Family Homesteading & Off the Grid Blog Hop #36

family homesteading off the grid blog hop

The colors around the homestead have exploded, with our sugar maples, ash, white birch and oaks painting a bright and cheerful splash across our days. Crisp air reminds us of our canning responsibilities, and so far, we have put up all the apples, peaches and ripe tomatoes. All we have left is about 6 gallons of green tomatoes.

We are dedicated to not letting them go to waste and have been working our way through various recipes. What we've learned is that we can use green toms just as we would tomatillos, so it's salsa verde, enchilada sauce and straight canning for fried green tomatoes for later this winter.

The best part is the time we spend together in the kitchen, getting ready for the snows that are just around the corner. Our days have been outlined with a bit of work in the morning, then coming together over the canning equipment. What better way to spend time with those we love? 

Have a wonderful day:)

!!!Featured Post from Last Week!!!

Our featured blog post from last week is from Kathi over at Oak Hill Homestead. We have always wanted to try our hand at soap making, but seem to find reasons to put it off. Yet, our education continues and Kathi's article is a great walk-through for the beginner. Take some time and read her post- it will certainly feed your curiosity.
