I finally got a chance to make some pepper jelly with part of the slew of jalapenos coming in from our garden. My daughter and I put up 32
jars of it today. This is our first canning experience together, and it was a lot of fun. I still have at the very least twice the amount of peppers that I used today already harvested, and still more coming in every day. I am looking for new recipes to use some of the remaining peppers in so if you know of any by all means leave a comment.
A few years back a friend sent us a gift basket from Texas with various goodies from the state.
One of my favorites from the basket was jalapeno peanut brittle, so I think I'll see if I can find a recipe for that.
Today was rainy off and on here so the kids had to play indoors. They spent some of their time pretending to be a baby rabbit in a box. A few weeks ago they had a little rescued orphan bunny that they tried to raise. It only made it for a few days, but they really enjoyed it and were all heartbroken when it died. Doesn't Scooter make a cute little rabbit all cuddled up.
Here are a few pictures taken earlier this week. We had some very mild weather, and everyone enjoyed a break from the intense heat and humidity.
