Another day to use the canner :o)


Did you ever find yourself doing one thing that leads into two more things needing to be done? For years I've been making Jalapeno Jelly< which I love, and found some good uses for it, (usually I would be giving Jars away)...one idea I got from my youngest daughter..(she used it on Barbeque, I tried it and it's sooo good :o)...I started using it all the time..I had one jar left in the fridge (about 6 months)..
When we were ill, my oldest bought a lot of chicken breasts, and put them in the freezer (trying to help our diets)..Cecil had tired of chicken breasts and switched to wings,legs and thighs. So, not to waste the C. breasts in the freezer, I decided to make some chicken tenders and spread some Jalapeno Jelly on them...Well Cecil and I ate them like there was no tomorrow :o)...and used up the last jar of Jalapeno Jelly...and for the VERY FIRST TIME...Cecil requested me to make more of that Jelly :o) I almost couldn't believe my ears...and as you see, I wasted no time...
I'm such a good wife :o)

recipe, please.

I make this in the summer when I have fresh peppers but have never done it this time of year.

I LOVE pepper jelly on my toast or biscuits with my eggs for breakfast.

Yes, you are a good wife! And how funny that after all these years Cecil decided he likes pepper jelly. LOL

Ladydi,I stopped listening to Cecil about not liking this or that when he hadn't tried it...and I kept on cooking for myself or something I had as a child and had to learn to cook it when I had no one cooking it for me and I wanted my children exposed to different foods, I knew then that they wouldn't starve whatever they were offered they would know what it tasted like...Ginny
