I now make most of my own bread. I figure it costs about $.20 a loaf.

Its especially good to do this in hot weather - I use the dough cycle on my breadmaker (as I have a medium one to fit my small kitchen but need a large loaf for my hungry family) plop it in the loaf pan and in 40 mins its risen enough to go in the oven I find cut bread from the shop goes mouldy too quickly in summer while home-made bread doesn't have that problem - partly because it gets eaten quicker
just subcribing these are great ideas keep them coming
I do this with 1/2 C of olive oil.
Does anyone know how to make freezer strawberry jam? My grandma used to make it and it was great!
I don't. But my Mom does. Next time I talk to her I'll get her recipe.
Strawberry Freezer Jam
2 cups crushed strawberries
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (bottled actually better)
4 cups sugar
1 pouch CERTO fruit Pectin
Measure the EXACT amounts. Stir sugar into prepared fruit. Mix well. Let stand for 10 minutes, stir occasionally.
Stir pectin into lemon juice in small bowl.
Stir pectin mixture into prepared fruit. Stir constantly until sugar is completely dissolved an no longer grainy, about 3 minutes (a few sugar crystals may remain).
Pour into prepared containers, leaving 1/2" headspace at top for expansion; cover.
Let stand at room temperature 24 hours until set. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks. Otherwise store in freezer for up to a year. Thaw in refrigerator.

What is icing sugar? Where do I found it?? Thanks.
Confectioners sugar, which is in with our baked goods. HTH
We call it Powdered Sugar, and in our stores it's usually right next to the brown sugar. If you don't have it, you can make your own substitute: http://whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/sugar.htm
Christmas is coming! I'm loving some of these recipes.
I like huckleberries, but find a whole pie too rich.
Instead, I add between 1/2 and 1 cup to an apple pie
when I bake it. They give it a nice rosy color and
add great flavor.
Holy cow! This thread is a blast from the past. Thanks for bumping it up. My DMil recently showed me how to make homemade pot pie squares for PA Dutch Chicken Pot Pie. Now, me and my DMom are getting together and we're going to make a big batch of the Pot Pie squares that we will allow to dry to use at a later time. Plus, we are going to make bread dough and pizza dough that we will freeze.
