|Our Freezer 9/13/10|
Monday, September 13, 2010
We picked up our side of beef this weekend, so I thought I'd share a peek of what our freezer looks like right now. We cannot possibly fit another thing into it at this point.
On top of the corn and berries I already blogged about, we've been freezing beans from our garden and I regularly make my own beef or chicken stock and cream of mushroom soup to freeze. This year, we bought 25 pounds of wild Pacific sockeye salmon, a side of pork, and a side of beef. We shared the beef and pork with my parents, keeping about 2/3 of each. In total we have more than 400 pounds of meat in here, plus fruit, vegetables, bread, soups, stocks, jams, nuts, and whatever else we can fit. I'm still waiting on tomatoes and apples for canning. After that, I think we're set for the winter.
