Step 3: Pressure Can

Following your manufacturer's instructions, can the carp for 90 minutes at 15 lbs pressure. I can tell you how long to can it for, and the pressure, but you need to follow your manufacturer's instructions as far as how many cans you can do, and how much water to add. 

Be careful.  I nearly went dry when I was canning, so be very careful, if you stop hearing the wobbler, you may have a problem on your hands.  You could have run out of water, or the release could be clogged, either way, remove from heat and consult your manual as to what to do next.  Remember you are working with a pressure vessel, which may blow up if not used properly. 

So be careful, it isn't worth blowing up your kitchen for a batch of canned carp.

<p>It works with other fish with small bones, I am not sure about meats. </p>
