What does a homestead do during a blizzard?

We can! (of course!)

What are great things to can during the winter when there is no fresh produce?

I do meat of course.

Canned Chicken

Canned Chicken -ignore my hard water stains 

canned venison

Meat is convenient to have canned all year round.  It takes a while in the pressure canner and keeps your house nice and toasty!

Of course soups have to be canned to the time of the longest item in them.  So a soup with meat also has a fairly  long processing time.

Soups I can include bean and ham, bean and sausage, chili, taco soup, and the chicken layered.

I can soups in both pints for Brian to take to work and quarts for quick lunches for us.

Blessings!
