This morning I am browning 12 lbs. of hamburger to jar up and can. I had seen a video about packing raw hamburger into the jars without browning it first, so last time I canned hamburger, I tried that method. It turned out just fine, but I find I like the texture of the precooked meat better. It is just a personal preference.
There are 6 bananas sitting in the fruit bowl on my kitchen table that need to be turned into a couple of loaves of banana bread, so as soon as the pressure canner full of meat is going, banana bread making will commence. I will share a loaf with Oldest Son. He loves banana bread as much as I do. He reads my blog, so I am guessing he will show up tonight after work to collect his loaf without my having to call him.
And that's the extent of the excitement here in my little Home Sweet Apartment. When the chores are done, some sewing will happen. And quite possibly, a nap.
There was a time when I would tease my Dad about his afternoon naps, but the older I get the more I realize, the man was on to something. :)
