Ever put a buffalo into canning jars? I just found out that's what I'll be doing tomorrow. For 7 years we've been caretakers of a small herd of buffalo on a neighboring property for an out-of-state landowner. He started hinting this spring that he's about ready to be done with them, and now he's decided to butcher them all off. He asked us to be ready at 7 tomorrow morning when he and his brother get here, and asked if we could handle a huge pile of meat with such short notice. Gee, let me think about that....hmmm....well.... Golly, hundreds of pounds of organic buffalo meat? I didn't have to think about it, I said yes when he was barely done speaking. By the way, the buffalo have escaped their 6' high, 40-acre electric fence again. Our son and some of the other guys on his fire department are out there somewhere in the woods trying to haze them back this way. When the sheriff's department called a couple hours ago the buffalo were about 4 miles south of here harassing cars on a county road. We'll probably get another buffalo hide out of the deal, too. My husband has two and I have one, but mine is special. It belongs to a memorable bull we called "little satan"!
