Cowboy Candy (Sweet & Hot) Pickled Peppers

Sweet & Hot Pickled Jalapenos - easy and no processing needed!

I love summer when the living is easy…gardening, grilling and maybe even a little light canning. I’m not about putting up quarts of tomatoes (although you should see how many plants we put in, lol!) but I do tinker with small batches of something special. Cowboy Candy (Sweet & Hot) Jalapenos fit the bill & bonus…they go right in the fridge and don’t have to be “processed.”

Sour Cherry Compote

Sour Cherry Compote: Rides the line between sweet & savory and has so many uses!

One of my summer/fall favorites is this marvelous Sour Cherry Compote. It’s a little sweet, a little tart and goes so well with so many things. I often make up a batch and can or freeze so I have it to pull out in the winter, too.

Spicy Tomato Jam

Talk about persistent, and maybe a bit coy, tomato jam came on slow for me. Before it began to whisper my name, I’d see it here and there, maybe on Pinterest, sometimes on Facebook and I think it even showed up now and again on our weekly Throwback Thursday link party.
