    Hahahaa! It's not the rain I worry about, it's her fording the flooded river, slashing through the snake infested jungle, and climbing halfway up the erupting volcano that worries me. Let nothing stand between a woman and her chickens! 100 years from now they'll still be telling stories of The Legend of Granny Hatchet.

    You will need 5 cups of peeled and seeded zucchini either ground or grated. With what ever juice you get while grinding or grating it.

    1/2 cup lemon juice


    boil together for 10 minutes on rolling boil covered


    Then add sugar (orginal recipe called for 5 cups and I am down to using 3 cups) to sweet for me otherwise.
    1 Large box of Jello... I think the berry flavors work the best

    bring to rolling boil for 10 minutes I went uncovered for this step

    jar with NEW lids and rings water bath for 5 minutes.

    Reason for berry flavored is the zucchini (ground) still has quit a bit of texture to it. I did 1 batch black cherry (couldn't find blackberry) 2 of raspberry and 1 of strawberry with the "extras/leftovers from the other 3 batched added in.

    Yield 7 to 9 1/2 pint jelly jars. Good on toast or anything else you would use jelly for.

    If you don't like the texture you could try a "stick" blender before jarring the jelly.

    I got a picture of the bull His name is Porter 54 inches at the shoulder and 30 inch horn spread. [​IMG]


    The one in the back with a white face is called a Trim as there is white. Porter is a Native or Black as he has a grey nose. All black with black nose is an Imperial. A Royal would be wither white and black or white and golden. The more white the more money it seems to go.

    Wishing ! [​IMG] You made me cry. thank you guys. I am no author thats for sure. and without you guys egging me on, I wouldnt be climbing that mountain or crossing that river.
    I actually have some bad news, for me. My van is not drive-able . the brakes are gone says DH. the van is a piece of crap and he dont want to fix it. he wants to get the car running. I just cant see me getting in and out of that car. it sits very low. It will finish my foot. I have gone against him and contacted a friend that has a husband mech. if i cant afford to get it fixed not sure what i will do. cant haul hay in a buick.

    You can also make homemade mincemeat for pies and cookies out of green tomatoes.
