The next time you have a backyard barbecue and don’t know what to do with those corn cobs, try making corn cob jelly. Here is what you will need: 12 corn cobs, three quarts water, two tablespoons lemon juice, one box Sure-Jell powdered pectin sugar and one tablespoon butter or margarine. For the full recipe, visit http://countrifiedhicks.blogspot.com/2012/09/corn-cob-jelly-recipe.html

Want a tasty cup of coffee? Don’t rush over to the coffee shop to buy that expensive cafe au lait. You can buy a milk frother for about $2.50 and make your own at home. Just warm the milk on the stove and then froth it and pour over double-strength coffee. For more information, visit http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/category/articles.

If you only need to use part of an onion, don’t let the rest rot away. You can freeze unused portions. If you use chopped onions in cooking, just chop them up, freeze them flat on a baking sheet to prevent clumping, then transfer to a freezer storage bag.
