Friendly visitor(s) this week:
When we have to go back to old school.
Neighborly gift. Pickled squash. Looking forward to trying this.
Hot Red Pepper Jam
My wife's first try at hot red pepper jam. Excellent flavor with just the right amount of heat. Also a bonus accompanying Asian flavor that will go with meats and rice. Another batch on the cook today.
Just finished cleaning a pound and half of peppers on the top gate of the side by side. Peppers off the vine clean quickly. No kitchen mess. No more picking a few days ahead of canning.
A partial gallon of white vinegar and small clean rag for cleaning my hands also pre-set in the side by side. I have learned the hard way of wiping sweat from my face and adjusting my glasses with pepper hands. Yes, I could wear gloves but that makes the job more difficult (for me).
Why Ryobi? Because every electric tool I own is that brand and batteries interchange with the weed eater. [FWIW: I receive nothing from Ryobi for the mention.]
Daily helper: Louise, of the Thelma and Louise sisters.
We will be starting this series this weekend. Ten days ahead of triple digit temperatures and no rain. Gonna be housebound for a good part of these coming days. Have also just started the second read of Alas, Babylon.
Have a wonderful Independence Day weekend. Thank you for the visit.
