppers, etc. to kick 'em up a notch.

This is how I can mine. Hotdogs are pretty safe and don't need to be cooked to can them (you can open a package and just chow down if you want and not get sick - we cook them because it tastes better).

Get everything sterilized - get your lids in boiling water. Open up however many new packages of hotdogs you want to can and cut them in 3 inch pieces (they seem to can better this way). Stuff them into jars. I dry pack mine - so I DON"T add any liquid. I just stuff the jars full and apply a sterile lid and ring. Then I pressure can them for 90 min @ 15 lbs for quart jars and 60 min for pint jars. Works like a charm.

PS - I am not personally guaranteeing the safety of this procedure - but from what i know about canning meats, this should be perfectly safe.

I never gave any thought to canning hot dogs. What a great idea since I am a chilli dog junkie.

Timmy, I know what you mean!! LOL That was my first thought too, but then I thought about it, and realized that hotdogs are as American as apple pie and there are a lot of people that love them. I just hope they would go for the gold and can Nathan's hot dogs!! They are the best afterall, and if you're going to can hotdogs, well......

Actually - you're both wrong (for my motives anyways ;) ).

I was just really bored AND we had a beef coming and needed to make room in the freezer. I had gotten a hold of a bunch of hotdog coupons during the summer so I got them for like .10 cents a pack. And I must have gotten $5 worth sooooooo I did donate some to the local food bank and kept the rest in the freezer. When we needed room - I stuck some in the dehydrator (now - don't get all uppity, I know exactly what hotdogs are made out of and how bad they are, but I like them anyways) for dog snacks. Dehydrated hotdogs make awesome dog snacks - they go nuts for them. And then I canned the rest, having seen it online before. I was pleased with the results - I tried to repeat this process with sausages but it didn't work out real well.

But I do think they would make a good morale booster and comfort food. I like them so it would be a real treat for me. I have the extra jars, dogs, lids and space so its not hurting anything.

Canned hot dogs are sold all over Europe. They usually are in glass containers and are expensive. They are also mushy and tasteless like large Vienna sausages...yuck! I bet those "Little Smokies" cocktail sausages would can well.

I'm intrigued! I found several YouTubers who have also canned hot dogs. I'm going to try it as soon as there is another BOGO sale at Ingles.

of course! Cut them up, heat with the beans and simmer 10 min, then fill jars leaving 1 inch head space. Process 10 lb pressure, 90 min.
