Water Bath Canning Set: This canning set is perfect for canning tomatoes, sauces, applesauce and pickled items! If you’re not ready for a pressure canner this is perfect to get you started. Here’s How to Can Tomatoes yourself!
Pressure Canner: Once you’ve mastered the water bath canner, you’ll want to move on to a pressure canner. This is the exact canner that I use. There are electric canners but should their coils burn out you have to buy a whole new one and they’re pretty pricey. Check in how to can your own chicken stock, in my post Pressure Canning Straight From A Newbie!
Stone Baking Sheet: I love this stone baking sheet! When it comes to baking, I try to primarily use stoneware. Everything just comes up so much lighter! The best recipe to try it out with, would be my Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies!
SOAP MAKING RESOURCES
Jan Berry’s Natural Soap Making eBook Collection is my soap making bible! This is where I learned EVERYTHING I know about making soaps. From the supplies I needed, how different oils worked and what quantities to use, troubleshooting, and a wealth of recipes to try out! I was so confident after reading these eBooks that my first batch of soap, I wrote the recipe for it myself! It was for my Cucumber Mint Soap and it was a huge hit!
Pipettes: I love using pipettes when measuring out essential oils into my soap recipes! I like to measure by the mL and it’s marked right on the side. One of my favorite recipes so far has to be my Pumpkin Coffee Soap Recipe!
Silicone Loaf Mold: I much prefer using a loaf mold l when I make soap. It gives it more of a rustic look than the cavity molds. But having a silicone mold with a wooden frame makes it easy to remove while having the support of the wooden frame. Here’s another of my favorite recipes using a loaf mold, Harvest Orange Soap Recipe.
