And the sales continue, for $0.39 cents ALDI avocados anyway. It’s not too late! We plan on swinging by and getting more this week, is especially important seeing how young one has signed up to provide the guacamole for her end of class party. As mentioned in a previous post, whole boneless pork butt roast is $1.49 lb. This has worked well for us as pulled pork, making for great tamales or Barbecue. If you like chicken drumsticks or thighs, and are close to a Sav A Lot, $0.99 cents lb. looks like a pretty good deal, especially if you like pressure canning. However, freezing works well also.
Our first attempt at dry canning dehydrated mushrooms and bell peppers. More is on the way, just need more canning jars. Both are leathery to crisp and tasty as a snack. Still getting the hang of the Foodsaver vacuum. The pineapple and avocados are in the freezer. Will most likely can some of the pineapple but will probably not dehydrate as it’s eaten too fast, like candy.
Hurry! Last day for Aldi Grocery sale, Baby Bella Mushrooms 8 oz $0.99 cents, Multi color bell peppers $1.99 for 3, avocados $0.39 cents each, whole Pineapples $1.19 each. Stock up!
Great deals! Easily dehydrate Mushrooms and peppers for later use. Pineapples are yummy dehydrated as well, or frozen or for home canning. Avocados can be frozen for later use.
I have a foodsaver unit I found at a yard sale years ago that still works great, that combined with my new FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer Wide-Mouth Jar Kit with Regular Sealer and Accessory Hose (affiliate link*), I am able to dry can the dehydrated mushrooms and peppers for later use. This method of dry canning is simple, you just vacuum seal the canning jar, this allows for multiple uses of the lid, just repeat the vacuum seal process after opening each time, no mess. Feel free to contact me for questions on this process.
