Butchering and Preserving


We started cutting meat yesterday and got one hind quarter cut and canned up. Here are the results; 17 quarts of Condensed Elk Stew, 11 quarts of trimmings canned up for dog food, and 16 pints of Sweet Italian Sausage Meatballs.

The wood stove got put through its paces too.

We finished cutting the other hind quarter today and will can it up as Chili and Swiss Steak tomorrow.

In other Gulch news it’s suppose to be cold tonight, the forecast is for 5 below. Just a little while ago it was 23 degree in The Gulch and the town thermometer was registering 5 above.
