So Much To Share!


Hi everyone, I can’t believe summer is over and kids are back to school.
I had a wonderful summer with a few trips and a lot of experimenting in the kitchen. If you know me, you know I’m addicted to preserving food. Not only have I been making new recipes for canning, but I have also been learning more about fermenting. Which leads me to a small problem. I have too many jars!
