Planning for a Smokehouse

Time for venison chicken fry! We have had a great year for filling our freezer and are definitely enjoying plenty of chicken fried venison and antelope.

One of the things we love about Wyoming is the hunting opportunities. This year our big game hunting was very successful with Joe filling all of his tags; […]

Apple Recipes ~ A Baker’s Dozen!

It’s fall in Wyoming and I have apples on the brain!

Each fall we like to stock up on apples. I often order these by the case from Azure Standard or pick locally from friends. I love to dehydrate apples to have for snacking and baking through the winter but we also enjoy eating […]

This post was originally shared on my short-lived homesteading blog.

Things have changed for us since I originally wrote this post.

 

Did you know that it is believed that cheese making may have started when dairying started? Milk was put in animal bags (usually made out of a […]

Stocking the Real Food Pantry

This is an exciting season for my husband. It is hunting season. One of the reasons we moved to Wyoming 3 years ago was for the hunting opportunities. My husband, with the help of our 17 year old (Kiki), makes it his goal each year to fill our chest freezer with antelope and venison. This […]

Real Food and Food Storage

The past few weeks I have been mentioning my 13 Week Rotating Menu Plan and food storage each week when I post my weekly menu plan.

Food storage is something that I have a slight obsession with. My obsession started before our real food journey did. Switching over to real food actually stalled my food […]

Preserving Food

Ginger commented on this post about doing more canning and preserving in order to build up food stores. This is something that I think about and hope to implement too.

I haven’t done much canning (why is it called canning when we put everything in jars? Shouldn’t it be jarring?) but the little I’ve done […]
