Storing Summer’s Bounty: Canning, Freezing, and Dehydrating (a Molly review)

With autumn right around the corner, this month’s “Begin with the Basics” section on apples is quite timely. Included are what some of our favorite types are best suited for (applesauce, pies, etc) and several yummy recipes. Crunch!

I enjoy canning, especially salsa, which never lasts long, and spaghetti sauce. Molly includes links, directions, and recipes for a variety of produce. Seeing the pictures of fresh berries and fresh corn being prepared for the freezer brought back childhood memories. Too bad I don’t have a larger freezer! While I don’t own a dehydrator, I am tempted to buy one so I can dry apples for snacks and herbs for future use. It looks like a very handy gadget.

The Kids’ Corner has tips and printables to help your children manage their time and schedules. Since that’s one of my foci this coming school year, I’ll be printing out that section to share with my girls.

A Molly Digest wouldn’t be complete without calendars, printables, menus, and lists. Check out Molly’s Econobusters website for more great money-saving tips. You can also join Molly’s special members’-only site for even more articles, ideas, and freebies. It’s only $3.95/month for a subscription.
