Taco Seasoning Recipe





Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe

Homemade taco seasoning is easier to make than you might think. With just a few simple ingredients {ones you likely already have in your pantry} you can have yourself a healthy, homemade Mexican fiesta in no time.

Tacos, enchilada’s, quesadilla’s, and Mexican salad – we love Mexican food here.

Taco’s are quick, easy, and inexpensive to make – I have also found them to be amongst my favorite entertaining foods. You can make most everything ahead of time leaving little to do while your guests are over. The make ahead pre-guest prep allows for less kitchen fuss and more time visiting with friends, family, or neighbors. Why can’t every meal be as easy as tacos?

So, without further ado – here is the recipe we use at My Happy Homestead

How to Harvest Broccoli Seeds For Next Years Homestead Garden

 

How to save broccoli seeds and do a seed germination test

Have you ever wondered how to save and harvest broccoli seeds? Before having a garden myself I never gave much thought as to where broccoli seeds came from. However, in an effort to be more self reliant I also knew learning how to save seeds was essential.

Upon planting your garden designate a few broccoli plants to be ‘seed plants’ thus choosing not to eat the beautiful broccoli heads which emerge. In order for a broccoli plant to go to seed you let it go past its ideal harvesting time. Your bolted plant will begin to mature and turn from green to yellow. Once the flowers bloom they will then become ‘pods’ – the newly formed pods will contain the seeds.

Once all the flowers have become pods – clip and hang the broccoli stem in a cool, dry place for a minimum of two weeks. Once dry carefully remove the dried pods from the plant. Separate the chaff from the broccoli seeds. Store in a seed envelope – seeds may be stored properly for up to 5 years
