Cookie Jars, Chicken Broth, and Black Walnuts

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Yesterday I broke a cookie jar that we've had for over 30 years. It wasn't a valuable antique or anything like that, just a plain old glass cookie jar. I didn't know I liked it that much until it was broken.

I canned chicken broth. I always use my chicken bones to make broth in my crockpot and can it in the pressure canner. My brother laughs because I always ask for his turkey carcass at Thanksgiving to make broth.

My husband went to the neighbor's to pick up black walnuts. He loves black walnuts, and spends all winter cracking them. I use them when I make his favorite homemade granola.

    Thank you for sharing your lovely memories! Fresh walnuts are wonderful! What a lovely thing to do. I also make homemade broth from chicken, turkey, and beef bones. My local butcher has gotten VERY used to me asking for bone-in roasts (which he wonderfully cuts fresh for me AND it costs less than boneless!!!)

    So sorry to hear about your cookie jar. Hope you find one like it. I'm so amazed after a natural disaster took my home and all of my belongings many years ago--how quickly I forgot this look-a-like I picked up in a thrift store (of this or that favorite item) has actually nearly become that old item now--several years later. New memories are like friends--I can make new friends and enjoy their company, even while enjoying old friends too.
