- 5 lb. potatoes, diced
- 10 or so carrots, scraped and sliced
- 1 bunch celery, diced or cut up
- 3 big onions, cut up
Put all of the above in a large kettle or roaster and mix well. Add to sterilized jars with 1/2 teaspoon canning salt to quart jars. Fill jars with cold water, remove bubbles with a knife, wipe jar tops and put on lids and covers. Process for 3 hours in boiling water bath. Then, when you're ready for soup or beet hash, cook you meat and dump a jar in the juice and meat and your soup's ready. OR for hash, just drain a jar, add beets and warm up in a fry pan with butter.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
