I'm in the throes of canning meats from my freezer. So far I have canned lots of venison, some pork shoulder, a few jars of lard along with a couple of jars of tallow and schmaltz, plus some bacon... and plan on doing sausage patties this afternoon. Tomorrow will be making butter from local cream, cooking it down to ghee, and canning that.
What are you canning for potential extended power outages?
I caned some meat this week, Chicken and Bacon. Had to build more shelf in the garage to store it.
First time with bacon, got a good price. I heard pork and beef will be going up soon ?????
I plan to re can the bacon as per darius link...sounds like a better way to go.
The first pic is our inside pantry , Rabbit, chicken, both with many qts. of stock, tomatoes all types, pickles , pickle watermelon, green beans...
below it, not shown, we have corn and more tomatoes.
Second pic (garage) the bacon and chicken.

apples are in the basement
tomato's in freezer
berries in freezer
going ot pick up squash
still need to get the pic of the ones i got out in the garden
well i m not to sure about my jerky ?
did a marinade of soysauce , worchestire, lemon juice, garlic, brown sugar and some honey.
the meat was from last season wrapped only in butcher wrap. my friend gave it to me .
cut off the silver skin. noticed some freezer burn cut that off.
155 for the temp 6 hrs
taste salty to me but i don't use alot of salt in my cooking and anything with soy is salty to me.
Never had deer before i know it will have a different taste
hmmmm still on my quest
hope to get some fresh meat this fall
yeah i should have known the soy sauce would add alot of salt. i only put in 1/4 cup ? but i thought the lemon juice would help and the honey.
its a work in progress
i think i will stay with my drying meat for food source then a snack :) LOL
i got my book Dehydrating iwth an Attitude love the book.
this weekend its applesauce roll ups
made apple sauce but that is a different thread :)
