One thing I've loved about canning the past two years are starting to can meat and starting to can convenience foods. I dug up some of our potatoes this week and had some tomatoes and onions left along with some of our herbs so I added some carrots and stew beef and made some delicious beef stew. Fortunately, one jar didn't seal so we were able to eat it for dinner. Yum! All I can say is we didn't can enough to last through the winter. It will make delicious lunches and an easy last minute dinner!
