Roasted Pork In Parchment!

Eating Succulent Pork !

We eat a lot of pork , more  then any other meat.  So finding another way to cook it and make it delicious and moist is something that I am always looking for.

I swear by parchment paper for all kinds of cooking so I have a ready supply of it always.

With this recipe for you can add any spices that you like.  It doesn’t have to be specific just what ever your family likes to eat.

This is one of the most simple ways that I have seen to cook a roast.  Totally hands off, once you have seasoned and wrapped it up walk away for 12 hours.

It will give you time to make homemade hamburger buns to use for  sandwiches for the next day.  Nothing better then homemade bread.

This meal would be good for  a great Sunday brunch, with lots of left overs for later on through the day.  Everyone wants to be relaxed and lazy for their day off.

So hopefully if you do this recipe it will be one of your favorite meals.

Baked Bacon Done Perfect!

Making The Best BLT Sandwich With Perfect Baked Bacon!

We eat baked Bacon, Tomato and Lettuce sandwiches on a regular basis and have started to make them with baked bacon.  What a difference.  I like the taste of baked bacon much better then fried.

And health wise it is probably much better for you, getting rid of all the fat that it would otherwise sit in.

It takes longer to cook it, frying is a quicker method but you will not be sorry that you baked it.  The time is well worth it.

You can use this for any bacon dish, breakfast, lunch or supper. We started doing it this way for our breakfasts because we had so many people in the house that I figured it would get more cooked faster.  So starting to bake it was quite by accident.  Now I wouldn’t cook it any other way.

Another plus is not grease splattering everywhere.  Much easier clean up.  Tin foil into garbage and whip out the pan for excess fat, wash in soapy water and its all good.

This bacon would work well on all sorts of sandwiches and burgers because it is totally flat no curls or odd shapes.

Homemade Salad Dressing’s!!

Make Your Own Dressing’s Made Easy And Simple!

Nothing better then making your own dressing’s for your salads or sandwiches.  I have one that I make all the time and simple love.  We put it on our burgers to.  Makes me hungry just thinking about it.

I have a recipe that I am going to be doing next week.  Last fall I picked wild high bush cranberries and they have been patiently waiting for me to make my jelly with the juice I then take the pulp, remove all the seeds they have a single seed in them. After that I make cranberry ketchup it is incredible.  I am going to take pictures and will up date the results with a blog and the recipe. There is nothing like it that I have ever tasted.

There are so many great dressing recipes out there here are just five of the hundred.  All made in minutes with simple great ingredients most of us have in the fridge.

My husband just loves Balsamic vinegar so I may have to try one of the recipes here that she has with Balsamic. He even runs his meat through the excess that is left after he has eaten his salad.

Canning Pie Filling!!

Canning Strawberry Rhubard Pie Filling!!

Canning your pie filling makes for some mighty darn fine pies when the winter sets in.  The fresh taste is captured in the process so all the flavours will be there.  Close your eyes as you eat and summer is there.

With the price of pie fillings it is also a great way to save money by doing your own.  If you don’t have the fruit in your yard you can buy the in season fruit and do it that way.  I have my own strawberry patch coming and a huge amount of rhubarb in my yard.  My raspberry patch is just dripping with soon to be raspberries, I can hardly wait.

Make sure you get all your canning supplies ready before you start to make sure that you have everything that you need.  Nothing worse then getting half way through and have to  stop and go get something.

Get all your fruit ready and you are ready to go.

Canning Water Go Figure!!

Canning water who would have thought that there was a need.  But there is and it is a very good idea.  You do not need a lot but some if a very smart idea for emergency.  It last for a very long time.

It is a very simple process and takes very little time.  No real prep work because is no cutting, dicing and slicing.

Also in most cases if you loose your power you loose your water supply so it may sound a little silly but if you think about it it’s not a bad idea for emergencies.

Almost everyone have jars sitting around collecting dust and other unwanted critters. Wash them fill them with water can them and you have a safe supply of water.

Lots of times I don’t have enough jars to fill either my water bath or canner so why not fill the vacant hole with a jar of water.

Just make sure that you date them like you would anything that you can so that you can rotate the dates of use.

Canning Jam Made Simple!

Canning Jam With No Pectin !

Canning jam the easy way.  Three ingredients is all it takes to make lovely yummy jam.  I have never put pectin in any of my jams I let nature take its course.

We also do not like our jam real sweet so I always cut back on the amount of sugar that I use.  We like it tarty and the real fruity flavour.

I have never made jam with the fruit that this lady is using.  It is not a real abundant fruit in our area it is like a specialty fruit and real expensive. What we do use is strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and lots of wild berries like Saskatoon’s and Huckleberries. We have other wild berries but they are not as readily picked as the others. I have never found the need for adding pectin.

Doing it this way is one of the simplest methods for getting your fruit looked after and stored for the winter months.

Another thing I really like is the no fuss way she explains all the different steps you have to take.  Straight and to the point.

Canning Fish!

Canning My Summer’s Fish!

Thought I had better can my fish from this summer.  Don’t want to get it freezer burnt.

This is just a little bit of what I need to do. But it is fun.  My husband and I did it together.  He catches and I do the canning usually.

I add a little bit of salt to each jar and the fish, lid them and pressure cook them for 90 minutes.

We got almost twenty jars when we were done, so that will do us for a while.  Don’t have to buy fish for sandwiches or soups.

Can’t wait for summer and fishing season to start again going to can more this year.

Next project wild cranberry jelly and ketchup it is the best.  I picked about two gallons this past fall time to get them in a jar.

This Will Show You Great Recipes To Help The Weight Loss Cause!

Everyone of these recipes are so easy and they look delicious.  The ie cream one is so simple its silly.  And I think the flavour would be incredible.  You can use any fruit that you like to do this with.

I have made my own ice cream before but never like this, so I am going to try it for dessert today.  We are eating low carb foods and this will work fine for that.  Fruit is good carbs so it will be a great dessert.

I also use a natural sugar derived from birch trees so adding a little sweetener if needed would be just fine.  I have also made my own vanilla and its just about ready.  It needs to sit for at least another month then it should be ready to use.  I have a great recipe for that which I shall put up when it gets done and bottled in pretty bottles.
