Canning shelves for 2016
I am finally finished canning for 2016. The only thing that I may have to can is venison if Ryder or Jeremiah get another deer. We froze the meat from the doe Ryder already got. My mom needs some venison so the next deer will go to her but both boys can get a doe and a buck each. We only harvest what we will eat so really we only need to get two more deer. One for mom and one more for us.
Here is the break down on the jars.
::The first shelf from the ceiling is our tomato soup. We have already eaten a lot of jars. Madi has eaten the bulk of those jars. She took them to work. :-)
::The second shelf is salsa on the left and carrots on the right. I may end up canning more carrots because they are so convenient to have on hand. One of Ryder's favorite sides is sweet carrots. I melt some butter and brown sugar together. When it is blended I just add a jar of drained carrots and heat it thoroughly. Easy peasy.
::On the third shelf starting from the left is grape juice then some applesauce from last year, then some spaghetti sauce that I also canned last year. Next in line is some spicy banana peppers and some peaches- again from last year. Finishing up that shelf is jams. I have elderberry, peach and blueberry.
::The fourth shelf is the green beans.
::The bottom shelf from the left is red beets, venison, honey and maple syrup.
That's a wrap on this year. Hopefully I haven't bored you with all the canning updates. Until next time, be blessed and enjoy this November!
