Have you ever found yourself scrambling for something to think of to serve for supper or got lost in the hours of the day and low and behold, the family is hungry? I have been there, too often to want to remember!
If you are a canner, you can be prepared for this situation. Today I’m going to share a few ways how to cook home canned potatoes!
If you are a gardner and have had extra potatoes or found a wonderful deal on several pounds or bags of potatoes and you are a canner….you are in business.
Canning potatoes is easy and once you have a stash of canned potatoes, it is limitless what you can think of to use them for. Here are a couple of my favorite and easy ways to use them.
- Make a Pot Pie with them.
You can easily use your canned chicken, vegetables, and potatoes to make a pot pie with. Just add the chicken, broth, vegetables, and a can of potatoes to the pot. Thicken with cornstarch or potato starch or arrowroot. Place in a pie shell and cover with a crust of your choice ( homemade or store bought). Bake in the oven until the crust is golden brown.
- Soups or Stews. They hold up well used in the crockpot or for any skillet meals.
- You can also use them as a side dish. This meal was entirely made by canned items. I pulled a jar of canned beef, canned corn, and the canned potatoes. Warmed all three of them up and used the juice from the beef and potatoes to make gravy. Complete meal was ready in less then 15 minutes.
