Ron and I got up early and canned the Yukon Gold potatoes I dug Monday. We got 22 pints of potatoes, 6 quarts of what I call roast vegetable mix. It has carrots, onions and potatoes in it and ready to add to a beef or pork roast. I also canned 3 quarts of beef broth. We had beef roast last night and had some broth left and when I got the roasts the other day I saved the fat I trimmed from a couple and added it to the broth along with some more water and cooked all night in the crock pot. I strained it and canned it. Love to add it to vegetable beef soup when I have it, gives it just a little extra flavor.
I want to do at least 18 more quarts of roast vegetable mix and about 5 more dozen pints of potatoes. We take the potatoes, drain them, add butter and parsley and makes a nice side dish. I've also used them to make potato salad, garlic potatoes and fried them. They are perfect and so convenient to have.
I was so happy that I have 3 canners, 2 were going at the same time (that's all the stove will hold because they are so big) and while the first one was cooling I stuck the 3 one on the stove. Makes for extra cleaning but saves oh so much time.
