A Beginners Guide to Home Canning & Food Preserving: Recipes, Jams, Marmalades, Jellies, Chutneys, Relishes Plus More

A Beginners Guide to Home Canning & Food Preserving: Recipes, Jams, Marmalades, Jellies, Chutneys, Relishes Plus More... (Simple Living) was free when I wrote this.
It is an undeniable pleasure for the modern individual to look at the work accomplished by his or her own hands with a sense of pride and ownership. While humans will no longer generally starve to death if we don’t preserve food at home (as we once would have done) we still enjoy the self-reliance that doing so brings.

A Beginners Guide to Home Canning & Food Preserving is for anyone wanting to learn the art of Home Canning. The book cover such topics as:

History of Food Preservation
Definitions of Various Food Preservation Methods
Food Safety and Safety Precautions
Sourcing Tools, Equipment and Food
Altitude Adjustments
Water Bath Canning Details & Pressure Canning Details
Recipes Including Jams, Jellies, Butters, Chutneys, Relishes, Pickles and Meat Fish and Poultry

If you are an old hand at food preserving and canning you may even find a new recipe included in book.

Although the canning process is the most labor intensive procedure, all methods promote a sense of pride, accomplishment, and self-reliance. There’s nothing like opening the pantry or freezer door on a frigid winter’s day, where the snow - already up to the window sills - is coming down so hard you can’t see your mailbox, and finding row upon row of neatly labeled produce and meats and remembering once again that if the world ended outside your door, your family would still eat well.

Prepper Tips for Babies and Children

Emergency situations and natural disasters are never picture-perfect situations. When emergencies strike, we all need to be prepared to survive until the crisis is over. But, there are special circumstances when we have to put the needs of others before our own. When it comes to babies and children, they will turn to the adults around them for survival. That's why there are special preparations that need to be made for preppers who have children in the home. These tips are also valuable for businesses, such as schools and daycare centers, who serve children. These essential items should to be included in your emergency survival kit to ensure that babies and children have what they need:

Emergency Prepper Tips for Babies

Babies have unique needs. These needs must be met, even during a crisis situation. Here are some tips for preparing an emergency kit for babies:
  • Formula – Even if your baby is breastfed, exclusively, your kit should include formula for your baby. During an emergency, many women go through stress. Some even become dehydrated. Both of these factors can affect a mother's ability to breastfeed. Be sure to store formula with a long shelf life, such as canned formulas or powdered formula.
  • Diapers – It's always wise to store extra diapers, just in case. Emergency preparedness experts recommend cloth diapers for emergency kits. They take up less storage space than boxes of disposable diapers. They can also be washed out by hand to be re-used over and over again.
  • Clothing – Your storage should contain full outfits for each baby to last three or more days. It's best to store various sizes, just in case your baby goes through a growth spurt after your kit has been put together.
  • Baby Medication – As you know, your baby can't take medications made for adults. During a disaster, your baby may feel your stress. This could lead to minor colds, allergies, even stomach aches. Be sure you have baby-grade medications stored just in case your baby gets sick during an emergency.
  • Baby Carrier – As soon as a crisis hits, your first instinct will be to grab your baby. In a matter of seconds, you'll realize that you need to grab many other things, such as your emergency kits. It will be much easier to handle all of this at once if you can simply attach your baby to your body and keep moving. Have a convenient carrier ready for this purpose. Then, your hands will be free to grab other things as you and your baby run out the door.

Emergency Prepper Tips for Children

There are two major additions to your preparedness kit that must be included if there are children in your home:
  1. Emergency Food – Children can be notorious for being picky eaters. In a crisis situation, this can become a very serious problem. If your emergency food storage is filled with foods your child doesn't like, they may refuse to eat any of it. This can cause malnutrition, low-energy, low-blood sugar, and various other health risks. Be sure to store foods that your children actually enjoy eating. This will ensure that they get the vitamins, minerals and caloric intake they need to stay healthy during the crisis.
  2. Entertainment – Many parents may not feel like entertainment is essential during an emergency. However, a major tragedy can cause stress in children. Having entertainment that can help them escape from the stress caused by the disaster can help them maintain mentally. A good prepper should store a variety of games and puzzles, as well as other forms of entertainment for children.

Found Another Use For FoodSaver!

We homeschool and I am always printing things off. Some of it I want to keep , but I have no laminating machine. So I got the idea this morning to take and put the items that I want to keep, like times table, in a glad bag and then heat seal it shut. Now we have our things in a protective cover and can be kept for good. Make sure it is in there good and flat. No wrinkles. That would make it hard to read the things inside. You could do this with just about anything that you do not want to get wet. Maybe even put all of your important papers in a bigger bag and heat seal it shut so they can't get wet. I have a lot of ideas for this now. Make our flash cards that we use a lot last longer. This would have to be a lot more frugal than getting a machine just for laminating. Don't you have to get special plastic sheets for them and everything? I am all about being frugal!

