Sweet Zucchini Relish
We love the flavor of this zucchini relish and found that it is easier than I thought to can. One reader mentioned concern over the safety of canning this recipe. Their concern was over the acidity, because of the addition of peppers and onions. However, this recipe actually calls for less peppers then the Ball book of home preserving. That means there should be no issue or concern with the hot water bath method of canning as long as you follow directions. I actually like this recipe better then the Ball recipe because of the seasonings used here. Also, this recipe calls for one less pepper resulting in what I feel is a better flavor. I do add one half teaspoon of mustard seed because I like that flavor included in my relish. Two recommendations, 1) you could use ClearJel (a modified cornstarch made to withstand heat) instead of the cornstarch. Mix the clear gel with the sugar first before adding it to the rest of the mixture. 2), leave 1/2 inch headspace in the canning jar and you will run into less problems. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Cinnamon Swirl Bread for the Bread Machine
I've made this a few times now and it comes out great every time. I love being able to use the bread machine to get most of the work done - it makes it a breeze. The flavor of this bread is terrific. The first time I doubled the sugar, butter and cinnamon as some recommended, but this made it too sweet and too sloppy. After that, I've just doubled the cinnamon because I love the flavor of cinnamon and like it really prominent in the bread. I don't use the walnuts out of personal preference and in recognition that the weight of the nuts will weigh the bread down. It comes out light, fluffy and is especially good when warm. If there are leftovers, try warming them up for a few seconds in the microwave. Yum!! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

General Tsao's Chicken II
Excellent recipe. You might be inclined to want to take short cuts with cooking the chicken, but following the recipe results in crispy chicken that keeps its crispiness even for leftovers the next day. Worth the extra step of frying twice. I did try it by replacing the sugar with equal amount of orange marmalade and loved that too (although perhaps that makes it orange chicken?) At any rate, everyone loves it and says it tastes even better than the chinese restaurant. ok, perhaps they are just being kind, but this recipe is good enough that I've made it quite a few times with hardly any changes.
