Black Friday Canning
No it isn't turkey! It is the leftover roast and gravy that was in the frig from the other day. It won't get eaten now that there is so much good turkey to eat so I am canning it. No I don't have a specific recipe but it has meat in it and is in pints so it is being canned for 75 minutes. I have canned it several times before. No, there isn't a whole lot of it, just 3 pints but I only have as small canner and I don't see what difference it makes. The leftovers from such a good meal have to be saved and there is no room in the freezer beside if it was frozen it would likely not get used. We love leftover roast and gravy on eggs for breakfast and a jar of it is so much easier.
That is not all that is happening here today. I have quail hatching again. Not many and that is my fault for not watching the incubator well enough. I really need a new one I think. It holds temperature real good for days and then one morning you wake up to 3 quail sitting in an incubator that reads 94 degrees. Not good. There are other pips in some of the other eggs but I doubt they will make it.
I also plan to get down to the garden, clear the old sour cherry bushes from in front of it and rake and pile leaves down there to start a spot of good dirt for the grapes to be planted in.
It is so nice to have more than one day to get things accomplished here this week!
