Spicy Cabbage Kimchi

Rating: 4 stars 95
Kimchi, a popular Korean dish, is best described as a spicy, slightly sweet, pickled or fermented cabbage. I spent a year in South Korea and fell in LOVE with Kimchi! My friend Myong was kind enough to share her recipe and technique with me. Some ingredients may not be readily available in your local supermarket. Look for Kimchi (Fish) Sauce and Korean chili powder in Asian markets or online. Use kimchi in stir fries or your favorite Korean dishes.

Quick-Pickled Spicy Asparagus

I love pickled asparagus but got tired of spending so much money on tiny little jars and decided to pickle my own. I also like it spicy but feel free to halve the crushed red pepper or omit it altogether if spice is not your thing.

Raspberry Habanero Jam

Rating: 4.5 stars 35
This jam is delicious poured over a block of cream cheese and served with crackers. The heat from the peppers and the sweetness of the sugar and berries complement each other perfectly. A simple and unique appetizer or game-day snack. This raspberry habanero sauce is also wonderful on top of vanilla ice cream!

Tomato Harvest Marinara Sauce

Rating: 4 stars 32
Fresh-tasting, Italian-style marinara sauce is a winter luxury, so why not try canning your own? It is a process to make this canned version, but it's oh-so worth it as each jar lasts up to a year! You'll love discovering a hidden jar of this sauce in your pantry in January. Vary the amounts of garlic and spices according to your family's taste. Use this as a base sauce and add sausage, ground turkey, and other spices.
