    Nancia pepper jelly is marvelously good isn't it? I love it. now I am not a fan of mint jelly guess its on the sweet end no excitement lol. Jaba not sure why he liked the other one better did you have a batch of that already done? I think the ones we made were raspberry only? I guess the strawberries come out more with the rhubarb but not sure I would want strawberries on my steak. for some reason the other berries work better in a savory fashion to me. dorky me I know. I like a peach compote with pepper in it too.. great on pork. might try to work one of those up.. guess I will have to go find some peaches now.. they are so much less fun to cut up. but I need to make a batch of spiced peach jam with candied ginger and cinnamon. oh yes. guess it truly is 'that time of year'. wonder what our farmers market has?

    I think she said there were either 6 or 7 different peppers in it, including jalapenos. She puts it over cream cheese & then scoops it with crackers. She went canning crazy about a year ago and will can anything. I brought her a case of peaches home from south GA when I went to Jacksonville, FL to visit my family a few weeks ago. There is no telling what she made out of them.

    Nancia, I'll see if she still has some more left & if she does, perhaps I can liberate another jar from her for you.

    The strawberry one was the small trial batch, then we did raspberry and tweaked it remember? Anyway he liked the strawberry taste and it was great on the bar-b-qued chicken last night. Sounds like you have all kinds of hot coming your way nancia, when's dinner?

    Yes, we do that with the raspberry chipotle sauce from Pampered Chef - we don't heat it up though. Pour it at room temp (or fridge temp) over a brick of cream cheese. It's called "cowboy caviar" - we've used other sauces for that too, but my husband really likes the pampered chef stuff. Me, I don't eat it. Not my thing. Plain chips with plain salsa (through the blender cause I don't like chunks) and I'm a happy kid.

    I'm a fan of the green pepper jelly on cream cheese; I have a girlfriend that makes and brings it to parties - it's mighty tastey. I like some fruit with peppers - I've had the hot peach salsa but have never tried making my own - I like strawberries and rhubarb together - speaking of rhubarb my neighbor has a huge patch and asked me to come pull what I want - I see rhubarb crisp on my weekend menu. I'm going to see if I can still get goosberries plants and try and raise some of those - love the little sour berries - they make the best pie. Kelly, our 'Cowboy Caviar' is made with black eyed beans, corn, g&r peppers, onion, garlic, cilantro and zesty italian dressing (could be missing a couple of ingredients not sure) it's the best with tortilia chips. We like to make fresh pico with chips - Good thing lunch is soon - reading and talking about snack food is making me hungry.

    ok, so i can't type! my fingers have a will of their own since i developed essential tremors. so sue me@ LOL!
    i was wrong on more than spelling. it is centerville barbecue between houston and dallas. those of you who do not want your pickles bumped around by goats and sheep, can order bread and butter pickles and look for the one with peppers. it's not too hot, really! i can handle 7 on a scale of 1-19 and these fall in at 4 or maybe a weak 5. tasty with a kick.
    jaba, you just keep teasing me on! lol! my mouth is already watering!!!!

    I make a horseradish refrigerator pickle that tastes kind of like bread and butter with a slight kick - easy to make and last a long time in the fridge. I love hot wings - tomorrow is 'Wing Wednesday' at one of the local watering holes and they sell their wings for fifty cents a piece - hot, sweet hot, bourbon glazed, plain - yum. There is a restaurant in Owatonna that sells hot wings that are so hot most can't eat them - what a waste of good wings; I like spicy but not five alarm hot.

    Jan we created a monster with my talk on your dressing! recipes ladies recipes! if you can something that is out of the norm let us know! Creativity does not end in the sewing room it appears I love my sisters Georgia spiced peach Jam hence the need for a lug of peaches! ok half a lug .. I want to make some flavored syrup anyone tried that yet? how about canned bbq sauce anyone put up any of that? pickles sound grand especially with horseradish. anything with horseradish is supper in my books. I like making my nose burn and my eyes water. I buy the stuff that is not mixed yet just pure horseradish.. sold to restaurants they add the mayo to bring it down. I eat it the way it comes out of the jar. oh my yes. and for some reason that is not as bad as a super hot pepper.

    salsa easy: canned white corn drained, canned rotel tomatos drained (with pepper) and can of black beans. four or five cloves garlic, minced onion, olive oil and fresh lemon juice. on tortilla chips.. yum. I can't eat it very often because of well the canned stuff but it sure is easy and sure tastes good. oh yeah and salt and pepper. first time I had it I was hooked love beans! love corn! love tomatos (a forbidden fruit for me) and well surely without any calories right?

    I grew up in Buffalo, NY. No wings will ever be good enough for me now. I'm spoiled.

    i know, jaba. i took it as it was meant, in fun. it does get a little frustrating that my fingers aren't always in my control, but like everything else, i deal with it. the worst was my husband telling me i didn't have to keep hitting the key. like i could stop it! i always wanted to tap dance, just not with my fingers, lol. oh, and i'm not a woose, i meant to say 7out of 10 for heat. brat, you sound like 10 out of 10! i like spice, some heat but mostly flavor. like tikka masala, wonderful full flavor, no heat. i'll try almost anything once, with the exception of things like eel(shudder), and bugs. my dh has had rattlesnake, tasted like chicken, so why bother? just eat chicken! lol. same with alligator. there was a wonderful restaurant in dallas owned by stephen pyles. great food, different ingredients. the only way i could eat it was to forget what it was. tasted great! but i know i wouldn't eat it if i knew what i was eating! lol. the mind is a powerful tool!

