Putting Up, Putting Away
It was a good day altogether, and the cellar is almost full to bursting now. A few more jars of stew, some spiced pears and then some winter jam-making will finish filling the shelves. With the free gas, I might be canning some dried beans too--the cost would certainly be less than buying canned.
Here is the recipe for beef stew that I use. It is modified from one in the Better Homes and Gardens Canning Cookbook. I've used this cookbook so much that my copy is stained and ragged, but it remains my favorite canning bible.
