10 min left on 6pt & 1 qt of turkey broth! Cats are thrilled with a whole lot of meat/fats off the carcass I stewed. What a mess to clean 🥴😱 makes a qt of Swanson look fantastic! :lol: :lol:

the house must have smelled wonderful! :) i love turkey soup simmering...

I’m waiting for them to bring beef home from the butcher. I’ll can a lot of stew meat and hamburger then. I need to can a bunch of potatoes too. It’s such a godsend to have canned food on the shelf when I’m ______ (too sick, in pain, exhausted, lazy, ornery, forgot to take anything out of the freezer) to cook! :lol:

So true...canned and ready! 😁 :drool not to mention actually having food. Once we grow it, raise it, preserve it and don't have to shop -- that's perfect.

I'm a seed saver but, even buying seed/plants, it's cost effective to garden. So long as the garden produces, of course 😂

The wife and I had an in depth discussion about canning for this year. We found a great deal on a Presto electric canner (should arrive today?).

She wants to make smaller batches of soup to can up. I was concerned the monster canner would be overkill for small batches. So we decided on a device with great reviews.

And of course, the local grocery store has a BOGO sale on fresh mushrooms. This may be the maiden voyage of the canner later this week.
