Being Frugal by Canning and Preserving

We have been busy storing nuts for the winter. Well, not really...But the comparison is just.

We have been freezing corn, making chow-chow, bread and butter pickles, freezing eggplant and green peppers and green beans.

Come winter, we are going to be sitting pretty.

I love the internet because you can just look up your recipes!
Its awesome!

Here are some of the web pages that helped me.

You can find all kinds of canning helps-just google it!

Happy Canning!
