This recipe was given to me many years ago by an elderly farmers wife and has been one of my 'must do' yearly canning recipes. If you have a large amount of beets, just keep repeating brine until your beets are all gone! Enjoy!
Corned Beef and Cabbage II
My mother has been making corned beef and cabbage this way for years. She has no idea where the recipe came from but it is absolutely the best. Easy and quick...Enjoy!
Million Dollar Pickles
Tasty pickles that take some time, but are easy to make. One crunch and you'll agree they are worth the wait!
This recipe makes a huge amount. I can it and give it away as Christmas gifts. We usually make this as a group project to cut down on prep time and cost. The ingredient amounts may be altered proportionally as needed.
Spicy pickled green beans made the old fashioned way. This was my Grandmother's recipe, I hope you enjoy!
Home-Cured Holiday Ham
There are many reasons for making your own holiday ham: bragging rights that you actually did this, but also that you can flavor your ham any way you want and you can control the salt content.
Spicy Refrigerator Dill Pickles
This is a wonderful, spicy dill pickle with a nice hint of sweetness. Plan to at least double the amount of crushed red pepper if you like it REALLY spicy...YUM!
Popa's Pickled Eggs
These simple to make pickled eggs are a great snack along with pretzels. For hotter eggs pierce the yellow chili peppers with a sharp knife and/or add other hot peppers.
Pickled Eggs II
I made these when I had my bar, and they were always a big hit. I made them in large batches because of the standing time, but have scaled the recipe for home use. Extra large eggs are boiled, then pickled in a simple brine solution. For a variation, add dry minced onion flakes, crushed red pepper or hot sauce to the brine.
Home Made Souse
Home made souse from scratch. Dad's variation of an old family favorite. Spiced just right.
Spicy Peach Chutney
This chutney closely resembles imported Indian chutneys and is good with all curry dishes. It is also great with cream cheese and crackers.
