First Canning of the Year

Yesterday I canned chicken. I know that sounds gross, but really it isn't. Last year I saw some bottled chicken at my friends' house. At first I didn't know what it even was until I asked. When she told me I thought it sounded yucky. As I got thinking about it I wondered why it would be yucky. I buy canned chicken, so why not do it myself. But, I never did. Then, my friend gave me some to try. It was YUMMY! And, it was so convenient. I told her that one day she would have to show me how to do it. Well that one day was Monday. She brought over some chicken and a pressure cooker. So, yesterday I canned away. I got 19 quarts! That's 19 meals!! It will be so easy, just open a jar and I can make enchiladas, sandwiches, salads, and so much more! I think I will be doing this again when the chicken is on sale, it is totally worth it!

What a great idea! My mom did pototoes a few weeks ago and it sounded gross too, but how nice to have cooked potatoes for any meal!
