    Most recently I canned chicken and chicken broth from a group of 19 week old cockerels. The breast meat was frozen separately. The dark meat canned. Carcasses cooked down for a rich broth & canned.

    I made some delicious beef broth and HAVE to find my lost ( [​IMG] ) stash of flats so that I can get it canned before it goes bad!

    My name is frugal and I'm a canning junkie...

    Seriously, my homestead is far off the grid so canning (instead of using freezers) is a way of life. I can everything from fruits to veggies, meats to meals, and soups to condiments.

    Here's my Chicken Soup from yesterday...

    Chicken Soup
    • Homestead raised Chicken
    • Fresh Carrots
    • Fresh Celery
    • Fresh Onions
    • Freeze Dried Corn
    • Season to taste

    Yummy, yummy, yummy!

    It never occured to me that you have to can maple syrup. But I guess it makes sense.

    I soo can't wait for garden season to get in full swing ....just started all seedlings and waiting for warmer weather to come!
    Recently I canned pickled garlic.....we had tons of garlic and my hubby loves it so I decided to give it a try. First batch a bit too sweet but I cut back sugar in the recipe and now it is awesome if I do say so myself!!!
