Here’s one method for canning tuna

There are many canning techniques available in cookbooks or on-line, but here’s one Chef Devon Morgante suggested:

• Clean tuna and cut into big chunks.

• Put a teaspoon or two of olive oil into the bottom of a sanitized jar.

• Then put the tuna in the jar with a little water and salt. Leave half an inch from from the top.

• You could also experiment by sticking a garlic clove, jalapeno, hot sauce, rosemary or cracked pepper in with the tuna.

• Wipe the rim off good and place the lid and ring on loosely.

• Put jar(s) into a pressure cooker with an inch and a half of water on the bottom. Follow the cooker’s instruction, but a general rule is to heat it on high until the pressure gauge reaches 10 pounds for about 90 minutes. Then turn off the heat and let the cooker sit for about 30 minutes and wait for all the pressure to be gone.

• Remove the jar(s) from the pressure cooker and wait to hear the ping of the lid sealing shut (you shouldn’t be able to press down the lid’s dimple). This could take from a few minutes to 24 hours.

If for some reason the jar doesn’t seal on its own, it has a shelf life of about a week.

A Gamer’s Retreat

From WWII battlefields to distant future, locals enjoying tabletop games

Ray Cardy sets up his American forces before battle with the Germans in France at A Gamer’s Retreat on I Street. Cardy is playing the tabletop game Flames of War, which acts out WWII battles. The Daily Triplicate/Bryant Anderson
“You don’t have any artillery, do you?” asks Ray Cardy, who will soon be proven wrong.

“I got 88s,” Ira Clements responds.

It’s June 1944 and the U.S. military has successfully landed in Normandy, France, and is advancing on the Germans, being commanded by Clements.

Cardy looks down at his army of miniature tanks posed for attack amidst the green trees and rolling hills of coastal France. He had just rolled his die and has to decide what his next move will be.

“That makes a difference on where I put my tanks,” Cardy says about the fact that Clements has 88mm anti-tank artillery. “If all my tanks are close together, he can take out more models.”

On the next table over, Joshua Wells and Colin Ramsey live in the year 40,000, when alien races are battling for control of the universe.

Just a typical day at A Gamer’s Retreat.
