My passions are many: Antique Clocks, Gluten Free Food that tastes great, Dogs, DIY house projects, and Spirituality, to name a few. I have a small home-based business where I repair antique and modern clocks. I am also licensed by Environmental Health to sell GF baked goods at craft fairs.
I spend my free time trying out new recipes for GF food, cleaning products, chalk paint, you name it!
Where am I? Prince Edward Island, Canada! Find me on Facebook at Valerie Fitzpatrick: Clock Repair, PEI
My first foray into the world of bread baking. I've been baking cookies and cakes since I was 12 years old, but bread always looked so difficult. I'm happy to report that it's not that hard at all, and it can save you a lot of money at the grocery store when you make your own. The cost works out to about $1/loaf when you bake it yourself, plus you know exactly what's in it :)
A brilliant idea, in my opinion. I started making personalized street signs (good for the man cave, teen's bedroom, your small business, restaurant decor, etc.). I cut and painted the boards, then varnished them, then used very high quality vinyl stickers to personalize them. Now you don't have to steal that street sign with your last name on it!
The finished product - delicious, but a bit of sugar had to be added to take away the sour-ness of the green grapes. Otherwise, tastes just like Welch's! Mmmmm...and all in all, much simpler than I ever would have thought. It probably took less than an hour from start to finish.
After picking the grapes from the vines, I washed them and then cooked them for about 20 minutes. I mashed them while they cooked to bring the juice out. (No water added) I shouldn't have added the green grapes (rookie mistake) because in the end I have to add some sugar to the finished product. If I had only used red grapes, the sugar wouldn't have been necessary. This pic shows all of the grapes from the previous pic in one pot, and in the end it produced one jug of juice.
