We all know grocery store prices on vegetables, fruits and meat have been going up at a steady level. Lately we have been hearing about the high prices for cauliflower and other vegetables are going to be going up, up, up as well.
When Cauliflower is being sold for $8 a head (and higher in some areas) it is time to get serious about reducing that grocery store bill!
So, are you thinking about putting in a bit of a garden this year to save some money?
We are growing lots of root crops this year – beets, carrots, potatoes and of course garlic.
We’ll be storing a lot of it in our cold room; the carrots in soil, the potatoes in paper bags and the beets will be canned and set on the shelves.
I’ll be in need of some great recipes and tips for cooking homestead style. Simpler, healthier and cheaper; sounds good to me!
One of the several cookbooks I’ve been looking through lately is Homestead Cooking with Carol .
It’s a great resource with many recipes, tips and tricks for reducing time (a lot of time) in the kitchen, yet feeding your family healthy and wholesome food.
Carol has done a fantastic job of putting together all kinds of information you will appreciate and use often.
Ever wondered about cooking wild game? Perhaps you have a hunter in the family?
Maybe the money going out is more than the money coming in and hunting your own meat is a necessity.
Hunting wild game can be a huge money saver – just add up how much you are spending on meat every month. Now think about reducing that by doing the work yourself.
The savings will be huge! You will want to know how to cook moose or deer and what recipes to make from the meat.
If you raise broiler chickens at your place, here is where you can get the recipes for delicious chicken dishes. Would you use the feet from the birds?
I never would, until Carol wrote about why to use them and how. The feet make delicious stock which can then be canned to use in cooking all year round.
Here’s a list of just some of the book contents:
- How to plan meals, complete with instructions and downloadable worksheets
- Want 5 easy choices for side dishes that you can pull right out of your pantry?
- One section on making complete meals in jars
- How to get 18 meals from one ham (yes, 18!)
- How to get 4 meals from one chicken
- How to make your own yogurts and granolas
- How to make your own breads, pizza doughs, pancakes & tortillas
- Equipment lists for the well stocked homestead kitchen
…and there is more. So much information and so many recipes!
Homestead Cooking with Carol is a great value – think about how low you can bring that weekly grocery bill down!
