What are you canning today? Part 8
Posted 02 April 2012 - 03:26 PM
I need a meat thermometer and candy thermometer still for canning and some other stuff to do with preserving meats.
I also am seeing the town grocery store is having a five for 24.99 meat sale , most of the time. Alot of that meat is sold for more than 7.99lb here, so getting it like that is like bulk buys. I can can that meat up and its not ground meats.
After the pink slime concerns being so public, I don't trust their hamburger. It is not filling or satisfying anyhow to me so I was rarely buying it but one gets real tired of beans and soy tvp and chicken. The chicken in more naturally raised but I don't know the facts on the beef they get and will be asking questions, but meat sliced up or cut up and not ground is going to be my choice and I know I ran across a meat grinder that was manual that also does spaghetti noodles, so that would be nice for me to have. So I could grind my own when I do want a burger, once I get that grinder. I could also make my own sausage and freeze it.
So, getting the brain more in gear and trying to do the right thing for me when it comes to a snug budget. canning seems to be the answer for my needs, partly.
I worked with chores and kneading some bread dough today and using my shoulder and upper arm , left side as much as I could today, hopefully in a few more days I will know if I can lift the canner on the stove and such things again. Shoulder and upper arm on the left are often excruciating with pain and am not able to lift it very high but if I can manage some simple canning, it would go a long ways in generally caring for myself. I can't afford a freezer for now. I need to save for a car and do medical stuff and that all takes money.

We don't really have much here yet. Just asparagus and the strawberries will be next.
Is there a safe, tested recipe for chocolate banana ? I am not familiar with that one.
