Preserving Food, Canning Cheeseburger Soup

Have you ever wished for healthy canned soups to have for a quick meal? Did you know that they are very easy to make and preserve? Over the summertime when there are a lot of veggies ready I can soups. It does take a bit of an effort but I love it when I need a quick meal. Try this Cheeseburger Soup and you won’t be disappointed!

This cheeseburger soup is a FP when canned since it uses radishes instead of potatoes. I was a bit reluctant on canning with radishes but the soup taste so good! The radishes canned very well.

A quick way to brown hamburger is to do it in your Instapot. I put a frozen package of burger into my Instapot fro 15 minutes. It worked great. The ingredients are than layered into quart jars. You will need a funnel if you have small mouth jars. Since I had a lot of fresh parsley in my garden I added a small sprig of it at the top of the jar. The colors look so good together, don’t they!

This soup can not be safely water bathed to can it. The veggies are to low in acid and meat must be pressure canned. A pressure canner is one of the best investments I have made to preserve food.

Wipe the top edge of the jar with a clean paper towel. Add lids and rings. Place your pressure canner in your stove. Add 3 quarts water and 1/2 cup white vinegar. Place filled jars in the canner. Turn on the lid. Turn burner on high. Allow steam to vent for 7 minutes from pressure vent. Add pressure weight. Bring pressure to 11 psi and hold there for 90 minutes. Yo will need to keep adjusting your heat lower and lower.

pressure canning changes by altitude chart

If your altitude is higher than 2000 ft you will need to use a higher pressure.

this is a canner for of beans and carrots.

My canner holds 7 quart jars. The water only comes 3/4 of the way up the sides of the jars. Since a pressure canner cooks by steam and pressure you do not need to have you jars covered with water like a water bath canner.

Remove canner from heat. Allow to cool until pressure is down to zero or a few hours. DO NOT REMOVE PRESSURE WEIGHT. Remove jars from canner and allow to set at room temperature for 24 hours. Check seals. Remove rings and wash jars. Store in a cool place.

I have a basement sectioned off as a food pantry. It is cool and dark which keeps my canned good very well.

  1. We really like cheeseburger but are not THM. Can I replace the radishes with potatoes or wouldn’t that work to can? Would I need to can it differently?
    Thank you.

  2. I am a little confused by the amounts listed in the recipe. It says for one jar but 1 1/2 lbs of meat in one jar seems like a lot. Are all of the ingredients to be split in the 7 quart jars?
