Pressure Canner (homesteading necessity, chicken stock recipe, and buying only what you need)

We are slowly building our life and items we need back up.  We just purchase what we need as cash allows.  Last night we joyfully added to the cart a few imperative homesteading items.  A pressure canner (when the lid is off it’s a water bath canner), jars, stock pot, and canning gear.

First things first, chicken stock.  I am shocked at how much organic stock costs.  Here is my recipe for it should you need it from a prior blog post.

I am heading to my Great Aunt Donna’s for rhubarb this weekend.  And the hunt is on for everything I can get my hands on to can.  Rows of organic canned goods are amazing to have on hand any time of the year, goodness without listeria, E Coli, or whatever the heck else is in our food system.  Great, delicious, wonderful home grown food….oh, I am getting carried away.  Stock, that is where I was at…

    • We sold or gave away most of it but do have a bit of it left. Since we were couch hopping last year we couldn’t can but this year I will get caught back up!

  1. Your post gave me pantry envy! Our move interstate is bitter sweet as, while we are finally going to get the acreage we have been dreaming of, we also have to get rid of a lot of our supplies to be able to make the move. We will build back up eventually!

  2. I would LOVE to build up a pantry like this! Thank you for the inspiration! We are on our way to purchasing land and building a yurt, and this idea will be wonderful in the future, but helpful in saving money now! Thanks ☺️
