here). The ingredients are pictured above, but I ended up doubling the recipe and instead of using red pepper flakes I used one quarter of a hot pepper (don't ask me which one - I just know it was red, the size of one of the green peppers above!). It came out delicious, with a hint of pepper as opposed to super hot as I think it would have turned out had I used 2 tablespoons of red pepper flakes.
Next, my friend Sue gave me a bunch of tomatoes from her garden. Since they were very ripe there was no way we could eat them quickly. So, I made tomato marmalade. The boys and I have been breathing air filled with cloves and allspice all afternoon. How sweet!
I don't know about you but when I spend the day canning I don't feel like cooking dinner. I have peeled, chopped, stirred, washed dishes a couple of times, cleaned the counter...
In the meantime, within 24 hours both the pepper jelly and the tomato marmalade jars will be ready to be decorated. I will get to play with fabric again!
