Preparation

Step 1

1. Place stew meat in 4 quart pot and add just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and simmer 1 hour. Drain meat and grind coarse.
2. Place ground meat in an 8 quart pot along with all remaining ingredients. Stir together and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer gently for 1 hour, stirring the mixture occasionally. Allow to cool.
3. The filling is ready to use or pack into 1 quart conning jars and freeze for later use.
4. It makes a great gift.

My Notes:
1. Make sure the canning jars are very clean - just coming from a hot dish washer.
2. Can freeze in other freezer appropriate containers.
