How does your winter garden grow?

After a couple of months I went into the garden to see if I could pull up the last of the carrots.  We have not yet had a hard freeze here (a little dust of snow, but the ground hasn't frozen yet). …Continue

Canning Tuna
9 Replies

I have about 25 pounds of tuna in my freezer that will need to be thawed and canned.  The recipe in my pressure cooker manual calls for baking the tuna first and then canning.  Other recipes I have…Continue

"I definitely will try it.  I don't care for plain yellow mustard unless a recipe calls for it as a seasoning. And we prefer the stronger mustards.  I just can't handle pure heat.  So we are anxious to try it!"

"I didn't realize making mustard was this easy.  I cannot wait to try this.  Does the mustard powder make it spicy hot? "

"I usually use half and half, organic when I can afford it, but when my children visit they insist on flavored creamers.  I wonder if adding something like vanilla or coconut extract would flavor this?  In any event, this is great and I…"

"I made flour by drying the grain in the oven all day (I don't have a dehydrator) at 170 degrees.  We then pulverized it into flour in a food processor.  The next day I made homemade noodles by mixing with whole grain white…"

Spent Grain Recipes

My husband and son brew their own beer and until recently were tossing the spent grain.  My son found a recipe for natural dog treats using the grain and we have mixed up a couple batches. Of course the dogs love them.  But I can only have so many dog treats on hand (and I do share). Which started me thinking:  why are we wasting these grains? A little internet research brought up a few recipes.  I have some grain drying in the oven today (and several bags in the freezer) and will grind it into…See More

How does your winter garden grow?

After a couple of months I went into the garden to see if I could pull up the last of the carrots.  We have not yet had a hard freeze here (a little dust of snow, but the ground hasn't frozen yet).  I had some of the bigggest carrots I have ever seen!  We planted a Nantes so they were short (because of our rocky ground) but probably four inches thick! So much for wintering over! I had also left the last crop of radishes to try to use the pods and let them go to seed.  I had radishes growing the…See More
