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.”
I love making fabulous little somethings to spark up dinner, especially when that fabulous little something is as delish and as easy as these Pickled Red Onions.
Some of us, umm older, people know all about making home-made wing sauce. Yep. That’s because believe it or not, there was a day when you couldn’t buy the stuff.
Red Onion Jam, Red Onion Confit, Caramelized Red Onions – all different names for the same thing: Rich, silky, sweet & tart, this is a condiment that should be in everyone’s fridge.
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.
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.
