Added “BabyStep 8: Fruits and Vegetables” to Main Topics

We added another BabyStep! Check out Step 8: Fruits and Vegetables to learn about adding produce into your food storage and how to preserve it. This is one of our favorite steps as it incorporates some of the “lost arts” such as gardening and canning.

Sneak preview: Watch for a post later this week showing how Jodi has been working on step 8!

    Traci – You are in luck. My cousin runs a gardening blog called mysquarefootgarden.net and it is the method I have used for growing veggies the past few years. She just recently posted a spaghetti sauce recipe … Here is the link straight to it http://www.mysquarefootgarden.net/oh-so-easy-tomato-sauce/
    So you’ll have to try it out! We will be talking more about gardening once we have our core foods under control, so stay tuned as the growing season approaches next spring 🙂

    Yay! I have fallen in love with canning over the last few years: peaches, pears, apple sauce, apple pie filling, dill pickles, banana pepper rings… My challenge this coming year is spaghetti sauce. Anyone have a good recipe? Also, I want to grow as much of what I can as I can. Would love your tips or any good links! Thanks for your site. I am really enjoying it in Indiana.

    Thank you for your wonderful site! I have learned SO much from reading your articles.:) I’ve been a bit apprehensive about canning, so I’m looking forward to the post about this subject later in the week.
