100 + DIY Projects to Make with Fruit Scraps

{Recipes with Matching Labels}

An Old Fashioned "Waste Not, Want Not" Recipe and Resource Book

“Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.”
~ John 6:12b


If you love turning trash into treasure, especially when it involves filling the pantry, broadening the food menu, home decorating, natural cleaning ideas, nourishing bath and body care recipes, home remedies and so forth-- then this book is for you. All the do-it-yourself projects revolve frugally around the foundation of fruit scraps that you would generally throw away! 


What makes this DIY Ebook a bit different than most is that none of the recipes require the use of expensive essential oils (though they could be added to enhance some of the recipes--if you desire). All the products are made from scratch by tapping into the beneficial properties of the powerful fruit peels! As you have always heard (and now know) that there are more vitamins in the peel than the actual fruit, you will be gleaning the gold in these recipes!


The other neat part is that all of the shelf-stable projects come with matching labels. This makes it an ideal book for gift giving ideas as well! At least 100 of the recipes are shared with a full color photograph of each product.

Chapter Sections Included (with Introduction) from the Ebook:

"Bath and Body Care" Recipes
Featuring a variety of all-natural products to fill your powder room shelves such as
balms, bath salts, face care products, natural perfume, scrubs, easy to make soaps, oils, powders, etc.


After preparing pies, jams, fruit sauces and such, you are left with a heaping pile of peels and scraps. Though the chickens, livestock and compost pile may enjoy them, the prospect of filling your pantry shelves, medicine chest and bathroom cabinet instead may be a bit more exciting! If you feel strongly toward our Depression Era ancestors, then the wise saying, “waste not, want not” certainly resonates within you. With this in mind, our little project book is directed toward you, the one who sees a peel as potential and a scrap as an opportunity!

"Cleaning Closet" Recipes
Featuring a variety of toxin-free cleaning products to inspire a naturally clean home such as
recipes for all your housecleaning needs, laundry aids, kitchen solutions (i.e., produce wash), etc.


I am sure you have also heard many times in your life that it is the peel that contains all the vitamins. This is true in many cases and we will be gleaning all those beneficial properties in our recipes!

"Embellishing the Home" Recipes
Featuring a variety of projects to bring natural beauty and fragrance to your home such as
handmade potpourries, fragrant sachets and room sprays.


You will notice that the frugal projects shared in this book showcase many citrus fruits. I consider their varied uses a blessing! They are in season in the winter when many of our gardens have gone to sleep, and extra time is on our valuable homemaking and homesteading hands. You have permission to be creative and productive while hibernating in your cozy home! There are also many other projects included that are focused on summer and spring produce as well which will give you plenty of DIY pleasure all year round.

"The Kitchen Table" Recipes
Featuring a selection of products and foodstuffs to broaden your menus frugally such as
breakfast recipes, healthy beverages, snacks, desserts, syrups, etc.


You will also notice that many expensive health supplements you may be purchasing can be produced for pennies! We go directly to the pure source, the peel, and find our home apothecary has increased (and with very little funds).

"The Medicine Cabinet" Home Remedies
Featuring a selection of home remedies and food supplements for your health such as
medicinal and protective oil blends, salves, tonics, booster powders, immune support products, etc.


In addition to the easy-to-make projects, we also include matching labels (when they pertain) that can turn an ordinary item into a lovely gift! Or, they can simply enhance your own pantry and powder room shelves.

"The Pantry" Recipes
Featuring a variety of useful products that are “shelf stable” to fill your pantry shelves such as
make your own mixes, extracts, tea blends, seasonings, jelly, syrups, vinegars, etc.


Ingredients were carefully chosen in this e-book to reflect the most basic items we needed to accomplish the recipe properly while maintaining a budget. This means there are no recipes requiring expensive essential oils or a very random ingredient that you would never use again. If there is a rare item on our list, rest assured it will be used in at least a handful of our recipes (glycerin comes to mind here) to make the purchase worthwhile.

Final Chapter: "Miscellaneous Uses for Popular Fruits"
Featuring a variety of creative ways to use the most common fruit scraps.


There is also a section in many of the tutorials that give you ideas for when you are “feeling frugal” such as how to recycle items to make the project for pennies. We also share a “feeling fancy” idea, which can include luxurious additions such as essential oils and herbs. However, each project is first shared with the frugal foundational recipe in mind. For those that think that frugal can’t be fancy, I do hope this little publication gives you a change of heart.


Happy kitchen-crafting,
JES

  5. Jes, is PayPal the only method of payment you accept? We don't use our account much and we have forgotten our credentials to get on PayPal. Thanks, Paula in Kansas

    1. Hi Paula, thank you for the interest in our Ebook! From what I was reading on the hosting website, you may be able to purchase through Paypal WITHOUT a paypal account via a credit card in some instances. It may be worth a try... If not, you can email me at pleasewritetojes@hotmail.com and we can see if we can work something out... Hope this helps! Love, JES :)

    1. I too would have preferred a hard copy book as opposed to the Ebook I purchased. I'm the old-fashioned type who likes a book on the counter to look at for directions. I don't think I will print it using my printer, as it would likely use tons of ink. I'm wondering if I could go to a Print shop and have them print it from my download, for a reasonable amount...I'll look into it.

    2. Hmmm.. that is good to know. It just seemed too expensive to self-publish a book with that many full color pictures. I also thought that with the labels, the eBook gives more convenience for individual printing. But I too usually also prefer a hard copy! I did take a flash drive with the file to the local printer shop and had a copy bound because of that very thing! I don't know that there will be a next time but if so, I will look further into a hard copy. Or perhaps if I ever expand the book, I can do so with a hard copy offer as well. Thank you so much for sharing your feedback. I really appreciate it :)

      Delete
    3. That's understandable Jes. So if you don't mind my asking, what was the approximate cost to have the shop make you a copy?
      Thanks,
      Heather :)

    4. Hi Heather, the local printer's shop charged $17 for a black and white bound copy... Another reader mentioned she just printed the whole thing on her printer. I really don't know what is less expensive. For kicks, after our last "conversation", I plugged in the numbers on the Amazon print shop and the book would cost $20 to print NOT counting fees, royalties, etc.. It would have been quite pricy once all was said and done to do it independently. Probably around $35 and who is going to pay that? I sure wouldn't! :) In the meantime, I think the Ebook format is the frugalist option... Let me know what you end up doing and how it turned out! :)

  7. Hi Sue! Thank you for your interest! It just seemed that with the color photographs, it would be too expensive to do a print version. I do know that some of the ladies are printing them and binding them which is what I am planning to do also for my daughter and myself. So sorry about that! That would have been fun!!! :)

    1. I think I remember having that issue...I believe I had to just hit the "back" button a few times or refresh my screen and it eventually behaved.

    2. Hi there! This is a new problem and seems to be either a computer or paypal glitch? No one else has complained of it. Perhaps reboot the computer and try again later. I am sure it will work again in the next 24 hours. If it takes longer, I will still honor the discount and refund you if you end up paying the full price. Just send an email my way explaining @ pleasewritetojes@hotmail.com so that I know. Hope this helps! :)

Love it love it love it! :-)

  15. I just bought the e-book, but I'm a tactile sort of person. Really wish you had this available in a printed version. Love it even still. I'm hoping I could get this printed as a book at somewhere like Staples without violating any copyright laws.???
