News from the Nest, June 19

Happy Day!

I’m starting to realize that one gauge of my accomplishments is how sore my back and bones are at the end of the day. And, according to my back still this morning, I was VERY busy this past weekend. Now, I need to figure out what exactly I did!

Not that this is the cause of my aching back, but this past week I did work on two new, very easy, and useful knit projects to share in the next week or two.

This Stoplight Pepper Jelly has flecks of red and orange bell peppers and green jalapeño peppers, making the most delicious appetizer and beautiful hostess gift! You can water bath can it or refrigerate/freeze it…your choice. I provide instructions for both.

Here are some of our favorite recipes that use summer’s bounty:

  • Roasting tomatoes takes tomatoes to a new level by reducing the liquid and concentrating the flavor. It’s a great way to use those less flavorful tomatoes.

  • No joke, my mouth starts to water when I think of this tomato jam! It’s sweet, tangy, spicy, and smoky – all at once!!
  • And, last but certainly not least…our Jar-By-Jar Dill Pickle recipe. This recipe has been in the top ten of this site’s most popular articles for the past four years! In fact, I need to put up a jar today! I love that I can make a jar at a time as I have enough fresh cucumbers.

  • And if you are looking for a bit more of a crochet challenge, you’ll love making these Thermal Stitch Potholders! IMHO, the thermal stitch was designed for potholders!

Well my friends, I have so many items on my to-do list that I really want to check off this week. Wish me luck!

And my wish for you is that you do whatever you need to do, or don’t do, this week.

Until next week!

Thanks for making my day by SHARING!!
