Dry Pack Canning Supplies

I know there is some interest in dry pack canning and where to get the needed supplies.  The canning machines are fairly available.  However, they are not cheap.  Depending on the model, they can cost between 600 to 1500 dollars.

Sources of supply

Embarcadero Home Cannery 510-535-2311, website http://www.ehcan.com/CanSealers.html.  I have dealt with them in the past to get extra parts and have found them to be reliable.

The electric canner  that I was using to can the rice is from Gering & Son, Nampa Idaho, 208 466-9003 website http://www.geringandson.com/canner.php.  This is a good machine and has proved to be very reliable.  Here is a link to a list of companies that they say will sell you small orders of cans http://www.geringandson.com/doc/suppliers.pdf Canning Pantry, website

Here are two companies that sell the All American Can Sealers; I have not dealt with either of them.

Canning Pantry, website  http://www.canningpantry.com/all-american-can-sealers.html  I have a All American Senior Flywheel Can Sealer – 1502 which is over 30 years old and still works well.

Another company is homestead products, website http://www.homestead-products.com/can-sealers.htm.

All of these can sealer can be used for canning wet pack products in metal cans.  I have a friend who cans his own meat.  This is something that I have not tried yet.   I will try to get him to write a post on this subject.

Because of my proximity to an LDS Cannery, I purchase my cans there. You can check the website  http://bit.ly/fXEv5H to find the one nearest to you.

    I have heard that each brand of machine must be used with cans made for that machine. Is this true?

    I don’t believe it to be true, every can I have tried in mine worked fine.

    We found an old Burpee can sealer with all the parts in a barn on my in-laws property but there are no instructions. I have been unable to find any information on this can sealer. Are you familiar with this brand or know where I can find information? The can sealer is in very good condition. Thank you for your valuable website.

    Re- you can NOT use dry-pack canning to wet pack products. There would be a critical other step involved. The dry-pack canners do NOT process foods. Dry pack canners ONLY seal the can. Meats and many other foods have to be thoroughly processed BEFORE placing in a can or jar and sealed- preferably under pressure to destroy the botulinum spores so that you don’t kill yourself and or your family. I have been canning with a pressure canner for well over 44 years, and have been dry-pack caning for over 25 years. PLEASE, research very well before you do can foods and consume them. Your local extension agent will also be a very valuable resource for you.

      Yes there is another step involved, but you use the same canners and cans as for dry pack. The cans have to properly processed after they are sealed.

    I Have been wet canning and dry canning for a couple of years now but I would be interested in the steps to wet can in metal cans verses glass jars. Would it be possible to get the steps published here?

    My husband and I are serving a mission in Sri Lanka. The people here would love to preserve rice. It is very hot and very humid here. The supplies are limited. Is there any way we can preserve rice in these circumstances? Thank you very much.
