Putting Away Peaches - Peach Pie in a Jar One of the great things about this recipe is that if your mixture is good and HOT when you put it in your jars you won't need to process them in a water bath! The heat from the contents will be enough for your jars to seal.

MOLD-FREE BERRIES!! When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider probably work best) and ten parts water. Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted I find you can't taste the vinegar,) and pop in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the surface of the fruit.
Wrapping celery in foil will keep it fresh and crisp in your frig for weeks. You can get 7 wks out of broccoli and 6 out of head lettuce doing this too. Good to know! (Now all you have to do is remember what it is because you know you'll never look. ;-) )
Apple Pie Filling for the Freezer. This recipe will keep in the freezer for 12 months. No color additives or preservatives. Next time you want to make an apple pie, defrost a bag and bake. No coring, cutting or peeling necessary!
