Herb Infused Honey-SWEEEEETTT! Enhance the flavor and aroma of an ordinary pot of honey by pushing two or three sprigs of fresh herbs into the syrup. Lavender and rosemary, thyme, and sage are delicious and fragrant options. Allow herbs to steep at least five days for maximum intensity. To make a gift, transfer store-bought honey into a handsome mason jar before adding herbs.

And in my pansy aromatherapy book, they have a few mentions of infusing herbs in honey for sore throats and stuff, especially sage and thyme. Oh, and I did a vanilla honey once that was pretty good.

Storing onions for winter, can store for 8 months in pantyhose. Tie a knot between onions and you can then clip the knot as you need an onion.
Ideas, The Knots, Stores Onions, Food, Ties Knots, Gardens, Tie Knots, Onions Storage, Homesteads Survival
Onion storage, use nylons, tie knots in-between, cut knots from the bottom to use.
Great idea for storing onions for winter - they will keep for up to 8 months stored in pantyhose and kept in a cool, dry spot. Cut off the legs from a clean pair of pantyhose, drop an onion into the toe of one leg, tie a knot, and keep adding onions and tying knots between each onion. When you need an onion, simply cut a slit in the side of one of the tied off sections (this will allow you to reuse the pantyhose). Allow homegrown onions to dry before storing.
Great idea if I ever have the chance to garden. Storing onions for winter, can store for 8 months..in pantyhose : tie a knot between onions and you can then clip the knot as you need an onion ♥
27 Ways To Make Your Groceries Last As Long As Possible Put onions in pantyhose, and tie knots between onion. Plus it makes a freaky wall art installation!

Source: lunchinabox.net 3 Get an ethylene gas absorber for the fridge. A set of 3 costs $16. These little pods absorb the ethylene emitted by fruits and vegetables to keep them fresh up to 3x longer. Here's a handy list of ethylene-producing and ethylene-sensitive foods. 4 Store delicate herbs like flowers, then cover with plastic, secure with a rubberband, and refrigerate. This is the best way to keep delicate herbs like parsley, basil, cilantro, and chives fresh the longest. 5 Treat oily herbs differently. Oily herbs like thyme can be tied loosely together with string and hung in the open air. 6 If you use a lot of fresh herbs... Invest in an Herb Savor. Supposedly, it'll make your herbs last up to three weeks. Source: amazon.com 7 Use a vinegar solution to make your berries last longer. Prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider) and ten parts water. Swirl the berries around in the mixture, drain, rinse, and put them in the fridge. The solution is diluted enough that you won't taste the vinegar. Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft.

You should also keep the pit in the guacamole. Source: onegoodthingbyjillee.com 9 Don't store onions with potatoes. They'll spoil faster. In a cool dry place with good air circulation, onions will last 2-3 months. Source: thevspotblog.com 10 Store potatoes with apples to keep them from sprouting. 11 One rotten apple can spoil the bunch. It's not just an old wives' tale. Source: thedailymeal.com 12 Add a dab of butter to the cut side of cheese to keep it from drying out. Source: thedailymeal.com 13 More cheese rules: Wrap in cheese paper or wax paper (NOT plastic wrap) and then place in a plastic baggie. Keep in the warmest part of the fridge (vegetable or cheese drawer). Freeze and preserve fresh herbs in olive oil. The herbs will infuse the oil while freezing, and the ice cubes are very handy for cooking: just pop one out and use as the base of a dish. Works best with rosemary, sage, thyme, and oregano. Dill, basil, and mint should always be used fresh.

Storing onions for winter, can store for 8 months..in pantyhose : tie a knot between onions and you can then clip the knot as you need an onion ♥ ~~~ Can you still buy panty hose? JK lol ~~~~~~~ Being thrifty I wouldn't tie knots in between, I'd use twisties, or those plastic garbage bag closures where one end goes through a hole in the other, or even a paper "clamp" from office supplies. Then I could reuse the panty hose.

Solar lights made from jars. Start by spraying the inside of the jar with the frosting spray – this will help diffuse the light and give it a warm glow. Don’t spray the lid--it needs to be clear in order to work. Next you’ll need to take apart the solar lamp – this is easier than it sounds, depending on what kind of lamp you purchase. Certain kinds can simply be unscrewed and the solar/battery pack remains intact, whereas others will require some reassembly with adhesive. Glue the solar cell, or the parts you’ve harvested from the garden lamp, to the underside of the jar’s lid, and you’re done! Close the lid, put your jar in direct sunlight, and it’ll glow all night long!
DIY: Mason Solar Jars - You can get these inexpensive solar garden lamps from any hardware store... glue the solar cell piece from the lamp to the inside of your jar’s lid and voila! It's that easy! These pictures show the jars with frosted glass- which can be accomplished by using a little spray paint... so easy, right?
solar mason jars - steal the solar cell piece from solar light stakes, and glue them into the jar lid. - can even frost the glass with spray paint.
