Homemade fixin’s for family

September 15, 2013
By Patty Christopher , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Are you busy yet? This season of the year comes on with such a rush that it is hard to take time to enjoy it! Those who can and/or freeze food for the coming months are counting jars to see if there is enough of each fruit or vegetable to last the winter. It would be easier of one had a menu for each meal for the coming months - just count the number of the ingredients - but who in the world has the time or energy to do that! So, we estimate or just can and freeze everything in the garden until it is gone or frosted, whichever comes first or we get tired of messing with it all. Food put up at home is better for one's family but it does have a heavy labor price. At least, one knows what is put into each jar and there is nothing one cannot pronounce and it is not loaded with preservatives. If we eat store bought food all our lives, I really see no need for embalmment when we pass on! We shouldn't rot or mold!!!!
