HELLO!

Welcome to Covington Creek Candle Company! I'm so glad you stopped in for a visit. I'm committed to creating a stable lifestyle by self sufficiency. Prices are going to keep going up. Food recalls are increasing. I don't know about you but I like to know how my food was grown and that I'm the one that canned it. I want to help everyone become more self sufficient whether you live in a apartment, the burbs, a acre or two or more. Of course we can't do everything but I think you will be amazed at how much control you can have.

My home business now includes quilted items and rustic home crafts in addition to creating the best and healthiest cold process soap, 100% pure soy candles, bees wax candles and natural/organic salves and lip balm as possible. Many say I have the best Fort Wayne handcrafted soap, salves and candles. I still haven't found the right place to open a brick and mortar store so www.covingtoncreekcandles.com will have the cold process soap rotating. But email me if there is a special item you are looking for and I will do my best to create it. I am all about customer satisfaction. I am continuing to look for a few acres to grow my own ingredients and move the shop part out of my home and into a separate building.

I am trying to help make this a greener and healthier place to live. We can do this thru more self sufficiency and preparedness. I would love for you to come along on my journey because that is what life is - a journey. If there is a subject you would like more information on let me know at covingtoncreekcandles@comcast.net

Spiced Apple Jelly

Apple season is here in many parts of the country - it is in mine and will be for the next couple of months. One of my favorite jellies was a Cinnamon Cider Jelly that I bought years ago. This one is pretty close to the taste. I have toyed with the idea of maybe substituting one or two of the cups of water with apple cider to see how it would taste. Love having some on toasted homemade bread or with a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich. If you are into the apple season and love making your own jelly stop by  Grow a Good Life to get the recipe. If have a favorite apple jelly recipe send it to us or post it in the comments. I love trying new recipes!
