So this past week I ordered two boneless half hams and a bunch of fresh vegetables. The plan was to can up several kinds of soup. I love having soups in my pantry for a quick lunch or with a sandwich or cornbread for supper.
This morning I canned 16 pints of ham, potato and cabbage soup and this afternoon it was 16 pints of ham and potato soup.
At which point I ran out of ham.
I had prepped all the vegetables earlier - potatoes, carrots, onions, celery, peas and cabbage - so tomorrow morning I will mix them all together, stir in some granulated garlic and powdered chicken bouillon and can that up to use as a soup or casserole base.
I don't care what anybody says - you can never have too much food put by.
