Deep purple Concord grapes make a very flavorful homemade grape jelly. I’m sharing the lazy-cook’s way to make simple grape jelly without adding pectin. I’m even including the easiest way to preserve it longer-term by simple water-bath canning. Delicious, homemade and makes a great gift idea too.
I’ve been very pleased at how easy and inexpensive it is to make our own jerky at home. We use a mixture of ground meat, seasonings and ‘cure’. You can use either ground meat or strips of steak to make jerky. But we decided to make wild-game jerky using venison and elk.
I like to dehydrate fresh pumpkin. It’s so easy to do, y’all. And unlike storing pumpkin puree in the freezer, dehydrated pumpkin can set right on your pantry shelf in a sealed jar, it uses no additional energy to store.
