      Bountiful Harvest - Make your own Groceries

      One of the best ways to save money is to make your own groceries. Chances are, if you look in your own cupboards or pantry right now you have a few factory canned items such as tomatoes, jams or jellies and canned fruit. Not only are these items heavily laden with salt and sugar, they are so over processed they no longer have decent flavor.
      Here are several of my favorite home canning recipes, step by step, with photographs.
      MYO: Watermelon Rind Pickles- these delightful pickles taste a bit like cinnamon apples, so much so that my son didn't believe me when I told him they were made from a watermelon!
      MYO Zesty Fiesta Salsa - Choose from 3 levels of Spice- Mild, Tongue Tingler and Who Needs a Liver?
      MYO Zucchini Relish- aka Gwam's Relish. This is the recipe that my kids look forward to every summer. You'd never think kids would beg for their veggies- but with this one, they sure do!
      MYO Mustard Pickles- Tangy Mustard pickles that you'll crave every year
      Super Easy Homemade Dill Pickles - this is a quick recipe that requires no skill, it's perfect for teaching kids how to can, or for shocking the relatives that didn't know you could cook
      How to Prepare Peaches for Canning or Freezing - a do it yourself guide to preparing the summer's bounty without losing flavor or freshness
      MYO Harvest Peach Jam- a fragrant blend of peaches and spices that will melt in your mouth. Excellent on toast, biscuits, nut breads, crackers and more. For a quick hors d'oeuvre cut a block of cream cheese in half on a small plate and pour a Jar of Peach jam on top. Serve with crackers.
      MYO Peach Delight - This thick sauce is perfect on Pancakes, Ice Cream, warm biscuits, as a topping for pound cake, or in filled cookies.
      Make Ahead Peach Pie Filling - Enjoy a fresh peach pie any time of year with this easy to make ahead recipe

      Re: Aging Skin Fighter

      I can't wait to try it! Do you clean skin first? Is there a good skin cleanser to make?

      as much as I don't mind seeing a video autoplay, it does get annoying, especially when I'm viewing via iphone! Thank you as always! :)

      Re: Repurposing Old Items into New Things!

      That is a great idea. I love to bake and use them all of the time but they can be expensive. I may have to make my own.

      Re: tip to get rid of ants

      I have used Borax to get rid of ants and roaches.
      I just sprinkle it around the edges of the insides of the cabinets and they all just disappear.
      I don't mind using it because it isn't harmful...

      Re: How to make arm and hammer washing powder.

      Could someone tell me if this dissolves in cold water?
      I only wash with cold so if it doesn't then I can't use it. I won't be saving any money if I have to use warm or hot water.
      Thanks for any...
