Pomegranate jelly. Cost not including jars is about $3 each. Jars are reusable. Labor: ~2 hours including cleaning. Pomegranates are in season right now and local mega-asian market had them for $1.29 each.

Apple Butter

This time I made a full batch instead of a half batch. It took hours longer to thicken up as a result. But still worth the effort. I should now have enough to last me till next winter. Recipe tip: use a microplane to make your own ground cinnamon. Much better flavor than buying a pre-ground bottle that has been sitting on a shelf for 2-10 months.

Made one tortilla so I could fill a craving and use the last "emergency only" can of refried beans I got a long time ago and never used because I am always making them from scratch now.
