Because the store chickens are Cornish Cross and live all packed into a barn and your birds aren't CCs and don't live all packed together?

Store bought chicken is bred for white breast meat. They are slaughtered at 6 weeks and haven’t lived long enough to develop any flavor. They get huge fast, I raise them in the spring, they get so big, they take a step or two and squat down again.

@Jesusfreak101 your chickens have had a life. They caught bugs, scratched in dirt and ran around acting like chickens.

Whew I am tired. I processed 69 pounds of beef liver for the dogs. I started at 8:30AM and just put the 4th batch in the canner and cleaned up my mess, Cloroxed everything and put it all away. This batch will be done at 8:45PM. I have 28 quarts and 6 quart bags, raw, in the freezer. Dogs got some on their food tonight and licked the bowls clean. I changed bed sheets and washed 4 loads of clothes. It has rained all day. Supper was canceled due to lack of interest on my part. My husband’s survival meal is a bologna sandwich. LOL

This stuff looks nasty. It stinks. The house stinks. I hate liver. Gross slimy crap, but gosh darn the dogs love it. I guess I’m onto something.

Next time, if there IS a next time, maybe you need to break out the respirators. I agree, liver cooking is PU stinky. I don't think anyone in the family would eat it so I'm safe.

That was some kind of bargain you got on liver. Good job canning it up Bay! But I must confess, that is some ugly stuff. Mom used to make liver and onions a lot. I liked it! I have never cooked it for my family though. I guess that means I liked moms, but don't crave it enough to bother. That, and nobody would probably eat it.

Oh I’ll do it again. I keep the offal when we send animals to slaughter, I can it for the dogs. But we ran out! If I can just go buy it like this, I’ll make the dogs real happy. 15 more minutes and I can turn the canner off.

On the last batch one of the jars broke in the canner. Phooey. I had 12 jars left, I need to get some more and do this a couple more times and get stocked up good.

Coffee is ready! I sure need it.

Thanks for coffee @Baymule
Sorry you lost a jar of dogfood. Sounds like a lot of work but I am sure the dogs appreciate it.
They get bored with their dog food. Our female Great Pyrenees will leave a bowl of kibble for days, in the summer, ants get in it. So making dog food for them to mix with their kibble makes them eat it all up. When we slaughter chickens, o can the backs, necks, gizzards, hearts and livers for them. With 4 big dogs, it's hard to make it last, now that I can just go buy beef livers for 25 cents a pound, I won't ever run out!

One of these days, I’d like to pm you, I’d like to start canning again, my hubby doesn’t because if the work involved, I’m wondering if it’s gotten any easier?
