Good Canning Recipes?

So, I've been on this food storage kick the last few months, and I'm really excited to start canning food. I actually canned taco sauce today! I'll put the recipe at the bottom. Anyways, I was wondering what are your favorite canning recipes? I would love to have a bigger collection of great things to can. I'm planning on canning some of Carl's elk that he shot last fall. I've done chicken, and it's amazingly simple and handy to have on hand, the only problem was that it was gone too fast, and I have to do it again. Here's my list of things I want to can:
-Potatoes
-Sweet and sour sauce
-Pork
-Sausage
-Pizza sauce
-Hamburger
-Cheese
-Butter
-Syrups
-Applesauce
-Elk stew
-Fruits
-Veggies
-Salsa
Anyone want to come help me can??? If you have done any of the above, or have a good recipe, PLEASE let me know!
Here's the taco sauce recipe if anyone is interested. I found it on www.homecanning.com
5 C. water
3 C. tomato paste - I used 4 6oz cans
1 C. cider vinegar
1/2 C. corn syrup
2 T. chili powder
1 T. salt
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. hot pepper sauce
For instructions, follow link.
I got 6 pints out of this, but they weren't full - the recipe says 6 half pints, but I got way more than that.
Happy canning everyone!
