Re: Canning your own meats and shelf life in Tropics
Two fellows of British extraction were on a motoring tour through the United States when they drove into Iowa. They began to marvel at the endless corn fields. They soon saw a farmer and the driver said, "l am going to pull over and ask that farmer what they do with all this corn."
He got out and asked the farmer, "Excuse me, sir, but what do you do with all this corn?”
The farmer replied in a slight Midwestern drawl, " Well, we eat what we can, and what we can't, we can."
The driver thanked the man and got back into the car.
"Well, what did he say about the corn?" asked the passenger.
"It was quite amusing, really," said the driver. "He said,'We eat what we are able to. What we are unable to eat, we put up into tins.'"
