  •  Cheers to buying in bulk (8+ / 0-)

    I am having so much fun with my pressure canner that I'm putting up more than the tomatoes and beans I grew myself. Whole chickens are on sale, I plan to can chicken picatta and maybe marsala too, in addition to vegetable soup and plain broth as an ingredient. Red pepper jelly and probably green too on Friday when the 15 pounds of sugar get here. Last batch of tomato soup (made with chicken broth with leeks I grew myself) is not enough to can; ate some, freezing the rest. Already on the shelf: Italian tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, green tomato relish (I panicked when Hurricane Irene approached and picked everything),  pickled green beans (some "dilly", some not) and pickled leeks, which I use in recipes when chopping an onion is too much trouble.

    Better than you can buy, and much cheaper.

      My mother canned everything that wasn't nailed down when we were growing up.  We knew better than to approach the kitchen during canning season.

      I miss all that yummy stuff :(
