We are getting going on processing out a goodly amount (several hundred pounds over the next while) of beef, pork and rabbit into jars, not to happy to have to do it hot pack method but just do not have room or time to thaw the meat to cold pack it.. So we are cooking it off and hot packing it.. I am willing to do that with burger and beef as there is a number of dishes that it will work with but will not be doing that with the rabbit or the stew meats. Raw pack gives a different outcome over hot pack and I prefer it.
Here is one pressure canner full from yesterday all washed and boxed up ready to head down to the cellar.. Which when its fully loaded looks a lot like this..
but right now.. its about half empty.. to be fair it is the middle of winter and hubby froze a lot of stuff I normally can but to be honest, its looking a little bare down there..
We need to focus on our gardens this year and get things put away!
What are you doing this fine sunday in the hard cold part of winter!
