Visiting over at Mugs and Muffins today..

Good Morning my dears..  
So happy you dropped by today.. 

I am doing a little guest post for Bevy over at Treasured Up and Pondered..

You can find it HEREl

Bevy is a dear heart and shares a Mugs and Muffins Segments each month.. 
It is filled with wonderful recipes for homemade muffins, an encouraging post and a great giveaway.. 
Her blog is about the Christian home and family life.. 
I know you will enjoy visiting her.. 

Thank you for inviting me to join you, Bevy.. 

The post is called Preserving the Family... 
The family is a precious unit that we need to treasure but to also preserve.. 
 God loves our families and wants us to do all we can to cherish them and keep them close to our hearts.. 

So with that in mind I am giving you a couple of recipes for preserves.. 
The first recipe is for 

It is a delicious bottle of jam and the recipe can be found HERE..
This recipe only makes one jar but it is so easy to do if you have 3 apples or pears that have been hanging out in the fridge.. 
Or perhaps you just need a little gift to take to someone along with Bevy's lovely muffins.. 
By the way this recipe was given Terry's seal of approval.. smile.. 

Remember the other day when we were at the farm and I cut up this bowl of cauliflower..

Well this is how they turned out.. 

Aren't they pretty?  

So nice for your Thanksgiving or Christmas table, I think.. 

They taste good also and are so different from other pickles.. 
The recipe made 1 quart but I doubled it and had enough for 2 quarts and enough brine left to do a pint bottle of red onions.. 

I found the recipe HERE..
If you don't have enough brine then just make another batch and add it.. 
You keep these in the fridge ... 

Thank you so much for your lovely visit.. 
Please let Bevy know you were THERE.. and enter her giveaway.. 

Take care everyone..

Our pastor invited my hubby and I to go out to lunch with them, as he needed to discuss something with him regarding our new church. I did tell you that my hubby is now pastoring here in the city of Winnipeg, didn't I? If not yes, he is!!! We are both very happy and excited about it.
