  • Salt-Pepper and a good amount of dried crumbled basil.

Put your lamb and onion in your pot at med heat with a touch of oil to keep from sticking and brown the meat/cook the onion till clear, then add your broth and the rest of the list, simmer for ten min if you are pressure canning, then jar up into your clean hot jars, and into your pressure canner in either pints or quarts, as you are going with your longest ingredent, in this case the lamb stew meat, you will follow your canning guide on how long that is in your area, it changes depending on your sea level and what kind of pressure canner you have etc.

For the dinner, continue simmering the stew till it cooks down and thick’n up all on its own, Here’s what it will look like 🙂 Serve  with fresh bread, or make some dumplings to go with, or just lick the bowl LOL

  1. Now that’s one good thing about the weather getting colder – it’s stew and dumpling time again! 😀

    • Hi C.D.
      Yup, got to love the stew and soups, I made a pot and canned up half again, it was a veggie/barley soup, boy did it turn out good, I know you would not like the mushrooms in it but I have trying to figure out how little barley to use considering that it swells, have you or any of the others does pressure canning of barley soup. So far so good, I just use about half what I would do for a typical soup and have been pleased with the end results to date.
