That is good stuff. My aunt and uncle would can deer meat. Just open and heat it up put it in or on anything you want. As far as storage if un opened store it like a can good once opened put in fridge. I forgot to say pour water and juice off. It will be so tender you won't believe it.

With my extremely limited experience with home canned meats, the first suggestion would be my option, you may like it, but I sure wouldn't be expecting a Dinty Moore or Austex flavor. One of my grandmothers friends used to swap canned meat for canned fruit/veggies, the only way I could tolerate it was when it was made into some kind of casserole with lots of cheese and noodles-Lots!

I am guessing open jar...smell jar...carry jar to OUTSIDE trashcan and throw away! I don't have experience with canned meat so that is just a guess. You could save time by going out to the outside trashcan prior to opening.

Good luck!

Tagged. Heard a lot of people talking bout eating it (moose) ND/Canada for 4 years but never actually seen anyone doing it lol. The canned meat part is cool tho, Never seen that. Might be a handy skill to learn. However deep fried bacon wrapped pheasant is DELICIOUS!

It looks fine. Looks like any other deer meat that I have been around that was canned.
I like it with eggs on a breakfast taco.

Put it on a cedar plank shingle and smoke it for 14 hrs. Throw the moose out and eat the shingle.

My wife is from Michigan, and she refused to eat deer meat for a while when we first started dating. I got her to start and she said deer meat tastes different here. When I went on my first visit, her uncle wanted to make deer meat for me and she warned me that I would not like it. I had never had deer meat I wouldn't eat.......until he poured it out of a jar. That was some of the foulest crap I have ever tried to eat. I forced some down just to be nice. Never again. Did things to my lower intestines that may still be messed up.

This is always true. Further, if you can smell the moose before you open it up, you probably missed a sign or two beforehand.

Never had canned meat, but I know when my mom would can fruit and vegetables she made sure liquid was to the top of the jar. My dad would pickle fish and to the same, make sure the jar was full of brine to the top. They said it would spoil if air was left in. And there looks to be a good amount of air in those jars. Open it up and smell it, would be my guess. Let us know how it smells and if you eat it.

Liquid doesn't have to be to the top. Meat is canned in a pressure cooker which raises the temperature to 240 250 degrees F. This will kill any organisms in the airspace and as long as the seal is not broken you're OK. If the seal is broken, you will get contamination whether there is liquid to the top or not.

Or tuna fish, or Vienna sausages or can Chicken. But they will eat taco Bell, jack in the box, and McDonald's

It's amazing how many people automatically assume something is gross without ever trying it.

Canning meats is actually a common and popular process. Meats must be processed in a pressure canner

Ive had green beans with bacon from a jar and they were as fresh as the day they were picked

Canned meat seriously is legit, follow other home canning precautions. Make sure the lid doesn't pop etc.. once opened, smell it, if it's foul no good. If neither of those things then make tips and rice out of it, or stew.. or guisada, anything else you would use chunked meat for.. it's legit.. seriously legit. I also can't believe more folks haven't heard of this.
