    Jellies, Jams and Conserves, Oh My!

    I only use the powdered stuff and the low or no sugar type. I just can't bring myself to put more sugar than fruit in my jams and jellies. I do however use the liquid Certo for my pepper jelly because the finished product actually looks better.

    What did you do to be/become more self-reliant today?

    I have been bartering with friends for produce that I don't have. I let farmers use my parking lot and forklift to unload produce to sell and I have been given 5 bushels of peaches ( not all at once) 1 bushel pears and 1 bushel Jonagold apples. All but the apples have been canned. I traded a...

    Got my broccoli, kale, cabbage and cauliflower started. They are up and looking good. In this zone 5 we had a Mother's Day blizzard snapping the trees last year so as much as I wanted to rush it I didn't.

    Sufficient Self's Bible Study Group

    I haven't been able to even deal with much lately. My family got the news that my little brother killed himself. Still reeling from the shock and asking for prayers to help ease the hurt. Putting myself in God's hands!

    Spent the morning in the garden and still picked a few ripe tomatoes, unheard of for the middle of November. There are plenty of green ones and everything is getting gleaned. The storm forecast looks ugly and freezing for the next week with temps 18 degrees at night so no amount of covering is...

    Those are great ideas. A poster with detailed instructions should leave nothing to question. And the deposit insures that it will get cleaned either way. :thumbsup I had also tossed around the idea of freeze drying equipment but the prices for the units are crazy expensive.

    To answer Your question from so long ago Britesea I was thinking that I could get my Cottage Foods license and market my home canned items at the Farmers Market for extra income. I already sell garden produce at the market and to do anything else I have to be licensed thru the state and have a...

    Black Walnuts!

    Oh I wish I had nuts to trade, but this year I lucked out and traded tomatoes for fresh pistachios. Never had the fresh ones and they are heavenly. The thin outer husk smells wonderful sort of citrus like. Loved them!
