    Default Jarred salmon

    What will happen to jarred(canned) food if it gets below 32 degrees will it freeze and shatter the jars? I am running outa storage in the house and would like to store more in an outbuilding, will I have issues?

    I don't think that there is enough moisture in the jars to expand enough to break them. You could always send them to somebody in Kansas and have them stored for you there though.

    We have stored ours in an unheated cache for years without any problems. It will start to get mushy over time though, especially if gets over one or two winters old. If you are worried use wide moth jars they freeze liquids OK if you have the head space.

    I agree salmon is dry enough you're not going to break jars. But in your text you refer to "food", generic. Canned stuff with more liquid can and will break jars regardless of proper headspace (my experience). Regardless, it's the repeated freeze thaw cycles that are your enemy. Repeated freeze thaw cycles make salmon mushy as hiline noted, and eventually make just about anything inedible.
