Roasting fresh beets on your Traeger brings out their inherent sweetness. When pickled for several days, they are a sublime and colorful addition to your holiday table. Candy cane beets have alternating stripes of white and red, but if you can’t find them, use regular beets. In any case, look for beets that are firm and feel heavy for their size.

Canning and preserving fruits and vegetables is an economical way to enjoy the foods you love, and a great way to fill your pantry.

We can learn a lot about living sustainably from our parents and grandparents! :-)

Pinner said: "This strawberry jam is one of the best things you’ll ever taste. No lie. You will never, ever want to eat jam from the store again. Not only is it way better for you, because it’s fresh and doesn’t have horrible things in it like high-fructose corn syrup and weird artificial dyes, it also makes a fantastic, super-cheap, seriously impressive gift. Why? Because people love jam and, for some reason, everyone thinks making it is really hard.:))"
