Cable Buddies

Do you have a spaghetti closet? We do! I mean, we did. If you look behind your computer, TV, audio systems do you see a jumble of cords that run every which way just like a platter of spaghetti? Cable Buddies to the rescue!

These cable holders will make your life so much simpler. Not only do they take up the extra length not being used but the Cable Buddy never leaves your cable. This means the cord for your iPod can't get misplaced because the first person to find it can read who the cable belongs to! I have mine reading "Small Sewing Machine" and "Cord to Electric Spinner" and even "Mom's iPod." The color coordinated labels even have dots so you can mark where everything goes before you disconnect and move a machine. WHEW!

These Cable Buddies were such a life saver for us we have put them in the catalog as a potential free gift! Just make sure your product total is $ 90 or more for this item, then write in the comments field "I would like the Cable Buddies please." We'll take care of the rest by adding these to your order and making sure you are not charged for the item. You don't need to wait to get this item as a free gift, you can order it by just placing it in your shopping cart with the rest of your items. By placing one in your shopping cart and requesting one as your free gift you can get double the fun!

Also, you can order these awesome tools just by putting them in your cart. We think these are worth ordering because they are so awesome (never see jumbled cables in your pocket again!) but we also think this is a pretty cool gift. Instructions do come with these packs. Don't worry, they are simple to attach to your cords and cables!

Available in white or black.

Pickle Packer Vegetable Packer

Are you a fermentation enthusiast? Are you just trying your first batch of sauerkraut? I highly recommend the Pickle Packer Vegetable Tamper. It allows you to maximize the amount of vegetable you can fit in your jar while minimizing or even eliminating air bubbles.

This sleek and elegant vegetable tamper is made from Acacia Wood. It is smooth and a pleasure to handle. The best part is that it has two differently sized ends so you can fit it into a regular mouth canning jar. I love my vegetable tamper and I keep mine out on the counter where guests can admire it. (It is really that beautiful.) It is a fabulous conversation starter and has prompted more than one guest to ask to try any of my beets, sauerkraut, kimchi, dilly beans or anything else I might have in my cupboard.

Pickle Pebbles

I love being able to use a mason jar to ferment sauerkraut, dilly beans, beets and more. However it can be hard getting everything submerged under the brine. This is where Pickle Pebbles come to the rescue! These handy weights help you keep vegetables under the brine while letting you see into the jar without disturbing the ferment. These Pickle Pebbles are designed to fit in a wide mouth mason jar.

Pickle Pipes

I am super-duper excited about our most recent addition to the catalog. Pickle Pipes are a somewhat odd addition to any kitchen but these little tools are amazing. They let you turn any simple wide mouth canning jar into a fermentation vessel. I have a few sets at home and I love using them during my forays into the world of lacto-fermentation.

Lacto-fermentation is the magical process of turning cabbage into mouth watering sauerkraut, daikon radish and nappa cabbage into kimchi and green beans into scrumptious dilly beans all without vinegar. If you are just getting started on your fermentation journey, I highly recommend Fermented Vegetables by Kirsten Shockey and Christopher Shockey.

What I really like about the Pickle Pipes is that they are easy to use, dish washer safe and ultra durable. I have tried many types of fermentation tools and aids and Pickle Pipes are by far my favorite!

Are you ready for the best part? You can add a set of Pickle Pipes to any qualifying order for free! That is right! So feel free to spoil yourself. Your taste-buds will thank you. Cheers!

I've found this to be a great source of information about not only common sugars and sweeteners, but uncommon ones as well. I've been able to find nutritive contents for sugars, calories, and sweetness relative to sucrose. This book is teeming with the type of information that my great-grandma would have called "good information" and sent everyone she knew a copy!

Zipzicle Pouches & Sleeves

A WizCo LLC product.

Homemade popsicles are fun for all ages! I love that I can easily make any flavor that I want rather than hoping my favorite is at the grocery store. I can even make my coffee extract using the Toddy Maker and then freeze it in the Zipzicle Pouches for later use.

From a soapmaker's eyes, the best use for Zipzicle Pouches though isn't for making popsicles! I think there isn't a better way to portion out milk, tea, coffee or infusions into smaller quantities for later soap making sessions. Each Zipzicle Pouch will hold approximately 3 fl oz (95 mL), which just happens to be the right amount of milk for a Half & Half method batch of milk soap.

You might even be making soap mixtures but the kids want you around for a fun summer activity. Try blending up a jar of peaches with a scoop of orange juice concentrate. Once smooth, pour into Zipzicle pouches and freeze! If the pops are for mom and dad you can add a bit of peach schnapps! Make sure to LABEL the contents and the date made.

Get the 18 pack of Zipzicle Pouches for free with any $ 50 product order, the 36 pack of Zipzicle Pouches for free with any $ 80 product order, or the 4 pack of Zipzicle Sleeves for free with any $ 100 product order. Just check your order to make sure the product total (before shipping) is $ 50, $ 80 or $ 100, or more, to qualify for this item, then write in the comments field "I would like the 18 pack (or 36 pack) of Zipzicle Pouches, please." or "I would like the 4 pack of Zipzicle Sleeves, please." We'll take care of the rest by adding your request to your order and making sure you are not charged for the item. You don't need to wait to get this item as a free gift, you can order it by just placing it in your shopping cart with the rest of your items. By placing one in your shopping cart and requesting one as your free gift you can get double the fun!

Don't forget to work your job or hobby but also to have fun with your kids, extended family and your friends. Happy freezer pop days!
