  • A New Toy and a new Change Coming

    7/11/2020 3:19:46 PM, by LSANDY7

    I enjoy making jams this time of year, but am finding the heat and humidity created in the kitchen just drains my energy level. I found an electric water bath canner at my local hardware store. It was expensive, but after using it for the first time today I can attest to loving it. We have 80+ de... Read more
