A large part of my life is spent in the procurement and preparation of food. I’ve always wanted to say that. 😀 But seriously, if you think about it this has been the case for most of us since the dawn of time (unless you’re filthy rich and have a cook or you’re a bachelor who eats out a lot). As a stay-at-home mom it’s my main duty to use my husband’s paycheck wisely to feed my family nourishing food #feedthepeople.
I do A LOT of cooking but strangely I don’t create all too many recipes from scratch on my own. I do, however, have a few tried-and-true recipes I found on the internet that I love. Today I’m sharing those with you. I’ve made these recipes multiple times and they are always great. A lot of them are gluten free and all use real food ingredients.
I have no idea why I like canning so much. It’s stressful, takes a boat load of planning, I don’t garden, and I’m trying to limit my consumption of sugar anyway. But alas like a moth to a flame, I’m attracted.
It’s January 2017 so first things first- Happy New Year to you! It’s a new year and I’m already thinking about canning; I do not want to miss any veggie and fruit seasons this year. I’ve become a bit obsessed with canning even though I’ve only canned 4 times total in my life. They all have been with a water bath canner. I’m still too scared of my pressure canner but maybe this year that will change.
We finally did it. We dispatched, dressed, and cooked our first homegrown rabbit. Actually, it was Brian who did all that. I just watched. Barely. We did this months back before we moved to our new homestead but things got crazy busy and I forgot to tell you about it.
Are you still learning how to garden and can’t quite grow enough veggies to feed your family yet? Would you like to start eating organic, local food but don’t know where to find it? Well, I have good news for you.
