This past week has been devoted to food preservation. 19 quarts of chicken have been canned. This evening another load of meat will be set out to thaw for canning over the weekend.
The dehydrators have been running nearly nonstop with apples onions and potatoes. A couple of weeks ago I dried carrots. Carrots need to be blanched before drying and I tried a microwave method that worked like a charm. But this week I found that the same method doesn't work for potato cubes. They turned black in the dehydrator. Lesson learned: stick to the tried and true methods.
So today is a day of catching up on all those pesky household chores that tend to go by the wayside when busy working on food storage.
There is one thing I have noticed in the past 24 hours. Since our President came down with the virus, I have seen some of the most vicious, vile, hateful remarks by some blog commenters (Not here. You all are too classy for such things.), on social media and on the left leaning news shows, that I never thought possible. There is something seriously wrong with people who delight in the fact that our President and First Lady have contracted a virus that can kill. I guess this is what happens when you insist God be removed from our schools, public buildings and all the rest.
Pray and prepare. Not only are we fighting a virus and civil unrest, we are fighting evil. Pray and prepare.
