First my week began by making Applesauce. I had a bunch of apples off a friends tree, so I made applesauce. Then on Tuesday I taught a strawberry jam class for my ward and a couple friends. Then Wed not much except clean up the mess from Mon and Tue. Then on Thursday I made banana bread and muffins, dehydrated some herbs and prepared for Friday.
My friend Erin will be coming down on Friday and we will canning more stuff. We will be doing: Vegetables Strawberry Jam Mixed Berry Jam Grape Jelly Applesauce Jalopenos
I love this time of year, but it is also a very busy time.
Thanks to a water leak in my ice maker I will be canning 30 lbs of hamburger today. I am excited because I needed to do it, just been procrastinating.
I will also be doing 40 lbs of chicken an Friday. It is a good week for my food storage meat supply.
**On a side note, we will be getting Cherries down out fo Utah in about 3 weeks. We should get prices later this week. We are featuring the Cherry Pitter for 21.99 ($3 off) and a couple other items to go with the cherries and other fruit we will be getting throughout the summer. Please feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more information.
Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions about canning or if you want to learn, I often can with people at my house so they can learn, just ask!!!!
I am originally from Ohio where I learned most of the valuable life lessons that I am now trying to pass on to my children. My parents are one of the biggest influences in my life. I feel that it is very important to be prepared and also to take care of the next generation by preparing them for the future. I am a strong believer that you are in control of your future and you need to be prepared for anything that might come your way.
