"I posted photos of my hornworms earlier this week, with a note that I read online that hornworms glow at night with a blacklight, like scorpions, if this would make your hunt for them easier and more successful."

 I have done a little research into saving homemade chicken broth and the people that I know freeze the broth. I was thinking of canning the broth and everything that I have read online says to use a pressure canner. Does anyone know a way to can the chicken broth without useing a pressure canner or is that the only method since it's a meat product?See More
