Preserving The Harvest .....Pics

My garden was nothing to brag about this year but I am getting some fresh zuccini. Spelled that wrong huh? Planning to go to the Snake River the end of the month and spend about a week stocking up on catfish and maybe some bass. Then rather than can, I freeze. I tried that canning once and it didn't go real well!

Preserving the harvest

Don . How's it going ?? . I have a 12 qt pressure canner and I just follow the direction in it and everything turns out great . The mackerel is like canned salmon, you can eat the bones and all . They get right soft . I'm not fussy about fish after it has been frozen . I find it really looses it's flavor .. I had to try a jar of everything that I have to make sure it was good, and it is . I love beet greens and I have 9 bottles now . I'm living alone, so I'm doing enough for myself . The fish and meat you just pack in the jars and leave about 1 inch of head space and don't add any liquid . Just fill the jars adjust the lids and process . The fish tales 110 mins. The meat takes 75 mins. . Beans 20 mins and the greens take 70 mins. .....

Preserving the harvest

Cowgal I have enough beans and the fish will be a change from the bear and deer . I'm patiently wating to get my bear snares out on the first of Oct. . Going to do the bear in roasts and in the jars . Maybe a couple steaks for the babbie ...I'll do the deer in chops and steaks and an odd roast and some burger .More burger than roasts . The burger is so versitile . There is so many different ways you can use the burger ......

Been canning, freezing and drying.
Was not such a good potato year but I got enough reds out of the garden to last till Jan. Great pea year.
Still have to can the hot peppers and freeze the corn. I now dry tomatos instead of canning.

ADK , Did you ever try the garlic rolled in tin foil and done on the BBQ or in the oven ??. That's makes it right sweet .. Same with onion ,and you don't peel either one . Just roll in the foil and cook ...

Preserving the harvest

Ahhh , fiddlehead , their not in the cupboard, but I have 9 jars in the basement .I'll have to get them in the cupboard so I don't forget about them . I tried a bottle not too long ago to see how they were and their peffect . I done them in water boil method so I'll have to check everytime I open one for a different smell . If they don't look good or have an odd smell I won't eat it .....
