This tangy, clove- and cinnamon-infused relish is a tangle of colorful strips of bell and jalapeno peppers, sweet onions and sun-dried tomato. Great on on pork and lamb, amazing with savory stews like picadillos and tagines.
For the last three years I have been putting up significant amount of food for my family with the help of our CSA, farmer's market and our garden. I can, dehydrate and freeze the harvest. Here's my plan to preserve for 2014.
Blueberries are great candidates for jam-making because of their high level of pectin; lemon and thyme make them burst with flavor. This recipe comes to us from Karen Solomon, author of Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It.
Made this jam with out of season fruit from the grocery store when I was out of town, but it was so delicious that I'm definitely making it again this summer with really good sweet strawberries and peaches from our trees.
