Sorry Charlie Tuna but you suck!

The paterfamilias went to LA and caught some Wahoo and Tuna last weekend then brought it to my house. We decided to can it. Not very difficult and the egg heated the pressure cooker much faster than my stove top would. 

The pics tell the story.  

The last pic is a small sashimi  treat for the cooks. 

Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Wow Travis!! That's awesome. Some dad you got there bro. Hope to see him at Salado with you! :)

    How long is it good for? What type of quality will it be in once opened?
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
  • It's good as long as normal caned tuna from the grocery. We just opened one of them and it is sublime. Very flavorful and tasty. 

    I see it fitting with a gourmet plate of charcuterie, cheese and crackers. 

    I highly recommend trying it.

    So it generated that much already? Awesome! I do need to try this.

  • Yep, the we caned all three fish in the pic. The last batch is in the pressure cooker right meow. 

    Doing that much was a lot of work but if you got a few pounds, it would be simple.

    I hope you've got a lot of cats.  You just made a one year supply for them.

    If it ain't Red Snapper, it's cat food.

    That looks awesome. Since my dad lives up North all he gives me is Elk, Antelope, and Deer Jerky and Sausage.

    I need him to move down to Florida to get me some fish now.

  • That is a very cool project! I've never heard of anyone doing that before. Seems like a different/great way to keep fish.
  • Travis, Looks very cool. Is it raw tuna pressure canned or pressure cooked?

  • LS, Not sure what its called. We put the raw fish in the mason jars and cooked them in the pressure cooker for 90 min @ 15 psi.
