Summer time farmer's markets!

A great way to eat healthy, and enjoy good foods is to take advantage of the summer time farmer's markets! Check your local papers/ towns for times and dates where locals sell their fresh, organic, healthy goods! It's can be a fun event for the family; help support local farmers, and help your community; and if you have never tasted a locally grown tomato; your salads and taste buds have been missing out! A good opportunity to try something new, and cost many goods are cost effective!

Cutting Small, Round Fruit Quickly

Rather than cutting grapes, cherries or cherry tomatoes one by one, try this. Arrange the fruit close together on a cutting board. Take a flat object (such as the flat part of a plate bottom), and place on top of the fruit. Press firmly, but gently. Run a sharp knife through the fruit, halfway between the flat object and the cutting board. Voila! Several fruit cut at once.

LEARN TO CAN AND PRESERVE

Learning to can and preserve your own food does more than save you money. Many of the products on the market like canned tomatoes, beans, and fruits are canned in cans that have a lining that may be harmful to your health and can cause cancer. By canning your own food you save money and your health. Need help getting started? Go online, the library, or even your local cooperative extension has advice. You don't have to start out with pressure canning. (continued in more information)

Ripening green tomatoes

Have tomatoes that are not going to get ripe before frost comes. Pick the tomatoes and to help them ripen, wrap individually in newspaper and leave them on the counter. All of them may not ripen but this sure helps extend fresh tomato season.

Plant a Garden

Yes, it costs $ to put in a garden, but you will definitely get a great return on your investment. I like to can tomatoes and make jelly. Getting back to what our grandparents did is not only healthier, but smarter!
