So, for the past few days, I've been buying fruits and vegetables that are on sale and have been pickling and jamming them. Super healthy. Mostly for me. I have made around 15 jars (pint and quarter sizes) of pickled baby eggplants, cauliflower, strawberry jam and peach jam. I have also made about two jars of cream cheese and one jar of Greek yogurt. All ingredients cost me around 15 bucks (I love sales!). Anyhow, I was never interested in selling my stuff, but my husband just left me and my 10 month old (we're separated now), and I am still in school and have a part time job. Expenses are high even though I am a bit conservative with money. Baby and I live in a tiny tiny apartment (we pay under 400 dollars a month so you can imagine how small it is). Anyways, do you think I have a chance to make somehting out of this "business"? or how to even get started? I have no money, only what my mom taught me when I was young about cooking and preserving food. Can someone give me some advice to get started? I looked online but most tips say somehting like registering with the giv't etc, I do not want to do that.. sounds too complicated.
Many many thanks!
p.s. if you think the whole idea is crap, please let me know too. I definitely don't want to get my hopes up for nothing
