Canning Upside Down

When canning, I fill my jars up, clean their tops and cap them. Then I turn them upside down in the water bath canner I have. I process tomatoes and squash or Hobo Stew (which is left overs from the week cooked down and placed into a jar) for 50 minutes. I turn the heat off and do not touch the jars until the water is cooled. At that time, I pull the upside down quart or pint jars right side up and wipe them off. Normally they are all already sealed and I can place the jars in the cabinet right away.

Does the hobo stew contain meat? It only takes 50 minutes to can? I thought meat would take longer. I never thought about canning leftovers. Can you give more information? Thanks so much.

I have seen this done many times. I am wondering if green beans ect. can also be canned this way?

Do you bring the water to a boil first?

Green beans must be pressure canned; as long as you use a pressure cooker, I don't think it matters which direction they are oriented during the bath.
