Default Tuna fresh for canned?

I am going out of GB this weekend and really don't want to can all day Sunday. How much do you lose to trade for canned? Does it taste as good? I would think it does.....

not sure about the trade but you can freeze it and can later, good luck! I often trade with friends, they can and i get 25% back, not too bad considering they buy the jars and do it. Good luck

the boathouse will can tuna for you. They will only give you what you give them, so you will have to wait until the next run they do, but after talking to them, the quality of fish brought in varies considerably and you will only want your own fish anyway.

FYI Unlike washington, Oregon dosn't allow trading fresh for canned. A retail operation can only accept what you bring, and return to the same person after processing.

How long can you freeze before canning?

I have canned last years frozen left over loins (well vac bagged) for the last few years. It is probably 9 -10 months in the freezer. It is not as good as fresh canned but still better than the cat food they sell at the grocery store.

I always freeze what i'm going to can. After a long day fishing, cleaning, carking, the last thing I want to do is can. I will save all of my "to be canned" meat from several trips until the season is over (Or i'm bored on a random weekend).

Just make sure to cut off all blood meat, and anything else that could sour or ruin the meat. Then I vac pack the whole loins, and freeze.

Good luck!

Clean your fish and pack in plenty of ice with some rock salt and they will keep for a few days, can as time allows.

I usually trim the bloodline out of the loin, cut off the ends of to leave a 8" - 8 1/2" loin. That leaves me the largest part of the loin which fits perfectly into an 11" vac bag, is uniform, and ready for the grill without any additional "clean up". That also let's me get maximum use out of the vac bags. I usually seal 1 or 2 loins per bag. I put the "trim" in gallon bags, squeeze the air out, and mark the date and freeze. I save these until I'm ready to can. They save in the gallon bags easily for a month or more.

Wife wants one more question before I set up a canning line....how much do they charge to can my tuna? I think that she is nervous due to the way my fishing stuff seams to take three times as long as I think and spreads all over the house and garage. Go figure.

Next time your down go to Karlas in RB and try her smoked Tuna.

After this treat you will forget about it any other way.

I do like a little fresh BBQ'd, the wife like her canned, BUT everyone cleans the platter of Karlas smoked, no matter how big a plate I put out.

Plus the smoke & Vac last up to 1 year in fridge ( never freeze )

Fresh canned, smoked and canned, jalapeno and tuna , garlic tuna, montreal steak seasoning and tuna , spicy montreal and tuna canned, it's all good. I bring my tuna home in coolers packed in brine ice, or just salt the bagged ice you have. I don't cark the tuna untill I am going to put in a jar or vac pac, and I don't like to vacpac and freeze befor canning because it is extra work and vac bags are expensive. The premium top loins get vac pac and frozen to be eaten seared, or bbq. the rest gets put in jars and canned. Some times I cark and can for 3 or 4 days. The whole fish is fine packed in brine ice for several days. The fish are easier to cark when near frozen and the loins come out beautiful from a very cold fish near frozen fish, keep the soy and wasabi on hand you may need it while carking.
