    The link to canning broccoli says 10 pounds pressure for 1 minute. There’s no way that 1 minute can be adequate for food safety with a non-acidic food! Sad, too, because I love broccoli and would love to find a way to home-can it safely without it becoming mush. But I don’t think it can be done; otherwise you’d be able to buy canned broccoli next to the canned corn & beans at the supermarket.

      Jeanne,

      Thanks for catching that – I think it’s a typo on their part and since I won’t ever be caught canning broccoli because I can’t stand the stuff (GRIN), I didn’t catch it since I never tried it. I know there are youtube videos canning it, and sites who do, but the USDA does dissuade home canners from preserving broccoli in this manner. It can easily be frozen, though. I will make note, but will leave a corrected link for everyone to make their own decision. Thanks!

      Must be sub-conscious because I hate the stuff LOL I seem to remember not finding many that weren’t pickled, then never going back to research (because, again, I hate the stuff). I found one and added it for you!
