Be Prepared - July

I can't believe that it's July already! I hope you all enjoyed your 4th with fun and saftey. I've got about 3 weeks left before baby girl makes her appearance. This coming friday will be my last day of work. I'm looking forward to 9 weeks of paid vacation time to get ready and meet this new addition.

Well anyways, how did you did with your June food storage preparation? I have to be honest I didn't as well as should have but I did get a few items checked off, like sugar and jams.

This month's focus will be on fruits and fruit juices. You can do a couple of things when it comes to fruit.

You can can it, buy it already canned for you, or you can dehydrate it.

Canning - here is good site to get you started.

Buying it - look for sales at your local grocery stores. Usually during the Summertime some will put out a special to buy by the case.

Dehydrating - this form is good to make raisins, apricots and bananas. Here is a great blog on how to do it, b/c i'm not very good at it.

Here is July's full file for items to collect.
