You sound like us..we were canning everything else..but never meat. Tried the chicken canning first and when we had a steer butchered, we tried canning the beef. We’ve never looked back. It’s such a great thing to have them on the shelves. Losing electricity doesn’t mean losing all the meat now.
“Losing electricity doesn’t mean losing all the meat...”
You are so right! Our extra freezer went up last Summer while we were on a vacation. Don’t freezers break when you are gone for a few days and it isn’t in the Winter?! Anyways, lost four frozen turkeys, six chickens, steaks, roasts, chicken legs/breasts and frozen packs of blueberries, and fish. I won’t even get into the smell! Took a few weeks of fans, a ton of baking soda to breathe again. Ick!
