Jalapeno Pepper Jelly

Scripture to Live By:  
will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety. 
Psalm 4:8

Recipe Post:
I went to celebrate my sisters 75th birthday and she gave me some Jalapeno peppers she had grown in her garden.  She had been making Jalapeno Pepper Jelly.  I don't mean just a few jars but at my last conversation with her she had canned some 50 jelly jars of it with the help of her daughter.  I was not sure I would enjoy Jalapeno Pepper Jelly, but my sister said I must try it.  She gave me a jar of it to try it.  I tried it and decide it was very tasty.  So now I have made some of my own.  So if you would like to give it a try, the following is what you will need:

4 cups of sugar
16 Jalapeno peppers (divided)
1 large green pepper
1 1/2 cups of apple cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
4 ounces of Certo Liquid Pectin

Wash peppers thoroughly.
Remove the stems. Put 12 of the Jalapeno peppers and your green pepper in a food chopper.


 Chop well. 

Pour peppers in a saucepan 

Add 1 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar

Bring to a boil and boil for approximately 20 minutes.

While the pepper mixture is boiling, remove seeds from remaining peppers and chop finely with a knife.

Let cool.  Then put mixture in a cheesecloth bag and squeeze the liquid into a saucepan.  

You should have 1 cup of juice.  (Maybe a little more)

Add 4 cups of sugar and bring to a boil, (that cannot boil down,) and boil one minute.  

Add 4 ounces of Certo Liquid Fruit Pectin and the remaining chopped peppers.

Mix well.  Ladle into clean sterilized jelly jars.  

Put lids and rings on jars and tighten down.
Seal jars in hot water bath. Go here to see how.

Hope you will give it a try.

Ham Pineapple Pizza

Scripture to Live By:
How can a young man keep his way pure?  By guarding it according to your word.
With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!
I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
Psalms 119:9-11

Recipe Post:
I really enjoy pizza with a variety of toppings.  I was talking with a lady while I was shopping and she told me that she liked ham and pineapple pizza.  It sounded so good at the time, that I was determined that I would try it.  So I bought a Cumberland Gap Ham Steak and a can of pineapple tidbits.  I made my regular pizza dough.  This recipe makes three pizza crusts.

Mix 2 1/2 cups of warm water in a mixing bowl; add 1 tablespoon of yeast; 1/3 cup of cooking oil; 1/3 cup of sugar and 2 heaping teaspoons of salt.  Mix well and let set for 5 minutes.  Then mix in 7 cups of flour, (One cup at a time)

Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.  While the dough is rising cut up your toppings.

I cut the ham in small pieces as seen below.

I drained the pineapple tidbits.

After the dough has raised, I divide it into 3 pieces.  Sprayed each pan lightly with cooking spray, then spread the dough in each pan.  

Next I added the pizza sauce.

Sprinkled on the ham, 

Then added the pineapple tidbits.

Top with Mozzarella cheese.

Bake at 350 for approximately 30 minutes or until golden brown.  

Serve while hot.  


So if you want something different, why not give it a try?

Blessings to you.
