We have all had those days when we don’t want to cook or we aren’t feeling well. I try to cook enormous amounts of food that freezes or cans well when I can: chicken, turkey, burgers, chicken stock, chili and anything else I can preserve well. This makes my life profoundly easier when I may not be feeling well or just don’t want to cook. Today I made pulled pork for dinner and will freeze the rest in dinner size portions. I also made chicken stock in the big stock pot since I used the last of it this week, I will can that tomorrow. Jeff made burgers out of the remaining ground venison in the freezer and cooked it to freeze. This makes me even more excited for summer when I will have the garden to can veggies for the winter. I truly hope that spring will arrive and stay so I can get started on my little garden.

What a smart idea! What are the basics to canning? I’ve always wanted to give it a whirl, but have never been taught how.
I started with water bath canning., it’s the simplest. Ball canning makes great books with excellent instructions. You can contact your local extension office usually for more help and instruction.
Thank you so much! I’ll have to look into it!
