After picking it is canning time : Apple sauce

By Kari Svenneby

Canning is a great way to preserve our harvest and it also is a fun activity to do together as family. In our family we get together washing, peeling and preparing for canning. It is not just for grown ups children can be great little helpers. An added bonus is canned goods look great as a display in your kitchen and is also a great hostess or Christmas gift.

Happy Fall ! Fall activity guide

It is that time again, shorter days and less sunlight.  For me, fall is Canada’s number one season.  If you ever think about visiting Toronto make sure you visit in the fall.  Fall in Toronto is warm days and gorgeous nights with beautiful fall foliage and harvest bounty for the farmers markets.

Find Monarch butterflies

Every year something magical happens in Toronto. Each year, thousands of beautiful Monarch butterflies congregate at the shoreline before embarking on a 3,500-kilometre fall migration to Mexico.

Today we decided to follow Monarch butterflies on our bike ride by the shoreline.

Tomato sauce (preserving tomatoes)

Tomato sauce I have to admit that I was a little reluctant to make my own tomato sauce, but that is before I discovered there is tomato sauce and there is tomato sauce. After I tasted the first jar I became totally hooked and probably will never buy a jar of sauce from a store ever again.

Walking to school

walkingfrontFredrikstad. Norway:  I remember when I was a kid I walked to school alone without any parents. I know I share this experience with many readers. It is a mantra I hear a lot from people growing up in the 70’s regardless if they grew up in Norway or the US/Canada.
