I save the pickling liquid from the jars of pickled cucumbers I buy at the supermarket and use it in a couple of different ways.
I slice up onions and put them in jar and top it off with extra white vinegar and give it a good shake and leave it in the back of the fridge for several weeks.
I use the liquid as a ready made salad dressing.
I never, ever throw it out.
Your dolls and clothes are very pretty. I like seeing you ladies work with cloth products.I was spending buying $2.49 fat quarters of fabric at Joann's. But I had the magical coupon that made them .70 each. Went from about $85 to $28 in one coupon.
I use the fat quarters for when I do a quilting project or mostly for doll clothes. Some of those I sell.
Thank you that is a good idea. We have a few sunflower plants that made it this year bugs got them but they survived. Can we just give them the seeds or do we have to get hulls off?I cook rice regularly and feed to my chickens. Also grow sunflower, oat and wheat fodder in large pans. Stretches out the feed bill. I can get a 50 # bag of whole wheat or whole oats for $15, and it lasts a long time when used for fodder. Sunflower, though, is more expensive.
I don't use my oven, I use an Air Fryer oven or a toaster oven most of the time. Seems like a good idea for single people cooking. I love to see your Insta Pot meals. I need to get to using my Insta Pot.How do I save money? Since the end of May, have only used my electric stove 4 times. Two times someone else cooked for me and used it. I use either my Instant Pot (especially for cooking bacon in the morning, fast) or my Induction Stovetop burner. Both are very energy efficient.
