    Did you save the skins for tater skins?

  • That looks delicious.

  • You been busy.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • Get yourself a pressure canner and go save the extras for a snowy day or a quick reheat after work. I'm addicted to canning. Just did 7 quarts of beef stew last week.

  • @cortguitarman - what advantage do you find of canning over freezing? Is it texture, flavor?

    We have used preserve jars for soup, kept very well but found the texture and flavor no different than freezing, so we usually go that way. Never tried canning stews. 

    @henapple - nice looking soup, looks like the skins are still on.

    I leave the skins on. I bake the potatoes with the bacon on the raised rack to drip on the taters. How do you do your skins?

    I foodsaver the soup and give most away. We eat ours fresh.

  • @skiddymarker the tastes aren't different. I'd say the advantage is that canned soups and stews don't take up room in the freezer, you make bigger batches in quart jars or smaller single serve batches in pint sized jars, and the biggest advantage is that they'll last longer -- up to a year. Things in the freezer that long will get freezer burned.

    With that said, my stew that I made will need thickeners added when I make it. Right now it looks more like vegetable soup, which is fine too. Also, if I forget to take frozen soup out of the freezer to thaw it takes too long. With canned I can open it up, heat, and eat.

    I've never put any thought into it. I guess I've just always put a little olive oil and coarse sea salt on 'em, tossed them on the grill for a while to warm and get a bit toasty and then topped with some cheese and bacon and let them cook until the cheese melts. Pull off and top with green onions and sour cream on the side for those that want it. Not sure what temp and time I've done them at. 350-400 range seems like it might be right.
