Canning Common Plantain!
Canned Common Plantain
Wash and slice plantain leaves against the grain of the leaf. There are strings in the leaf which are bothersome unless they are cut and then you will not notice them at all.
Parboil Leaves on simmer for ten minutes. Drain. It will not be soft but just wilted enough to easily place in jars.
Loosely place in jars (not pressed down). Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to each pint jar. Add boiling water to cover greens and leaving 1 inch headspace.
Pressure can 70 minutes for pints, 90 minutes for quarts at 10 lbs. Don't forget to add a little vinegar to your pot's canning water to avoid the film on the outside of the jar.
