'Tis the Season...

I am currently up to my ears in canning applesauce and grapejuice.
I hope to resurface in the not too distant future.

would you send me that recipe?

of course i will make a note of it - i had some excess juice so did the pickles in it sliced - one of the neighbors said they were the best sweet hot pickles he'd ever eaten - my first!

we've been eating the relish on our cheese and egg dishes - and, last week i made beef tamales and it was good on them.

you MUST wear gloves and use a food processor to chop the peppers - i was crying all day just from the fumes!

Thank you Nanc!

I know what you mean about the peppers and the food processor....heh....

I make my own tabasco style hot sauces, and a big favorite here is the chipotle sauce. The first time I made it, I had it boiled down to where I wanted it. I have a 'hand mixer' to puree things, so I happily stuck that dude in the mix and started mixing away. In about five minutes, everyone on the house is running outside so they could breathe. I had to throw all the doors and windows open, and I guess I am lucky I didn't kill anyone. They were all mad at first and then we had a good laugh after we could see again.

My wife said that her Dad learned the same lesson by grinding fresh horseradish in the *basement*.

sure thing, phelonius - i cried all afternoon - both times making this stuff.

once, my husband, after cutting open a habanero, stuck it up to his nose to smell and accidentally grazed his upper lip - OOOOOOEEEE - he said he was on fire for a week!

p.s. i made homemade beef tamales last week and put them in the freezer - pop took a couple to work yesterday and had some of the sauce on them - gave one to the boss' kid and he went nutz on it - i had sent two jars of it to their home and they said it was almost gone.

now, i know what to load up on in the garden next year!

Hey, benning, thanks for stopping by. I will have to check out your blog.

Nanc, you've got us thinking of LOTS of uses for applesauce. I am glad I made a bunch. Now, I just need to get an apple tree for my yard...if the stupid deer would leave the trees and plants alone I might have a decent garden next year.

sprinkle some of the cheap ground red cayenne pepper on the ground around your fruit trees and garden about once every two weeks or so - when they get a snootful of that, they head in the opposite direction - i also do this when we go camping so critters DO NOT come into our camp.

also, when you give your family haircuts, keep the clippings and dig them into the earth at the perimeter of your trees or garden - to a deer that is marked territory. they say this is also good to put into the ground around any plants where you have a problem with cutworm moths - like broccoli and brussel sprouts.

if phelonius comes back - i cannot stay on his site - don't know if there's a bug or add-on - which i've been having trouble with so have disabled quite a few of them.

I had not heard of using cayenne pepper...I will remember that ...

we have tried using hair but I guess we didn't get it around the whole garden.

Recently, I have had the same problem with Phel's blog. I really should let him know. Usually, I just refresh and all is good....sometimes it takes a couple tries.

Thank for your head's up on sciolist guys!

My partner in crime lives in NC and I live in Dallas, so it may take a couple of days to figure out what is up with all of that. Can you tell me what the page does or does not do when you first click on a link to it?

On Friday, October 05, 2007 11:02:00 AM, Blogger nanc wrote...

i click to it and it usually comes up long enough to read the post and then when i hit the comment button it goes directly to the i.e. error page.

it may be something with my p.c. - i've been having trouble with add-ons.
