  1. I always make strawberry jam and its really easy 4 cups strawberries, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1/3c sugar. Combine all this in a pan and stir and heat for about 10 minutes crushing you strawberries as you do.

    In a side dish put cold water and 2 envelopes of geltin. When you berry mix is at a fast boil add this and stir until geltin is complete dissolved.
    Laddle into jars and now you have strawberry jam..... If you mix comes out runny like mine does sometimes it is still great for an ice cream topper.

  2. We love making fried green maters in the summer time.

    2 or 3 green tomatos, egg, flour, oil, salt n pepper

    Mix salt, pepper, and egg in bowl.
    Put flour in a plate.
    Slice your tomatos (Thin is best)

    Roll maters in flour, then your egg mixture, and again in the flour then fry until lightly browned and take up and place on a napkined plate to catch any grease.

You need Bushel of fresh broccoli( normally buy about 3 bushels of just heads), Cauliflower(one head), one red onion, pack of bacon, apple cider vinager, sugar, mayo, Bag of Shreaded Mild Chedder cheese.

    Cut Broccoli and Cauliflower in to bite sized peices, Fry bacon till crispy(set on paper towels to cool &degrease), Dice red onion (include in bowl with Broccoli & caulifower)

    mix Cup or so Mayo (4 table spoons vinegar/ add little bits of sugar to mayo/vinegar mix to taste pour over vegtables, add crumbled bacon & cheese put in fridge to cool... Serve .
