Homestead Barn Hop #64

“Cultivating the Homestead Community”

Welcome to the 64th edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!

This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead, along with two other fantastic homesteading gals:

Amy from Homestead Revival and Kendra from New Life on a Homestead.

We encourage you to stop by every Monday and share your latest homesteading posts with us. From cooking to animals to gardening, we want to hear what’s been happening at your homestead this week!

Mom Photographer shared a wonderful post last week (actually, two weeks ago, since we took last week off in observance of Memorial Day…) on how to make your own coconut milk. Even though we are usually swimming in fresh cow milk, I still enjoy canned coconut milk on occasion for smoothies or recipes like my Healthy No-Bake Cookies. Check out her easy tutorial– this is defintely on my to-try list! Thanks Mom Photographer!

Want your post to be showcased as our featured post in the weeks to come? Amy, Kendra, and I will pick a different post to feature each week from the previous week’s entries. Just make sure that you link back to one of our blogs- otherwise we can’t pick you!

Now, on to the business of this week’s Hop!

Some Simple Guidelines:

1. Remember to provide a link back to the Homestead Barn Hop in the post that you share. Feel free to grab the banner at the top of this post, if you would like, and use it to link back to us!

2. Please link to a specific post, not your blog’s main page.

3. If you don’t have a blog, share your latest homestead updates in a comment on this post!

4. We, the hosts of the Barn Hop, reserve the right to remove any link that we deem inappropriate or offensive. We will err on the side of caution.

    Thanks for hosting the Homestead Barn Hop! I linked up my post of Warm Asian Bacon Salad. Great way to use up the Tai Soi in my garden!

    Thanks for hosting, Jill. Today I linked up an easy trick for keeping biting flies away from your head. My husband learned it in Boy Scouts about 30 years ago. :-)

    How Funny! This past week I too posted a recipe on how to make your own coconut milk, only I show you how to do it with dried coconut rather than fresh. It is a great idea to know both recipes so that you can have the benefits of fresh when available, but still have access to a BPA free version when fresh coconut is not in stores.
