09-01-2013 09:59 AM by MsDebbieP | 0 comments »

Sept 1/13 We had a family get-together Friday night and I made some pulled pork for the bbq. I made lots, we ate lots, and I still had lots left over. So, today I canned it …. 1. heated it up2. put it in sterilized jars3. put it in the pressure canner (and followed the directions of the canner) cooking it at 10psi for 70 minutes. I now have 12 half-pint jars of pulled pork ready for those lazy days of winter when I don’t want to cook. The jars hold just enough pork for...

Preserving Foods #22: Turkey Soup

12-27-2012 11:13 AM by MsDebbieP | 3 comments »

Dec 27/12 One of our local grocery stores has “turkey bucks” throughout the fall—for every so many dollars you spend on groceries you receive a $1 coupon towards a turkey at Christmas time. Between my Mom and I, I saved $10 on a $30 turkey. Yesterday, Boxing Day, (the Day after Christmas), I roasted the turkey and removed what I meat I could from the bones. I put the bones into a large stock pot of water and brought it up to a low boil. I added a few small on...

Preserving Foods #20: Pressure Canning - Chicken

11-22-2012 02:05 PM by MsDebbieP | 4 comments »

Nov 22/12 Today, I am canning chicken for the first time. I had purchased enough chicken to do the full 15 jars but at the time of filling the jars I forgot that I had had to buy two different kinds of packaging and I was 3 jars short. (The rest is still in the fridge.) So now I will have to put the remaining chicken into the freezer. The chicken was on sale this week but when I looked at buying a $20 whole chicken at $4.40/kg or the chicken breasts at $21.96/kg I was going to get a lot...

Preserving Foods #19: Beef

11-18-2012 11:47 AM by MsDebbieP | 2 comments »

Nov/12 Today I canned some cubed steak. I had two options – cold pack or hot pack. I thought that doing the “hot pack” would help the meat stay in chunk form for when I went to use it. Hot Pack Method cut up the beef into chunks brown but do not cook through put in jars and add hot broth can at 10 lbs pressure for 75 minutes I didn’t like this method. I didn’t have fun. Perhaps it was partly due to having so many things to do after getting h...

Recipes - From The Canning Cupboard #5: Indian Taco Variation

11-03-2012 11:22 AM by MsDebbieP | 1 comment »

(Note: no pictures .. we ate; we licked our lips; but we forget the camera—again) A few years ago I attended a workshop in an Anishnabe community and had the pleasure of having some “Indian Tacos” for lunch. The Indian Taco had a frybread for the base, covered with seasoned ground beef, tomatoes, lettuce, salsa, and some sour cream. The other day I thought about having the tacos but unfortunately I didn’t have any ground beef in the house. But I did have canne...

Preserving Foods #18: Pressure Canning - Ground Beef

11-03-2012 10:11 AM by MsDebbieP | 4 comments »

Nov. 3/12 I’ve been watching the grocery store flyers since I started pressure canning meat and finally a store had lean ground beef on for a reasonable price! I picked up 14 pounds today at $2.47/lb for a total of $35.83The 14 lbs filled 14 pint jars. What I really like about the canned meat is that the pint jars provide just enough for Rick and I to get a couple meals from it, with little leftovers to sit in the fridge. I also like being able to cook up a whack of meat at one...
