20 lbs hens

Hit one of my goto oaks for hens after waiting about 10 days since the last time checking. And found 6 nice hens ( about 20lbs). Was wondering if you can pickle this and can them using a water bath. Any info is appreciated! Thanks!

Re: 20 lbs hens

I sort of pickled some last year. It's a marinade of some sort... olive oil, spices and vinegar. They are still edible. Kept them unopened in a rarely used refrigerator for a year. I put them into a canning jar with lid and ring. They must have been hot enough because they were sealed.

They are a little too intense. Probably would be better after just a month or two.

I just took one of my whole frozen hens out of he freezer and put it on the dehydrator to defrost. It's a mushy mess. It sure is pretty when frozen!

I'm thinking freezing in chunks ready to throw in the skillet may be the way to go. I'm going to cook this hen tonight or tomorrow and see how it turns out. I'm glad I have a lot to experiment with.

I'm trying a roast hen powder for soups and sauces. I finished drying them last night and tonight after work I am powdering and testing. Pics will be in the recipe forum

Re: 20 lbs hens

Frank the jerky turned out great I made 3 batches of it I had to tweek the recipe to my liking if you didn't know it was a mushroom you would think it was made out of meat . a quick version of how to make mushroom jerky first clean mushrooms stems and leaflets then place in boiling water for about 10 mins drain and add to marinade I let sit overnight in it then dry in food dehydrator like you would meat jerky just keep an eye on it it goes from perfect to hard as concrete really fast.

I "HAVE TO TRY THIS" next year Mary!
Please try to remind me just before hen season starts.

As it isn't dried completely, how long does it last stored in fridge? Or do you freeze and thaw before using? I'm really interested in this process.
