Pressure canning meat works well.
The verses were 2 Cor. 9 4-6.
Given my training by grand-dad (the preacher), verse 5 was the important one, but I was taught to give verses on both sides, and not quote out of context.
Sort of applies in this case.... 'as a matter of bounty, not of covetousness.'
It does... but following the instructions with the canner tend toward making the meat better for the catz than for stuff I like to make.
I use twice the recommended salt, add an acid and a sugar (I can always rinse it), always raw pack, and shorten the time.
I won't professionally recommend it officially, but those times/pressures/etc... are for worst case scenarios (like lawsuits), and not for making good meat.
I tend to use HAACP procedures at home, so I'm fairly safe, so far.
I was hoping you jump in Mom! ;-)
I just got back from a week in FL and am getting caught up.
Some parts of the country are going to be really hurting in a shtf scenario. I don’t expect much of a survival rate for some areas. They’ll be ghost towns.
This thread was linked in the other, but I wanted to make sure you took a gander FRiend.
Thanks for the info wolf. I’ll show the folks tonight!
Side note, with regard to the acronym “shtf” - some have protested the vulgarity of it. Around our house, we refer to it as “the shift”. Simply enough to pronounce it “shift” if you find it offensive.
I don't think that is the rule for most people...
most of us try to put a few things away to beat inflation, to save time and effort in running to the store, to have stuff to share, and least of all, to be prepared for major disaster...
major disaster is NOT what anyone wants...
for me, I worry endlessly about my adult children who btw are bamey supporters...they haven't got a clue....that doesn't stop me from bringing them groceries once in a while and preparing in my mind where we will house them if SHTF....and I've already invited them...
in my county, burglary has risen over 60% outside of towns....60%!.....their going around randomly and attacking homes where they think no one is home....the other day, 3 children were home alone when a burglar came into their house...luckily, the snuk out without harm....
I love those "more with less" books....
I'm trying to move away from paper napkins and paper towels...trying to learn all basic cooking and baking with simpler ingredients....
Ah . . paper products. We’ve come to depend on them, I think. Gee whiz! When I was a kid, we never had ‘em. I guess we just wiped our mouths on the backs of our hands after we ate, then paper towels only existed at school and they were those crude brown folded paper towels in a dispenser on the wall. At home, a rather large cloth towel hung on a nail over the table where the water bucket sat. We’d get us a drink out of the dipper, splash a dipper full into the little wash pan on the table, soap up a little, then rinse and dry on the cloth towel; then toss the used water out the back door.
In the outhouse, there was always the Sears and Roebuck catalog stuck up behind a plank. Tear the pages out one at a time, and it did the job!
“ie: Why does Homelend Security need 450 million rounds of high performance HST ammunition?”
Obviously no good reason, just plenty of bad ones. However, if there is a ‘real life’ Ranya, she’d get to the bottom of it and we’d all be extremely grateful!
I'm not required to commit suicide in service of the stupid. I find you as funny as you find me.
Laugh all you want. God will be your judge.
