Video-Canning Budget Bacon!

Help Your Food Budget By Canning  Bacon Bits And Pieces!

By the looks of the bacon in the boxes it is just as good as the regularlity packed bacon just not conformed to all the sizes that are in the more expensive packages.  So canning the bits and pieces can be used for regular frying plus in lots of other dishes that you can make.

Such as baked beans, bacon and egg dishes.  There are multiple dishes that the canned bacon would come in handy for.

 You will have this canning for an emergency, in case of power outages or other natural mishaps that can occur.

Also you will have total control over the food that your family is eating.  No additives unless you put them in yourself.

This way of buying bacon is also good for anyone who is one a fixed income or a family on a very tight budget. Anyone can benefit from buying their bacon in this form. The savings are incredible.

The bacon bits and pieces may not be in the normal bacon area of your Super Market but if you ask the clerks should be able to steer you in the right direction. I know at my store it is in the freezer section.

Grama’s Catsup Recipe!

Make your own ketchup , why not you can control the amount of sugar or you can use a good sugar substitute and you and your kids can eat as much as you like.

I use a real good sugar substitute in my foods. It is derived from the birch tree it is called Xylitol .  Looks like sugar, tastes like sugar with fewer calories.  But there are other sweeteners out there with no calories so it is all about personal choices.

Learning How To Dehydrate Oranges, Lemons And Onions!

Wash, slice and dry.  Sound simple and easy ?  It is , I love dehydrating.  I have about six trays and have dried all different kinds of fruits and vegetables.

I like doing green, red and yellow pepper then I have then right at my finger tips when I am making soups and stews.  I make a lot of them in the winter.

The fruit I like then I make my own trail mix and add some of the dried fruits.  Making your own is much cheaper then buying it.  When we go camping it comes along and is great for a snack if you are out fishing or just hiking.

I have even made my own Jerky with my dehydrator.
