This Pantry Pottage became a traditional Thanksgiving Eve dinner many many years ago in my family. I think the original recipe was one that my mom had gotten off the local news station when I was still in high school. The idea behind the dish was to use up all the canned beans and vegatables from your pantry and toss them into a crock pot to cook up some fabulous and easy dish that would serve up a house of visitors.
Several years ago now, the original printed recipe that my mom had ended up disappearing among a chaotic move. I've since scowered the web to find it, though to no avail. I did, however, manage to find a similar version that I've tweaked to be closer to what my mom and I remember.
The holidays are a BUSY time. And my mom and I always love to make this Pantry Pottage up ahead of time to have completely ready to go on the night before turkey day or ‘Thanksgiving Eve’. The FoodSaver® FM3941 Vacuum Sealing System along with FoodSaver® Bags and Rolls Value Pack are the perfect solution. FoodSaver® is the number 1 Vacuum Sealing solution in the US!
The FoodSaver® saves food. Keeping it fresh up to 5 times longer than other ordinary storage methods. It also saves time! Built-in features to easily preserve food in the freezer or refrigerator. They are best for long-term freezer storage, blocking out air and helping to prevent freezer burn. Having this Pantry Pottage made up and ready to go, stocked away in the freezer, makes entertaining a breeze.
You can also use the FoodSaver® for marinating. Perfectly marinate meat and fish in minutes, not hours using the Quick Marinate Mode. The FoodSaver® also saves you money. When buying in bulk, buying on sale, and preventing waste, you can save up to $2,700 yearly!
Overall FoodSaver Benefit: By taking all of the air out, you can ensure your meat will be cooked evenly throughout.
During November Costco will have the a couple of FoodSaver® promotions going on! The FM3941 Vacuum Sealing System will be $40 OFF and the FoodSaver® Bags and Rolls Value Pack will be $10 OFF (must have Costco membership) just in time for the holiday meal prepping! It would also make a great gift idea!
