This is a wonderful pickled asparagus recipe. When this veggie is at a good price, I always make lots of it, and store away for the winter...great along side with just about any dish. Note cooking time is boiling time for the jars.
A Beautiful Amber colored jam studded with golden nuggets of spiced peaches. Brown sugar and Southern Comfort giving a nice caramel flavor and warmness from the spices making it great for the holidays. That is if you can save it till then.
Top some chicken, pork, toast, pancakes, brie, ice cream or cold vanilla yogurt with this.
I didn't peel my peaches but if you desire them peeled just, blanch the peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds, then submerse in an ice bath, then slip off the skins.
Who doesn't love caramel apples? This jam would make a wonderful gift. Five cups of applesauce can be substituted for the cooked and sieved apples in this recipe. This recipe is from Linda Ziedrich's The Joy of Jams, Jellies, and other Sweet Preserves.
Plan ahead this method takes 2 days to create the best most richest flavorful stock, far better and cheaper than any canned broth, once you try this you will never purchase cans of broth again! --- this can be done either on a stove top or in a crock pot but start the stock firstly on the stove top then transfer to a crock pot --- the same method may be used for turkey stock use the carcass and leftover legs, thigh and wing bones from your roasted turkey in place of the chicken pieces, also save your carcass and bones from roasted chickens and freeze them to throw in the pot, roasted bones will produce a richer golden colored stock but uncooked chicken works just as well --- I freeze the cooled cooked broth in 2 or 4-cup plastic freezer containers and store in the freezer until ready to use, you may do a quick defrost in the microwave when needed --- yield depends on size of pot and how much water is used, use this broth to make the best tasting chicken soup, don't remove the skins from onions they add color and taste to the stock adding in another onion won't hurt :)
Avocados can be expensive, even here in Texas. This is more of a tip than a recipe that I wanted to save for myself and share with y'all. Now I can stock up when they are on sale yet still enjoy them when they are not. Just multiply the recipe for the number of avocados you want to freeze.
This is a sweet pickle relish similiar to what you can buy in the grocery store. (Better, I think) Can be used for Hot Dogs, Potato salad or any recipe calling for Sweet relish or salad cubes. Easy to make
I needed another way to use up the hot banana peppers and cucumbers I picked out of my garden. Got surfing the net for something and found this recipe. I had to fix it to our taste. I'm posting how I made my relish.
