My to-do list from last time:
Continue to preserve peaches. Job Completed! I added 180 more peach puree cubes to my freezer! That’s all of our peaches from our trees for this year.
Dehydrate potatoes. I finally got started dehydrating them! Thus far I have added 2 pints of cubed, dehydrated potatoes to my pantry.
Can maple syrup. I . GOT . IT . DONE!!!! Can you believe it????? How lonnnnnnnng has this been on my to-do list …. too long! Sometimes it takes a little longer than we would like to get a job done, but if we preserve, we will get it done!
Order hawthorn berries to make hawthorn tincture. There are several herbs I need to order so maybe this will actually get done this week! I got this DONE too!
Make turmeric capsules … Didn’t get done!
Make vitamin capsules … Didn’t get done!
In Addition ….
We found slab bacon in 10 lb boxes on sale for $19.99 at Save-A-Lot. This made it $1.99/lb. The bacon was sliced nicely and wasn’t chopped up into ends and pieces. We were thrilled and purchased 2 boxes. We brought it home and divided it up into equal parts and froze it. I added eight 2.5 lb size packages to the freezer part of my pantry.
I also found extra virgin olive oil on sale for $5.49 per 34 fl oz bottles. We purchased 2 and added them to our pantry.
Someone gave us a GINORMOUS zucchini … it was over a foot long … I shredded it up, packaged it into 1 cup baggies then vacuum sealed 8 packages of 2 cups each and added them to the freezer part of my pantry. We'll use these when making squash patties or in baked goods.
Here’s my to-do list for this week:
Continue dehydrating potatoesMake turmeric capsules
Make vitamin capsules
That’s what I’ve done, how about you? What have you added to your pantry since we last talked?
