So I want to can some of the beef to take back with me when I go. The ground beef and probably some of the cubed steak, which my husband doesn't seem to like. I think the canning will change the texture enough to fool him into thinking it's something else. At least I hope it does. If not, next time I'm going to have to ask for all that "cubed steak" to be turned into ground beef instead.
    I'm told that how you season it while prepping the canning process has a lot to do with it. Ok, so I forgot to season the last batch. It's straight beef just cut into chunks. That won't happen again. But, I'm still new to this so what the heck.

    I bought 10lbs of chicken yesterday which I intend to can this weekend. My friend says she has canned over 120 lbs of chicken using an unusual method for raw pack. She fills the jar with chicken broth up to the head space line. She said she's never had a problem with it and loves the way it tastes so I'm going to give it a try.

    Today, I am loading more AR mags, FNFAL mags, AK mags and Galil mags.

    I am not breaking into sealed cases just what is in ammo cans, mags will go into those cans when filled.

    The bitch is that the 50 round Galil mags are too long for the cans except the 20 MM ones.

    I’m sure many of you have been replenishing food items and preps you used during the last lock down. And also grabbing up new items to plug up holes in your prepping plan. I have been doing the same and had a schedule in mind of topping up pet foods and freezer meats in October just prior to the election. I figured the the crazy shit would start around voting day. That all changed last nite with the death of RBG. I’m pretty sure the crazy shit will start the minute Trump announces his new pick. Time to buy now!

    You did see where the left said everything would burn if a new SCJ is appointed?

    Already started on it, still a lot of what I buy is still not in stock, intermittent at best.

    TP and PT are still in short supply, buying another 20 pound propane tank next trip.

    Have another freezer coming in two weeks, will fill that right up.

    Yesterdays' score: Walked into the local Big Box Home Improvement store and there was a clearance table right at the entrance. First bin was filled with back-to-school supplies, all marked down to 25¢ each. I stocked up on theme notebooks, ink pens and kiddy scissors.

    I think I spent all of eight bucks on this!



    This morning, it's off to the toy show... err.... gun show. Holy crap has ammo skyrocketed! I saw, believe it or not, 9mm at $1.20/rd! .223 and 5.56 was gone..... I spotted four boxes of .223 at a reloader's table, two 20-rd and two 100-rd boxes. Never bothered to look at the price... I didn't feel like filling out a 2nd mortgage loan. This shît's gitting ca-RAY-zee.



    But I did find two boxes of 44-40 for the Win 1873 (up just a couple bucks a box from 'normal'), along with some 'infinite' firestarters for BOB and GHBs. Plus a (Hungarian or Bulgarian?) nylon sling for the AK-47. I've already got it installed and boy oh boy it sure looks good on the Norinco now that she's starting to accessorize!

    Got all this for less than a c-note. So I came home a very happy camper, despite not finding any of the .308 I was looking for.

    I didn't season it at all other than the seasoning in the purchased broth I used as liquid. I had three jars out of 12 fail to seal, which was disappointing, so those are in the refrigerator. The ground beef itself tastes plain, but fine. No weird taste like you get in commercial canned chicken, which is what I was afraid of. Today I canned beans and carrots. So once I got over the initial fear of the pressure canner, I turned into a pressure canning machine. LOL

    Why kiddy scissors? Speaking of kiddy scissors, how many people here learned to cut with them? I learned to cut at home with these. What a step backwards when I started kindergarten.

    Small.

    Lightweight.

    No sharp points.




    Perfect for bags & kits.








    Ever notice what paramedics carry? Just kiddy scissors on steroids.
