    Getting ready for canning season

    I know it is a bit early, . . . but it was too cold for anything outside (never got above 0 at my place), . . . so we put in a whole bunch of new shelving, . . . re-arranged some of the old, . . . counting down the days till we are back in the canning business.

    The "L" shaped group were done a couple years back, . . . the flat group with the mirror in the middle were all done today.

    Not a professional job by any means, . . . but if it'll hold the jars and cans, . . . I'm not complaining.

    The mirror pulls back and there is a cabinet behind it, . . . it's full of spices and the like. The mirror came from my uncle's dairy farm from decades ago.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    Awesome Job Mr Dwight!

    One suggestion, put some support braces under some of the shelves on the left.

    Looks great Dwight! And it will look even better when those jars are filled!

    One thing we won't have to do this year is green beans, . . . started putting stuff up on the shelves, . . . WHOA-nelly, . . . found jars from back in '14 we gotta eat up, . . . plus 15, 17, and 18.

    Tomatoes are going to be on the agenda this year, . . . maybe some kraut, . . . juice, . . .

    Also got a freezer full of meat that needs to go into jars.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    a subject that doesn't get discussed often - Are you ready for some "emergency" preserving?

    grid goes down and it's a SHTF that you can see long term outage and plenty of associated problems involved - including food shortages ....

    can you preserve that protein sitting in your freezer? >>> going to be all kinds of meat defrosting all over - it'll be going cheap $$$$ - are you ready to salvage the meat into your freezer until it can be canned or smoked or brined???

    Great point, on the "hurry up and process the freezer".
    I also am about to build some shelves in the pantry, but mine has the angled stairwall to deal with.
