I have been putting up beans like crazy. We love to open a jar in the winter and cook them up with bacon. That got me thinking and that is never good.
Can I take a step out and put the bacon in before I process? Has anyone ever done this and been successful? And if so what process did you use.
My bad.....I had dried beans in mind and didn't read the post well enough. As I said, meat flavoring in canned dried beans is fine. However, I agree with Lynda that the bacon wouldn't be the same in the green beans as it would in the skillet or pan. Besides, having to pressure can the beans more than twice as long due to the meat would likely make them too mushy for your liking.
