I am using this blog post as a way of keeping up with the food I am freezing, dehydrating, fermenting or canning for 2016. Since I just thought of doing this (saw it on someone else's blog and am stealing the idea) and am a little late to the 2016 party, as of today I am just listing what I remember. After this I will keep a concise list which might help me when it comes to consuming what I have processed. I will include meats, seasonal produce, pickles and even some spirited infusions. Anything that has a "do now, enjoy later" plan will be listed. Comments and suggestions are always welcome, since I sometimes am too narrow with my visions of how to process things. I am also going to keep a companion list called The Use em Up List. Right now it is empty because I haven't used anything from this list. I am just hoping having both will help me control inventory a little better without having to eat only from the freezer like we are having to do right now.
I will be updating this each time I add anything to the prepped foods, but will repost it monthly.
This is not a picture of my freezer, just a randomly google searched picture, but along with visions of sugarplums this is one of my fantasy images.
