    First I must state I'm a newbie @ canning. I've really went OCD on canning foods that were on sale for the holidays.

    Last night after driving for 7 + hours, feeling tired, my DH asked what were we going to eat!!! I wasn't in the mood to watch frozen ground beef defrost so mentally tossing a coin as to whether to turn into a fast food business or just have fried egg sandwhich for our dinner.

    Suddenly a thought of my food storage popped in my head (divine intervention!). I had canned meatballs, pasta sauce & spaghetti sitting on the shelf! Then I remembered I had canned Amish meatloaf balls, ground beef, shredded chicken, chili, beef stew as well as beef stroganoff. I had my own fast food just sitting there on the shelves.

    I've been pressure canning for the last few months & have enjoyed it so much that I was trying every recipe that I could get. Soooo...not only did my DH & I have a healthy meal but the meal took less than 20 mins to put together (about the same amount of time to go through a drive through window!!)

    Now I'm part of the canning choir icon_smile.gif icon_lol.gif

    Wecome to the forum, friend!

    The best thing is that you ate your own, healthy food and probably saved a BUNCH of your hard-earned money
    . Fast food for two runs something like $15 and your canned goods were likely pennies on the dollar.

    Yes, you are correct. The simple act of going home, opening a canned jar of meatballs to prepare our meal saved us the $s as well as the calories icon_smile.gif

    Thank you for replying to my post. I've been seeking a forum that concentrates on all types of food preservation but particularly pressure canning. I'm hoping this is the ONE for me!

    This is the one for you! Lots and Lots and Lots of helpful members who love to can. Some do it for the joy of it, some because they "can", and some because it's so much better for you than store bought and you have total control of what goes into your food!
