    Deal is, when regular canned food runs out you better know how to can your own...

    We canned up a bunch of salsa last night. We also are using up the mountain of tomatoes we had by just roasting em up with squash and red onion (or whatever else I have) to freeze in jars for tomato sauce. Its really simple to just chunkem up roastem in a big pan for several hours till the liquids gone them blendem with a bit of oil for a general purpose tomato based sauce;)

    Tuna in August, apple cider this last month, apple pie filling and apples next week end. Going to can up some stew mix, meat, potatoes carrots, probably some salmon when we start catching them next month.

    Canning is pretty easy, it is a lot of work. Pretty easy way to store food, we pressure cook everything, never had any problem. You need .75 protein for each person each day, so it makes planning easy.

    Just finished 20 pounds of berries last week. My wife and I love to can. It's our time together in the kitchen. I will be making beer this week. The whole community smell so good from our work.

    I pretty much freeze all my berries. Keep some for breakfast and pancake additions, and then will start into making jam the first week or so of December. Christmas gifts for the family and some friends.

    Sounds fun and is certainly a necessity. I helped some folks in Idaho can boxes and boxes of Veggies, many years ago. I saw my first Moose Cow there in Idaho, and it is a Beautiful State.
