I did manage to get some updates accomplished as well. Most of the usual suspects of course. Hope to get a few more done tomorrow. We'll see.

I also got an addition to Mother Hen's Recipes accomplished and hope to get a few more before the night ends.
And with recipes in mind, today's videos feature dry canning ground beef. You can now purchase nuke-able stuff like this in some grocery stores. It comes in plastic packages that you just pop in the microwave and heat for 60 seconds. I've tried it out ... pricey but convenient. Texture could use some improvement but it isn't bad enough to prevent me from using it whether it is an emergency or not. Still prefer my own homecanned version but for those that only need this for an extremely occasional use, the stuff in the store isn't bad. Certainly good for storm/emergency/camping bags. The brand I used was Libby's and I tried to find it on amazon.com and couldn't locate it. Maybe someone else can some other way.
I've canned and dried ground beef a lot of different ways but the following examples that I pulled from youtube seem to be result in the best long term texture.
