Daunted by canning, no more, I've leapt in with both feet. This sweet & gingery chutney was wholey inspired by the abundant baskets of fruit at a local farmers market. Packed with organic pears, apples, dried cherries & spices, it is warmth in a jar.
One of my favorite flavor combinations is sweet and heat and I couldn't wait to try pickling a combination of peppers in a sweet pickling brine. I used a combination of jalapeño, cayenne, and banana peppers.
The lovely rosy, red okra I found in my CSA box last week deserved more than just being chopped up in a salad. So, I decided to give them the star treatment and made delightful sweet and spicy pickles out of them.
