    So I have done the canned salmon and the smoked canned salmon but now I would like to vary it a bit...

    Anyone have any great sucess with spices etc??

    I am thinking of adding curry powder to the jars???

    A tablespoon of Brandy to each jar adds a unique richness to the dish.

    No need to use the expensive brands.

    A clove of garlic or a teaspoon of tomatoe paste adds some different flavour to the fish.

    I like to put about a half a cup of Pace (or your favorite brand) medium salsa into my pint jars. In a few of them I will add a half a jalapeno for a little extra kick.

    Another good one is to add some dijon mustard in with my water 4 tablespoons does very well.

    One of the things I do to avoid the dreaded dryness of home canned salmon is to add a piece of salmon belly to each jar.

    Fill the dam tub!

    What 'islandgirl' said above, adding curry powder to the can is really super!

    Also try adding a piece of smoked salmon to the can. The smoked salmon flavor permeates through all the meat.

    A few drops of this is all you need.

    Ok, I'll bite on this. If you plan to smoke salmon for the can, then just use a light smoke, like one pan or a few pucks, whatever. Then add 1 Tbsp. of Grand Marnier to each jar before sealing. I`m sure you`ll like it.;) eman

    I just bought some of the Liquid smoke and want to add to my canned salmon. I am using the small jars (250 ml). So how much is a "few drops"?

    We ain't makin gun barrels here!! 2 drops -more if you like it very smokey but be sure to add only a very little amount-it is incredibly strong, Write down on the box how much you used for reference next time. Much better product than light smoking and then canning. Dogbreath may give you a different answer but saw you were writing at 3:30 am-figured you had to have a burr under your saddle and wanted to do some.

    spring fever,
    Thanks, for the quick response. You may be right, I usually sleep right through. I have a bunch that needs to be done. At least now I know where to start.
