Making your own food is awesome!!!!
Then due to an over supply of tomatoes and cucumber, I decided to do some canning. So by now I have canned lots of tomatoes and made 3 different types of pickles. We opened our first pickled batch today and my son LOVED it!! that is what I called success! I also did some freezing of fresh tomatoes and some tomato sauce made entirely from the garden bounty :)
A trip to Michigan and a close encounter with some raspberry bushes lead me to make some Jam. Thanks to an old recipe from a friend we also now have home made strawberry jam for my next triffles!
A trip to Wisconsin got me into dairy - I have just finished my first batch of home made yogurt and I am tackling cheese later in the week - Mozzarella is the goal.
I LOVE this. truly do.