Food Storage Recipe - Homemade Soft Pretzel Valentines

Make these for the kiddos instead of them eating all of that Valentine candy and chocolate. These are better for them and fun. Make these pretzels into heart shapes and it will be a hit for the whole house.

Homemade Soft Pretzel Valentines

1 package of yeast

1 1/2 cup of warm water

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon salt

4 cups of flour

1 beaten egg

Coarse salt for sprinkling on top

Combine the yeast, water, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Let sit about 10 minutes until it foams. Stir in the flour. Knead on a table until the dough is smooth. Divide into about 8 - 10 equal sized pieces and then Shape the dough into tube by rolling with both hands. Shape each tube into a heart shape , squeezing the ends together in the middle. Place each one into boiling water that is at a rolling boil for no more than 30 seconds and take out with a slotted spoon. Put them on a baking sheet and brush them with the beaten egg. The egg helps them to get to that nice golden "pretzel" color. Sprinkle the tops with the coarse salt. Bake for about 12 - 15 minutes , but WATCH THEM VERY CLOSELY - THEY CAN GET VERY BROWN ON TOP VERY QUICKLY.

Serve! Give them to everybody on your Valentines list. Great idea for something to take to your kid's class. Healthier than cupcakes, cookies, candy, and chocolate.

Easy recipe to make your own mints. This has been a favorites of ours the last couple of months. The grocery store had cream cheese on sale 10 for $10.00 and I stocked up on it. You can freeze it.

I used to make homemade candy and chocolates a lot and have hundreds of candy molds.

Basic Mints

1 package of cream cheese

2 pound package of powdered sugar

Knead these together with your hands while adding the flavoring and food coloring. Flavor and color them any way you like them. I use green for the spearmint. You can make them pink for peppermint. And so on. Whichever is your favorite type of mint. Easy , quick, and good. Store these in a nice dry container after they set up.

How to Sprout Raw Food

How to Sprout Raw Food: Grow an Indoor Organic Garden with Wheatgrass, Bean Sprouts, Grain Sprouts, Microgreens, and More was free for the Kindle when I wrote this post. Grow Your Own Raw Food Anywhere! Would you like to grow some of your own food this year? Indoors? With no sunlight or soil? At any time of the year and at all times of the year? Sprouts allow you to do all that and more. In fact, you can grow all the vegetables your body needs (plus all the protein as well) in an area that's no bigger than your microwave oven. I grow sprouts on top of my refrigerator, harvesting baskets of fresh, raw food every week without even going outside. Growing sprouts is simple and it's cheap. Sprouts can provide you with the power-packed nutrition your body needs at a fraction of the price of store bought food. You can save money while eating right. There's no dirt, no pests, and no weeding required. Raw Food Salads, Sandwiches, Cereals, and More! This short guide will teach you how to grow sprouts and enjoy eating them. If you like salads, I'll show you how to make delicious bowlfuls with tasty mild or spicy sprouts. If you enjoy eating cereal for breakfast, try some sprouted grains with natural malt sugars that nourish your body and taste far better than boxed cereals. Need to lose a few pounds? Simply eating a few more sprouted beans will keep you feeling fuller and eating fewer carbs. Toss some bean sprouts, lentil sprouts, or pea sprouts into your next rice or pasta dish; they make great burgers as well. You'll find that your body absorbs the protein better when the beans are sprouted, which usually reduces flatulence as well. All this nutrition, protein, and fiber will have you shedding a few pounds in a hurry. Topics Include:

1. Superfood Sprouts Cheap, Easy to Grow, Provide Year-Round Nutrition

Eat More Raw Foods for Better Health Raw food contains many nutrients that are lost in the cooking process. Our prehistoric ancestors ate most of their food raw until around 12,000 years ago. The human body has not yet adapted to the large quantities of cooked and processed foods we feed ourselves. This is a big reason for the high rates of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and other chronic ailments: we are poisoning ourselves with so much over-cooked, over-processed foods.

People who switch to raw food diets (or simply include some more raw food in their diets) experience many benefits, such as weight loss and great energy levels. This book will help you increase the quantity of raw food in your diet from sprouts, including salad and sandwich sprouts, wheatgrass, microgreens, and sprouted beans, nuts, seeds, and grains (which most people can digest well without any cooking).

Learn how to grow some of your fresh food indoors, in a small space, with no direct light, and no soil (except microgreens). Pick this one up. You won't be disappointed!
