Yes ................ it IS all worth it. Look at all that wonderful food. I know how it was raised, how it was cooked, and what it in every single jar. I feel good knowing that my family is eating healthy organic food. They have no preservatives, and I must admit the soup is great! When I see this, I am SURE Mom and Dad would be very proud of us. Thank you Mom and Dad for giving me the background I needed to know how to do all of this. Without that guidance Phil and I would be floundering around, with now idea of what we needed to do!
