My mom's recipe for icing. Growing up we couldn't wait for birthdays, just to be able to swipe some of this good stuff as she was icing the cakes. So much better than store bought or bakery icing, easier than cooked icing.
Much less expensive than store bought. Great for cookies, cakes, etc. Also, can add a drop or two of extracts to make the sugar also taste and smell good. Multiply amount to make as much as you need, but a little goes a long way, visually.
This is the best salsa recipe I've found so far and I've tried about a dozen. I got it from one of the local hospital cookbooks that are sold in my area. I changed it a bit and have been canning it for years. The reason I plant a garden is for this salsa. We would be lost without it. Hope you like it as much as we do. One of our members who is a food scientist took this salsa to work, tested the pH and found it measured under 4.0 (well within the safety limit for boiling water bath processing).
This is a very easy and quick NO FAT gravy to make. No fuss and you do not have to worry about the gravy going lumpy. I developed this recipe almost 20 years ago using my homemade chicken broth or vegetable broth.
This syrup is concentrated stuff, use 1-2 tsp in 8 oz of milk. It's ultra-chocolatey, with a deep cocoa flavor, and not too sweet. This syrup is thick and smooth with a shine ...a chocolate syrup for adults. Use Dutch process cocoa powder if you want the finished product to have the beautifully deep color and flavor to which all good chocolate syrups should aspire.
This recipe is from "Company's Coming" Canning book. It is an easy excellent recipe. I double the jalapeno asked for and I like to leave wee flakes of peppers floating in the jelly. If I use red peppers I use a drop of red food dye and if green well, what else, green
You can use this on so many different things. By adjusting the cooking time, you can make it as thick as you like according to what you are going to use it on. I like to make it thicker to use on ice cream and thinner for desserts. I often double the recipe so I have some left over for later.
This recipe is from a childhood friend's mother, Linda. She makes it for her family and I was lucky enough to be included. I'm not a huge fan of maple syrup so this is a very yummy alternative! (Yield is approximate.)
Mrs. C. Alfred Bergsten's recipe from the Philathea Cook Book of Elim Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota from 1945. She noted until the recipe name "Very Good." This is a base recipe- it is always 2 cups sugar for every 1 cup of chopped plums you have.
