Beef Stew Canning

Although we have cancelled the Friday shifts for beef stew, there are still several shifts available on the other days. Both the stew and the meat require a large number of people to process so you have to scroll all the way to the bottom to see all available spots. This stew tastes great and is a really quick meal! I add peas and corn to extend it and have dinner on the table in 10 minutes.

Please use the following links to access the signups for the stew (Limit one shift/person):

Since we initially scheduled the Family Canning Beef Chunks and Ground Beef, we have opened up various shifts. Please be aware that the prices have increased. Beef Chunks are now $69.60/case and Ground Beef is now $57.60. (Those who have already signed up for the meat should have already made corrections to your orders.) If you are interested in doing the canned meats, please sign up as soon as possible.

As of this email there were 26 spots available to schedule meat. Use the links below to get to the different signups (Limit one shift/person):

Grass-Fed Beef

Here is a package deal they have available of their grass-fed beef:

7 lbs. of ground beef
3 lbs. of hamburger patties
1 roast (3.5 lbs)
2 Steaks (New York strip or Filet Mignon cut)
TOTAL = $55.00
If you or anyone you know may be interested, contact Lisa Harris ASAP. They are selling fast.

Grass-fed meats improve fat levels Eating moderate amounts of grass-fed meat for only 4 weeks will give you healthier levels of essential fats, according to a 2011 study in the British Journal of Nutrition.
The British research showed that healthy volunteers who ate grass-fed meat increased their blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids and decreased their level of pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids. These changes are linked with a lower risk of a host of disorders, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, depression, and inflammatory disease.
Interestingly, volunteers who consumed conventional, grain-fed meat ended up with lower levels of omega-3s and higher levels of omega-6s than they had at the beginning of the study, suggesting that eating conventional meat had been detrimental to their health.
British Journal of Nutrition (2011) Red meat from animals offered a grass diet increases plasma and platelet N-3 PUFA in healthy consumers. Volume 105, pages 80-89.

Dear Subscribers,
Just a quick reminder: Online signups for the current Lindon Cannery, Family Canning opportunities begins Friday, February 4th @ 8:00 a.m.
Since we have had quite a few who have signed up on our distribution list since we sent out our last email, the following is a repeat of what was sent last week. Those who have already received and understood this email do not need to read any further.
Dear Subscribers,
On Friday, February 4th @ 8:00 a.m. the next signups for family canning will open for registration. Beef Stew will be offered February 22nd – 25th (4 days) and the Canned Beef Chunks/Ground Beef will be offered as combined items on March 2nd-4th and 8th-9th (5 days). You will only need to sign up for one shift to be able to purchase both Beef Chunks and/or Ground Beef.  (If you want both beef stew and beef chunks, you will need to go to a beef stew link to register for beef stew and then return to the list of links and select the link for the Canned Beef products and register for the meat. One shift/person/product.)  Please pre-plan which days and times you want to schedule. We have very little time between the registration opening and the actual start date. We need signups to happen quickly.
You can go to the website right now to preview the details (prices, limits, etc. – subject to change) for each of these signups under the Coming_Soon links (instructions included below). When the links become active on February 4th, there will be a signup link for each day being scheduled. You will need to register for each product that you want to purchase and pay close attention to which day and which shift you are scheduling for.  
Please note that when you schedule one shift for “Canned Beef” you will be able to purchase a combined limit of 6 cases for the beef chunks and/or ground beef. (Ex: Beef Chunks: 4 cases + Ground Beef: 2 cases = 6 case limit) It is very important for you to double check your information before you confirm your shift so you are sure what you have ordered. (Remember: the only way to change or verify your information once you are scheduled is to UNDO your shift and reschedule.)
