Wow, the sun is finally out — 6 Comments

  1. I love reading what you write! I am in Northwestern MN, and it is hard finding articles that address the problems we get in our climate! Not everyone is homesteading in Idaho after all. Look forward to more.

  2. Glad to see the progress on the solar array and your canning! I need to get busy cooking and canning the turkeys I got at a great price at Thanksgiving. We are glad to see glimpses of the sun here in Michigan too. Not too many glimpses these days though.

    • It’s on page 183 of my book, Growing and Canning Your Own Food. If you don’t have the book, let me know and I’ll sure share it here.

  3. Merry Christmas Jackie & Will 😊 I noticed that as you can your Turkey you 1st strain the broth…are you cooling and removing the fat? Again with the silly questions.

    Thanks for all of your expertise throughout the years. You are a treasure.

    • And a very Merry Christmas to you too, Judi! I first roast the turkey, which removes a lot of the fat. I boil the rest, without the pan drippings so there’s not a lot of fat left. I do not remove that. A bit of fat doesn’t affect the seal and adds flavor to the canned turkey. We love it that way and it is so very convenient to have in the pantry.
