I have been caning chicken. We butchered 85 of the summers laying hens and I have been in the kitchen for days deep in the caning trance. I have finished 106 quarts of chicken soups and stock, tonight I am caning just straight chicken to use in casseroles and such later. I love to see all those lovely jars on the shelves but right now I am pretty sick of chicken! We have three more batches of 85 and all the hens will be gone. Hopefully I can get that done in the next few weeks if the weather cooperates.
