Fat on top of canned ground beef
Ok, I canned the ground buffalo (I cooked it, took as much fat out as I could and put boiling water in as the juice. It has been on the counter for 3 hours and now there is fat on the top of the beef in the jars. Is this ok? It looks like they all sealed all right.
The only effect of too much fat is it may give the meat a strong flavor- which you will find out when you use it Remember, for safety sake, all home-canned meats should be boiled for 15 minutes before eating.