I tried many those beaver one? oh my what a joke not hot at all. I love a tiny bit on my steak it just .. perks it up a bit. My kids grew up eating it too and are spoiled like me. Straight up or its no good to them LOL at 6 or 7 they learned to love it evil mom right? here kids have some burn your face off horse radish! they were eating mussels and clams and all veggies from the time they could eat. Momma didnt eat half of it but said I was full they figured I made it Papa loved it so it must be good. lucky me.

    We just finished with our fish fry - I took a little nap - I was up late last night finishing a project and basically had a nap before going to work this morning; picked my daughter up from her house and gave her a ride to the community street dance and will go back and get her at midnight or 1:00 - NO DRINKING AND DRIVING!!! For the past three years we have attended my ex husbands family Red-Neck Cook-off; it's a lot of fun - grillers make something spectacular and everyone votes for their favorite - the winner gets to take home the traveling trophy and also hosts the event at their home the following year. We will miss this years festivities as Brian's daughter and girls will be in town for night out having pizza and going to fireworks. It will still be a fun day. My daughter-in-law, Tany, is walking in the community parade so we'll go watch that and the remainder of the weekend is mine to do what I want - NOTHING BUT REST AND RELAX - no work on Friday.

    I'm not a pickle person. Wings I am into though! OMG lemon pepper wings are to die for when they're done right! There's a place here called Willie's Wings. They're a tiny little takeout/delivery place with no tables, and you have to drive through a church parking lot to get to their entrance because it's in a little side building behind a 5 business, 1 row of parking, roadside strip. They aren't cheap (ranging from $8 for 12 to $57 for 100, their largest pack), so the owner must be making a killing. They're always busy. Of course, it's a college town, so there are party staples that always have to be available, and wings are one of them. We used to have a Hooters years ago, but it has been gone a long time, with lots of rumors as to why. There's only a few places in town that do party packs of wings & Willie's is my favorite!

    Good thing I got my wing fix a few days ago or I might have to have some again this weekend!

    OH LUCKY ME! DH came home with a present for me today. In the past these wonders have included rattlesnake skins, squirrel skulls, oodles of roadside rocks he found interesting, feathers all sorts of wonderful things. Today was no different! he said he saw this hand carved wooden rocking horse he wanted to get me but he decided on the..beaver pelt. oh yes the beaver pelt. yeeehaaa and yahooo...I just wonder what else I might be receiving in the future. so next time your man brings you the same old flowers .. take them and give him a fat kiss. it could be...

    Oh my goodness! Yeah, it could be one of those, lol. No danger of that happening here. I did get a series of comic books which are the source of my name though. One just because and the other 2 volumes for mother's day. Each volume has 7 editions of the comic book in it. That was probably the most "off the wall" thing he's ever gotten me. But even that wasn't 100% unexpected. No matter how many times I've told people, since we've known one another, about the origin of my name, it wasn't until a few months ago that he said "hmm, I never knew that." The guy quickly replied with "Well the next time that you need a gift, you know what to get her!" A couple weeks later, the first book showed up. Yep, I cried. Not because it was just because or because he gave it to me, but because it was a tie with my dad that I wasn't able to make before he died. It hit me like a brick.

    I sure hope you didn't react like that over the beaver pelt!

    ooo,ooo! i have a funny beaver story! i inherited a beaver jacket from my sister. mom had bought it for me, gave it to her, she willed it to me. dsis had put a lining in it because it came without. i wanted to get it cleaned and went to a well known dallas furrier. i showed him the jacket and said i wanted to get it cleaned and/or trade it in on a new one possibly. he asked me how much i paid for it, and i said 35. he said they were going for 4 now so 3500 was a good buy! thirty-five hundred, o, i know i screamed. no, 35 dollars! it didn't have a lining!

    my sister and her husband have Syd hanging in their living room - Syd is the butt end of a white tail dear - the butt opening is the mouth - the white tail hangs down like a beard and the taxidermist created a nose, eyes and ears for the thing - it's really quite clever art work. They also have wolf, beaver, mink and other pelts hanging on the door frames from room to room along with two bear mounts and mounted fish on the wall. They love the north woods.

    We're not the woodsy kind at our house. The boyfriend comes from Denmark, where there are very few hunters and gun control laws are very stringent. So, naturally, being a science and computer geek, he doesn't go in for the great outdoors, except our jet boat and watching cars on Top Gear. However, one of his colleagues travels all over the world to hunt. A couple months ago, he went up near the arctic circle on a polar bear hunt. (The locals say the bears aren't nearly as close to extinction as we're led to believe. I dunno.) Anyway, he's done very well with the company he owns on the side and the cattle he raises, some of which are used in the state rodeo, so he goes somewhere one or two times a year on these hunts. They added a wing on their house a couple years ago, which is basically a long 2-story hall, with an open apartment on the far end for entertaining or overnight guests. When we were there last, the walls were about 1/3 full, and he said that they only had half of his collection up, because the other half still hadn't made it into the country. He's got the head of a 3000 pound animal over here, an full stuffed mountain goat over in the corner, an antelope over there, and all these other various heads. It's AMAZING, but I think it'd be a little creepy to live there & walk around in there at night.
