With about 25 years of canning experience under my belt, I am proud to say that my efficiency, speed and neatness has improved. alot.
DIY Guy requested peach crisp
I wanted to try a new peach salsa recipe
There's still a lug of pears ripening in my laundry room -- I 'spect they will be ripe enough to "put up" by Thursday. I hope so -- because I have wedding flowers to do on Friday and Saturday!
With all the fruit and tomatoes in my kitchen a fool-proof Fruit Fly catcher is top priority.
If you struggle with Fruit Flies in your kitchen (and who doesn't?) give this a try:
Gather up some
apple cider vinegar
a small jar - with a lid
I like using a small jelly jar, but any
kind of jar with a lid will work -- recycle!
pour some cider vinegar in the jar
Fruit Flies can't resist the smell of cider vinegar
add a few drops of dish soap
the dish soap makes the vinegar sticky
and keeps the flies IN the jar
Punch holes in your jar lid and fasten it.
I used big nail from DIY Guy's workshop
to pound the holes in the canning jar lid.
Gabby is wondering if I could make her a squirrel catcher -- I told her SHE is the squirrel catcher!
