Food Storage 101
On Aug. 5, Kelli Morrison presented a class of 20 tips for making your own mixes to save time and money.
Morrison taught about making copycat Bisquick mix to use in many recipes. By spending one day of spare time making a large mix, you can save lots of time when you need it later by dumping a mix in with a few added ingredients and you’re done.
Because you can buy in bulk quantities for ingredients, you can save money as well. Mixes can be stored in air-tight containers on shelves, refrigerators or freezers depending on the ingredients of the recipe.
There are resources like the “Complete Make-a-Mix Cookbook” by Eliason, Harwood & Westover to library e-book loans, www.budget101.com.
Nest meeting is 7 p.m. Tuesday at the LDS Relief Society Room. The topic will be Freezing Foods and Substitutions for recipe ingredients.
