~ Nana's Kitchen ~

I've been busy this week , on Monday I made six ~ 1/2 pints of blackberry jelly. The blackberries didn't bare well this year , so this is the only batch I'll be making.

Curious J and I are making rosemary flavored red wine vinegar , his dad loves it , so I'll be sending a bottle home with them.

~ Yesterday's small harvest from the garden ~

I added some dried moss , cayenne peppers and rosemary to my garlic braid I made last week. It looks so much better although it's still a little lopsided .....

it now hangs in the kitchen with a new wall hanging my sister-in-law gave me last week ( love it ) and a thrift store oil painting of an old barn I found a few years ago. I hope to have a barn like that one day !


Open 24 Hours ~ Nana's Kitchen
...... Where Memories are Made
and Grandkids are Spoiled ........

I was under the shed yesterday cleaning some garlic and the girls decided I needed their help .............

This is Fern standing in front of the garlic , right before she decided to jump up on my shoulder ................ wonder if she's a parrot in disguise (LOL).

I did get the garlic cleaned , sliced and laid out to dry on an old window screen ( the pic only shows one side ). I plan to make garlic powder , if it dries out well. This is tedious work , so I hope it is worth the trouble , my fingers are sore from peeling so much garlic.

~~ Garlic Blessings ~~

I love that old basket you have there. I made two batches of strawberry jam last week. The bottles are still sitting on the cupboard where I can see them... harvesting is so much fun.

Yep JoAnn ~ They did smell delicious!

Strawberry Jam ~ Yum ! Vickie , I didn't get back to the strawberry field as planned , so no strawberry jam in my cupboard this year.

~ Blessings To Everyone ~

Wow! I never thought of making
my own garlic powder. I love
garlic a lot!

When you get a chance scroll
down my blog to some anwsers
I made up to an age old question.

You'll find it at the pic of an egg poacher lid on top of a green polka dotted planter that I put an extra roll of toilet paper in and sit it by the toilet with in reach.

I like what you did to the garlic

That is so funny Carol! lol!
