weekend projects

I finally got the labels finished for my bags, thanks to Penny's label tutorial! I wanted to get these done so I could finish the bag I'm working on. I will post pictures this week - I really like this one! I would keep it for myself if it wasn't already spoken for. But I think I say that every time....


What do you do when you have a prolific jalapeno plant but not enough tomatoes to make enough salsa to use the jalapenos? Jalapeno Pepper Jelly!!

Does that sound weird to you? My husband wouldn't even try it. I was introduced to it at a family gathering last summer where cream cheese in many forms was consumed. My favorite was a Ritz, cream cheese and a dollop of this sweet hot jelly! I know, it doesn't sound very sophisticated, but it sure tasted good!

I've also had it on a turkey pot roast sandwich and it was great that way too! This weekend I had it on a roast beef sandwich and it didn't disappoint.


Welcome Autumn! I've always wanted to leave a pie by the window to cool. So I did! I used some fresh Ginger Golds for our apple pie - delicious. Nothing fancy, super simple. And just as good for breakfast as it was for dessert the night before!

I hope you don't think I'm a dummy, but what are ginger golds?

Valerie said...

if you like pie, you'd love pushing daisies on abc, my absolute favorite show (besides men in trees, and yes, i'm still sulking that they yanked it off the air)...:)

Ginger Golds are a Virginia apple. It's a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Pippin. and they are GOOD.

Where can I see said bag? That is so cool that you are starting a little business! Martha Stewart........LOOK OUT! (just don't go to jail like she did - hee hee) BTW, ever since I met you I've been addicted to Pink Lady (or Cripps Pink) apples and cheese! YUMMY!!!!! :)

Hi Amy,
I found your blog through Bakerella. Congrats on the win!!! Anyway, I wanted to tell you pepper jam/jelly is the best and I think that is a great idea. My grandmother has been serving that with cream cheese on this little biscuit/cracker thingys for as long as I can remember.
Yum!

I must have missed this post when it first came around. I LOVE jalepeno jelly!! My grandmother used to make it every summer and store it up (and I think I single handedly depleted her supply while in college and living nearby.) We always ate it the same way as the other commenters; with cream cheese on crackers. I have found many other great uses. It's a terrific glaze for chicken or salmon and I actually like it mixed into oatmeal for a spicy morning pick me up!
I wanted to make a batch with my mom this year and the jalepenos are on sale this week 2 pounds for a buck, I just might grab some!
