On Saturday, I emptied and strained my jar of torn leaves and oil. After letting the mixture strain for a while, I pushed it with a spoon and then took it in my hands and squeezed out the remaining liquid. I cut open 4 vitamin E capsules and emptied them into the mixture and poured it into small containers (with lids) and put them in the fridge.
After sitting in the fridge for a while, it solidified.
Looks pretty, doesn't it?
It does have a funky smell, I think in my next batch I will put something in it to make it smell better.
On my first post about this, my cousin Carmen commented and told what it did for her. If you never saw her comment, you should go back and read the comment she left. It really did miraculous things for her brown recluse spider bite.
I had a doctor's visit last week. I showed him the results of using the salve. He was very impressed and said he was all for natural remedies. His assistant remembered what it looked like before and when she saw it completely gone, her eyes and mouth opened wide. She was amazed.
Other news around here - I have made 4 batches of grape jelly and around 12 quarts of grape juice. It is sooo good! I used my juicer extractor (I posted here about it last year, when I used it with berries) to get the juice from the grapes. It's the berries! I love it. There is no sediment left at all in the juice, which is great when you are using it as grape juice. I did use about 1/2 cup of sugar to each quart of juice. Delicious and good for you!
We are still picking peppers! The pepper bushes are so big, they look like small trees.
These are the world's hottest peppers. Ghost Peppers!
My son has saved seeds from them to replant next year.
We are enjoying fresh eggs! These came from my cousin, Carmen, as well. Aren't they pretty? I had an omelet this morning with peppers in it and fresh sliced tomatoes and a big spoon of my fresh grape jelly on the side.
And last, but not least - you never know what you will see while riding around in the country in Jackson County visiting yard sales.
Oh, I almost forgot. Don't forget about my give a way! There is still time to enter. If you don't scrapbook, you could give the free code to a friend or family member who does. Plus, there are other things you can do with it. - like making calendars, printing gift tags etc. I am looking forward to making a personalized calendar with it for next year.
