After making the broth needed for dinner last week, I had enough beef broth leftover to fill 3 quart jars. Since I’m trying to clean out the freezer, I decided to can the broth instead of freeze it. I prefer to can everything that works well with canning because if we lose power, I don’t have to worry about losing what I have in the freezer.
Then I thought to myself . . go ahead and use the rest of the soup bones in the freezer and make all the beef broth and that will get those packages out of the freezer.
I browned the bones, then stuck them in the crock pots, simmered them all day Saturday and canned 10 more quarts (for a total of 13 quarts) and one pint of beef broth.
One day this week, we’re going to have smoked chicken and I’ll make chicken broth from the chicken bones.
I’m not saying I never used canned broth . . I use it often because I use so much but any time I can have homemade broth vs. store bought broth, I’m happy!
