Looking Back…ish…

Hey All, So as I’m sure you’ve noticed there haven’t been any updates since Tuesday and for that I apologize. I also apologize that there probably won’t be any updates next week either.

Canning Basics – The Tools

Canning always appealed to me, even when I was little. I’d read books like the Little House on the Prairie books or all of the Anne of Green Gables books and think of how exciting it must have been to make elderberry wine or have all these lovely, jewel-toned jars of home-made jams and jellies…
