Autumn Family Recipes Part 1

It's the season for pickling. Warm things up on a cold day while canning pickled squash, zucchini, eggplant and cucumbers. Canning is no longer a lost art do says my mom. My sister Karen can prove that with this spicey line up sweet pickled delight. There's a tall jar waiting for me next time I visit dad and mom quaint estate.

Pickling: It's becoming a practical and popular pastime for large and small families who like to snack on healthy homemade wholesome goodness. Now there's a mouthful. Say that three times real fast. pickling from scratch is perhaps one of the healthiest, least expensive and most fulfilling ways to provide nutritional value to any family meal. Find some great pickling recipes right here in the recipe bin.

Baking: The irresistible aroma of home cooking and canning make the kitchen table a more inviting place for kids to linger and make conversation. Families will quickly learn the joy of sitting down and savoring a tasty recipe. That said, why not make it a point to whip up what you know they'll like. Careful though, you're bound to draw a neighbor or two to your front door.

Nothing is more heart warming then taking the time to enjoy family crafts, cooking, story time and eating mouth watering treats all at the same time. It's what good memories are made of.
