Venison in the freezer, Venison on the shelf. The guys have been dressing out a few deer. Mr. Fix~it hunts for 3-4 households. His cousin Mike ( more like a brother, remember the guy who drove through my garden? Yes him, We love him anyway) hunts also but has no freezer space. So together they hunt for various homes…Ours, a bit for Mr. Fix~It’s parents & 2 of our daughters Erika & Danielle. Until recently the majority had to fit in our freezer…which was fine when the girls lived at home.
But when they have moved out and Erika’s family expanded, so did the need expand. As you might have guessed we do have 2 deep freezers but, even they can only hold so much. So canning some of the stew and soup meat has saved a surprising amount of space. Especially since there are 3-4 more weeks left in the season
Also has the side benefit of warming the house.
I have to say I was hesitant at first but it’s great! Especially when I forget to thaw meat for supper. Just open a jar of meat, toss in some veggies, make some dinner rolls and Suppers Ready !
