I spent last Friday canning, I know that's a strange thing to be doing in April but it had to be done and none of it was veggies. I started with 5 jars of beef, moved on to 19 jars of chicken broth and ended with 7 quart and 5 pint of bean soup. I made the bean soup for Bradley but he told me it looked 'weird' so I don't know if he will eat it or not. He's used to me making bean soup with great northerners, not mixed beans. Kev and Brian both thought it looked good and they really thought it smelled good while cooking. I love to can stuff and my basement if full of goodies I've canned, now just getting my family to eat out of the basement more is the trick!
