Pressure Canning Summer Vegetable Soup

This summer vegetable soup is an ideal item to can up and have in your pantry during the winter when fresh summer vegetables just aren’t available. This is really one of those make-it-up-to-your-preferences type soup, but here’s what I used (per jar):

Vegetable Soup INGREDIENTS

  • chopped ham (1/4 cup)
  • baby frozen lima beans (2 Tbsp.)
  • green beans (1/4 cup)
  • corn (1/4 cup)
  • chopped carrots (2 Tbsp.)
  • frozen okra (3 pieces)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  • chicken broth (or ham broth if you have been able to boil a ham bone)
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar*
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar*
  • Sugar is optional, but it is good to use if the ham you are using isn’t very sweet.


Process for 75 minutes at the correct pressure (PSI) for your altitude. Visit the National Center for Home Food Preservation (canning) for more information.
