Say It Is Almost Over!

I am so ready for canning season to be over! We have done 16 quarts of Salsa, 20 quarts of Tomoto Juice, 16 quarts of Veggie Soup, I don't know how many quarts of Stew tomatoes or pints of corn in the freezer.
I still have carrots to can. I have pulled all the onions and am letting them dry right now.
We still have apples to make into sauce and dehydrate, peaches and pears to can but I am So ready to be done!
Oh, but the food collecter in me just will not stop.
I found boneless, skinless Chicken Breast for $1.49 lb So, I cooked and shreaded it and now have 6-12oz. freezer bowls full of it in the freezer too.
I figure it will be awesome to pull out and make enchalada's or chicken noodle soup.
Has anyone ever put meat in bottles? How did it turn out? What do I have to do to proccess it? I would like to go buy more chicken, but I don't have that much freezer space.

Did I say something about wanting to be done canning for the year??? Maybe I am just ready for the mess of supplies to go back out to the storage room!

So, I keep reading a lot of blogs about all the canning everyone is doing. I have never canned anything in my life. I have never even witnessed anything being canned. I wouldn't even know where to begin. Is it something I can teach myself? Or do I need someone to teach me? I was thinking of looking for some books at the library about it. Maybe next year I will give it a try...or maybe I'll just save my coupons and buy in bulk from the store? The world may never know.

You have so much energy! I don't do nearly as much canning as I did when the kids were all home. In today's economy I probably should do more but I'm just not in the mood. Just think of those winter meals you'll be having. You go girl. Mimi

Trust me I am not a molly by any sense of the word!

Without out a garden I would be buying all the great case deals!
Cheaper and a lot less work!

I got tired just reading about all the canning you did! Wow! I've never canned meat. I just do jams and salsa. Oh and jalapenos.
