Jen’s Honey Strawberry Freezer Jam

Posted by Hallee on May 19, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, Preserving, Recipes, sauces & spreads

I’ve known Jen since we were pregnant with our almost 5-year-olds. She is the crock-pot recipe queen to me, and a very dear friend. I often wished we lived closer than the few hundred miles that separate us, because seeing her a few times a year just isn’t enough.

Here is her first recipe for our blog – but I hope it won’t be her last. I intend to talk her into a regular crockpot column here at Hallee the Homemaker!

Gobble Gobble

Posted by Hallee on Aug 27, 2010 in Budgeting, Hallee's Galley, Housekeeping, Preserving, Stewardship

Several months ago, our local Kroger had turkeys on sale for 59¢ a pound. I checked with Heather at Couponning 101 if that was a good deal, because I typically just shop for meat and staples at the commissary. She told me it was, so I bought two of them.

Honey Sweetened Grape Jelly with Homemade Apple Pectin

Pectin is found in under ripe food and is a substance that will jell fruit juice when combined with sweeteners. I’m not all that crazy about growing my own fruit, being careful about the source of the food I buy, carefully preparing to preserve such fruit — then having to preserve it with a box of some Sure-Jel that came off of the Wal-Mart shelf. So, I researched into how to make my own pectin.

Perfectly Preserved Peach Pie Filling

Posted by Hallee on Oct 1, 2009 in Desserts, Hallee's Galley, Preserving, Recipes

I spent the day canning pears and peaches. The peaches were for my sister. She had a peach tree last year that would not quit, and when I was visiting this past weekend, she sent me home with seven gallons of frozen chopped peaches, with the only request that some of the preserves made be jelly because she doesn’t like chunks on her toast.

I shredded, chopped, diced, seeded, sliced, mixed, froze, canned until I could do no more.

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Mrs. B

Posted by Hallee on Aug 16, 2009 in Hallee's Galley, Preserving

So, I learned something new about pumpkins today. It cost me a lot of time and effort to learn it, but I guess it’s the lessons that cost you that stick with you
