I’m consuming a couple of tablespoons of honey containing ragweed pollen daily to help combat my allergies. But it takes so long using the honey dipper to drizzle 2 tablespoons worth each day. And I was making such a mess trying to spoon it from the jar instead.
So I tried pouring it gently from the jar.
Luckily I’ve found an awesome solution. Come check out this Homestead Hack.
I was baking homemade blueberry muffins for a Sibling Vacation recently. I typically make jumbo-sized muffins for RancherMan. But this time I used my smaller muffin-sized tin because there would be several of us in attendance. It’s easier to eat two small muffins than to waste part of a larger one, ya know?
So I whipped up my Blueberry Muffin batter, placed my silicone muffin pan on a cookie sheet & filled the muffin cups. But there was still about 4 muffins worth of batter remaining.
Do I overfill the muffin cups? Do I bake this dozen and then refill 4 of the muffin cups and bake them separately? What a waste! Ugh, what’s a girl to do?
We’ve all probably done it – rinsing out remaining fat and letting it go down the drain. A quick flip of the garbage-disposal switch and the greasy problem is gone. Right?
I’ve written before about how I’ve discovered how the problem Is NOT Gonewhen we flush things through our kitchen sink pipes.
I’m not casting stones here. I spent plenty of my younger years flushing things down the sink, from plate scrapings to burnt-on food. And yes, the fat too. I figured if I used hot water it would simply flush that fat away safely.
But I’ve learned a lot since then. I now know you should never flush grease or fat down the sink.
The question is… how do you dispose of it? Don’t worry, it’s easy – check out this Homestead Hack.
Don’t you hate to have a narrow-neck jar that you just can’t reach with a bottle brush to clean? I’ve often wondered how you could effectively clean those wonderful but odd-shaped bottles & jars.
You see, my sun tea is always brewed in a repurposed salsa jar. It’s the perfect glass jar to use, partially because it’s hourglass shaped.
That shape makes it much easier to grip and safely carry to the picnic table outside to brew our sun tea.
But although I love the shape of the jar, it does make it very difficult to clean. So I sat out to find a good way to get the tea stains out for a crystal clear glass jar, ready to make sun tea again & again.
