Post Content
Just an old Tennessee boy. 65 to 70 degree.cellar. Apples Pears packed in straw. Pickles in urns or barrels. Potatoes on a table to allow ventilation. Peppers strung to dry.
I just slow cook meat and some time potatoes in slow cooker then move them to the caners.Shelf time for this type of canning is 2+years. Good for me. I dehydrate scrambled eggs and seal cheese in vacuum packs. I have enough food preserved for 4 people to last 2 years.

worshipdang!!! i want you for my guru!!

thank you so much for your good advise. great to have an old tennessee boy helping us out!!

so i leave the potatoes out on a table? can i use a wire rack with wood or something on it?

the fruit in straw, do i put those in boxes or barrels?

i think the last time i canned beef, we just cut it up and then pressure cooked it, i could be wrong though.

i have cheese vacuum packed. how do you dehydrate eggs?

wow, i'm such a noob at all this. so glad i have people helping me get my stuff together.hugs

I want to know about the eggs too. I think you layer the fruit in the straw. I have heard straw and newspaper and fruit in layers like a lasagna, but want to hear about tennessee boys way. I was told the same way for potatoes (straw) in boxes.

So drendwire, can I make my food, such as stew and can it? Does it get overcooked when you actually eat it? I have not tried meat yet, but its on my list. Maybe I need a vacuum packer. How long does the cheese last if you do that?
