Old Fashioned Corn Relish

old-fashioned-corn-relish-2

Hi my name is Jenny and I am addicted to canning. No joke I think I have nine different kinds of jam in my pantry. And let’s not even get into pickled items…  Last year when our sweet corn patch was going full force, a family friend of ours brought us a jar of corn relish she made from the sweet corn we gave her. She said it was her mother’s recipe and remembered eating it as a young girl.…

Spicy Taqueria Carrots and Potatoes

Spicy Taqueria Pickled Carrots-6

Back in California, what we call “Taco Wagons” reign supreme and are pretty much the best things ever! Taco Wagons were popular before Food Trucks became all the rage, serving up dollar tacos as well as the best burritos and chimichangas EVER! I think every time we visit California, I eat from the taco wagon pretty much like 3 times in one week. I’ve got to get my fix while I can. The garnish on top of your plate of tacos…

Apricot Habanero Jam

Apricot Habanero Jam-3

There’s this pepper sauce that I LOVE back in California put out by a local company called Brannen Gourmet. They make an original and a spicy cranberry, but my favorite is the apricot habanero. I know it sounds like it is burn your eyes off hot, but it is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. Both the regular and the original pepper sauces start with a base of apricots to give it that sweetness. So when my mother-in-law gave me a…

Rhubarb BBQ Sauce

Rhubarb BBQ Sauce-3

Until I moved to North Dakota, I am pretty sure I had never had anything rhubarb before in my life. In fact, I am pretty sure that I didn’t even know what rhubarb looked like or how it grew. Rhubarb was not a thing where I was from in California. So when I moved to small town North Dakota and summer just began to hit, everyone started buzzing about rhubarb. As I have been here a few years, I have…

It should come as no surprise my love of canning, as the last couple weeks, the majority of the recipes I’ve been sharing have been canning related.

However, I will warn you. It is addicting.  Anyway, one of my lovely friends from…

Quick Pickled Eggs

Pickled Eggs-6

I shared last week my new found love of canning and pickling everything. If you live anywhere in the upper Midwest, I am sure you’re well aware of how important pickling is. Honestly, it wasn’t until I moved to North Dakota I realized that people here pickle everything! Making pickles are a BIG deal and people here LOVE their pickles. Pickled watermelon rind, pickled pike, pickled sausage, and one of my husband’s favorites… pickled eggs.  A couple weeks ago, he…

Jalapeno Bacon Jam

Jalapeno Bacon Jam-6

When we were in Thanksgiving for California, my mom pulled a jar out of the cupboard for me to use in some sort of toasted baguette appetizer… It was jalapeno bacon jam. And it was glorious. I knew I need to re-create it at home. If you know me, you know my addiction to jams with jalapeno so this one was right up my alley.  Disclaimer: if you aren’t someone who can utilize self control, this jam may not be…

Plum BBQ Sauce

Plum BBQ Sauce-2

Since I’ve discovered the wonder that is homemade BBQ sauce, rarely do I find a bottled one that compares. Homemade BBQ sauce is simple and takes basically no time to throw together. It has become one of my favorite things to gift (everyone loves homemade right?) as well as add to my list to can!  This fall I tried a carolina BBQ sauce for the first time, it was incredible! Two of my other favorites are this Mango BBQ Sauce from…
