Also, unless the juice is freshly squeezed of something - so like a juice you buy at the store, most of it is a year old pulp, and added sugar. I stopped drinking it when I realised it gave me the sugar shakes the same way soda does. 

 

Also, hi, I'm new here too :D

Juice gives me the sugar shakes, so I usually stay away to. Fresh squeezed juice is an exception, as well as sparkling cider.

Fresh squeezed juice is like crack to me.  I feel like I could drink 20 oranges and/or grapefruits worth of it in one sitting. I can't bring myself to drink store bought juice any more.  I don't really have a sensitivity to sugar in terms of my body, but my taste buds are like NOPE.

After watching the news tonight I hope all my US East Coast Rangers stay safe and warm.

 

East coast ranger checking in, and while NC isn't exactly getting a ton of snow, we are due 2-3 inches of snow overnight as well as sleet.  So the great state of North Carolina will basically shut down as a whole.  Ha.  There was no bread at the Walmart, the schools are closed, not to mention the beach was EMPTY except for one guy metal detecting when I was there earlier.  Thanks for thinking of us.

speaking of challenges

they are going to mordor in 2018.

 

and they are NOT going to leave me behind. 

 

I love that fictional land.  (? new zealand)

 

not Quite so Sure New Zealand really has a proper claim to it-- but despite some movies that made the LOTR lover die in a Barrow Wight stone coffin (conveniently SKIPPED! ofc)...

NZ has made the most of it.  and I suppose it works.

 

anyways.https://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/105502-walk-to-mordor-and-back-again-2018/

It looks like some stuff is melting, just not the roads...at least close to where I am.  Though I have seen a few maniacs fly down my street  My husband has to go in to work later, but thankfully his commute is like 4 minutes.  I won't drive in this (but mostly because I hate driving).  I am gonna check the news to see what they are saying.

Eeeeeek I am hearing the same....!  We have so many side roads and little neighborhoods here that I'm sure haven't been treated at ALL. ><  My colleagues were texting this morning about accidents outside their subdivisions too.  People have been driving in and out of my neighborhood but they have bigger cars and I can actually -see- the road now but I SURE DON'T TRUST IT. D:  

 

Why don't people have common sense in winter weather??? Hoooo boy howdy.

Yeah and apparently in a lot of places they aren't plowing because it would just expose all the ice and make it worse.

I feel like I'm shouting into the void here, but it can't hurt to ask.

 

Does anyone in here know anything about home canning? Specifically applesauce. I'd love to make my own applesauce like my grandmother did.

 

But like... Should I buy a water bath canning thing? Or just a rack for my saucepan? Do I need a specific recipe to use to can? Is there any other advice you'd give to someone learning how to can?

I think @Elastigirl may have something to do with homemade applesauce, I seem to remember that being a theme in her threads in the past.
