One of my all-time favorite items to put up in the pantry, is Beef Stew! My garden is full of potato plants, onions and carrots so close to being ready to pull! Their destination - the pantry shelf!
This has become a yearly task for us, and one that is enjoyed by everyone! My children love to pick the carrots and onions, and my husband loves to dig up the potatoes! A full day of cubing meat, chopping vegetables and pressure canning by my mom and myself, yields enough jars of beef stew to fill both my parents' pantry and our pantry shelfs with plenty of stew to enjoy in the fall and winter!
