Remember Y2K preparations? I canned several items (spaghetti sauce, Chicken ala King, hamburgers, meatloaf, vegetable soup/stew, even banana bread). After 2000 came and went without incident, I began to use the canned items. The biggest thing I discovered was next time use very little, or preferably, use no seasoning in the canned item. Oregano becomes very pronounced (still edible, but not the flavor I normally like in spaghetti sauce. Black pepper intensifies in the canning process as well. Good luck in your canning endeavors!
