April 4th - Arty Moxie, Food Prepping, Canning Sweet Potatoes, Yes Please!
I forgot to mention - I made a little time-lapse of the process....
Why am I prepping canned food and freezing soup? Really, because it's just something to do, it makes me feel better, it's relaxing (if you don't give yourself vegetable-chopping-elbow), and it's cathartic.
Sweet Potato Bread
We had so much sweet potato! I cooked up the skins for the chickens, canned 6 quarts, and then made sweet potato bread with some. We still have a bit in the fridge still, too. I guess tomorrow we're having sweet potato pancakes.
Here is the recipe for the bread - which got a thumbs up from all in the house.
