Chris is cooking and asked me to run down stairs and get some chicken stock for what he is making. It makes me happy and satisfied feeling to get something off the basement shelves that we made and canned ourselves. #wemadethis #makeyourown #homemade #homesteadingskills

Giveaway is now closed. Fall is in the air,🎃 and for some of us, that means it's baking season! Cool crisp days replace the heat of summer, and all of a sudden, we don't mind turning on the oven and heating up the house. Soups and stews 🥣take the place of salads🥗 and sandwiches and classic desserts like Apple and Pumpkin pies🥧 are taking over dessert menus everywhere. As much as we all love the classics, but sometimes it's fun to try something a little different. 🍡 A group of us at @FWIConnections collaborated to share with you some of our favorite classic recipes, but with a twist! Each of us has taken a favorite classic recipe and either come up with or found a fun twist on the classic to share with you. 🍅🍓🍒🍇🍎🥥🌶🥝🥑🍄🍆🍑 🍽Go to @FWIConnections and follow all that the page is following. 🍽 Find the giveaway pic on @FWIConnections 🍽 Stop by each account listed and see what they cooked up for you in the challenge 🍽 Like and comment on each account letting us know what is your favorite comfort food. Follow along with us for your chance to win an amazing prize! A beautiful basket of baking goodies! (Swipe left to see whats included!) Matching French farmhouse style grain sack striped apron and tea towel, French pastry cutter and a satchel of calming lavender lemon tea from @Frenchmarkethome 💜plus a beautiful hand sketched wood burned "Mom's bakery"  spoon🥄 from @love.Daisy.Sunday. #lovedaisysunday #frenchmarkethome 🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅🍅 For my classic twist I am sharing how to make yummy tomato sauce from the tomato skins you might normally toss or compost. Preserving food is a part of life for most of us that live in the country, but I feel guilty about all the waste from the skins, so I started freezing the skins in a gallon ziplock bag. As soon as the bag is full you are ready to make tomato sauce. I use all my mismatched jars for this sauce so I have all kinds of sizes. Makes it easier to grab exactly the amount I need for soups, sauces, casseroles, meatloaves, glazes, etc. The process is so simple, its in comments below! 🍅🍅🍅 I hope you enjoy!

I bought this beast a while ago and never used it. Never will. It needs to find a new home but I can’t seem to find anyone willing to take it! Both my other looms are more than sufficient for me. I’d love to share with some one... Know anyone interested in an OLD loom? It needs to have a pawl fabricated for it. It works with string heddles which I have all four heddle bars. If you live close perhaps we can work something out! 🤗 #bigkatesyarns #homesteadingskills #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #loom #twoharness #needsanewhome

I have felt a cold coming on this week so I started taking echinacea tincture. I put it in a tiny bit of water because it is hard for me to take straight, but it works very well! This is an organic one from Bolivia but you could make your own using the full plant and a high proof vodka.

Part of the potato 🥔 harvest. Pulling potatoes is my favorite garden chore to do because it’s always a surprise.....digging your hands in the dirt feels so good. The purple/pink swirl variety called purple Viking has been my best producer the past few years and it tastes great. White flesh on the inside. Gardening really is therapy for the soul!😊 #dirttherapy #purplevikings #growyourownfood #homesteadingskills #ndgardening

The earnest concentration of a grafter. We haven't begun this years 800 trees but we ran our annual grafting workshop yesterday with people from all over the place doing all sorts of things. With their newfound skills everyone chose their desired apple varieties and created two of their very own trees to take home. Charlie and I only grafted a few for some...I managed to draw blood-not a great way to demonstrate how its done but ill blame the fact i was using poplar not apple to teach 🍏😉

It’s that time of year, the red malabar spinach is going crazy and starting to go to seed. I need to start picking and preserving but I’m not sure which way I want to. What is your favorite way to preserve spinach?

🌱Foraging score🌱 ✨ Y’all. I have found the loot of all loots! If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with Elderberry and I have found the MOTHERLOAD 😍 I’m not talking one or two bushes. I’m talking about the very likely possibility of 100 bushes. ✨ Time constraints allowed me to only harvest a small batch but I am thankful to have it available. I will be making Elderberry Syrup for immune support during the winter months. Elderberry Syrup is chocked full of Vitamin C and other powerful antioxidants to help boost your immune system. It can even act as an antiviral, helping to prevent the flu and other cold weather viruses. ✨ I’m over the moons about this foraging haul. Have you ever tried Elderberry Syrup? Let me know 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 • • • • • • #foraging #foragingisfun #forage #forager #elderberry #elderberrysyrup #naturalremedies #wildedibles #elderberries #herbalmedicine #herbalmedicines #homestead #homesteadingmama #homesteadinglife #homesteadingskills #naturalmama #momdiaries #holisticliving #holistichealth #holisticlifestyle #herbalist #wildmedicine #nature_good #nontoxicliving #harvest

Gathering Friends together is good “clean” fun! 😋 . . Part 3 of our homesteader series..... sink soap (or laundry soap, hand soap, strong body wash)! 🛁 . . There’s something so gratifying about making your own home goods. 🤗

Our new Chicken Palace is really coming together. What started out as a pile of old pallets and refurbished wood from demolitions is slowly turning into a new coop for our critters. We love repurposing materials when we can because it’s economical and reduces our carbon footprint. I’m excited to see the finished product and I know our little gals (and few guys) will love it! • • • • #chickensofinstagram #chickencoop #chickenpalace #chickenlove #crazychickenlady #homestead #homesteading #homesteadingmama #sustainableliving #sustainabilitymatters #homesteadinglife #homesteadingskills #naturalliving #holisticliving #freerangechickens #freerangeeggs
