Can I pressure can leftover Easter ham?

Asked April 10, 2020, 11:44 PM EDT

Hello, Easter is on Sunday and I’ve got a ham that will definitely provide lots of leftovers. I read that you can’t safely can cured meats. But are there any approved canning recipes that would allow me to use my leftover ham? Thanks for your help!

Hello,

Unfortunately, the prepared ham cannot be canned due to several safety concerns. Here is the resource that gives more information on this subject matter. https://www.clemson.edu/extension/food/canning/canning-tips/55home-cured-brined-corned-meats.html
