Beer Braised Irish Stew and Colcannon
This was excellent! I didn't have any dark beer so I just used regular beer but added a bit of molasses. I also only had a pound of stewing beef so decided to try something completely different - I added about a pound of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into cubes. Used red cabbage instead of green because that's what I had in the fridge. Gave the potatoes a unique colour. Overall, the flavour of the whole meal was superb - especially the potato, cabbage, bacon combination. And like others, I did not cook the cabbage in the microwave - I sauteed it a bit in the bacon pan. Definitely a keeper! (My mouth is watering just thinking of this dinner - we had it last night and I could eat it again tonight but, alas, no leftovers!)

Turkey Brine
After using this recipe for our recent Thanksgiving get-together of three families, I have been proclaimed the official turkey roaster. 12 out of 12 said it was the best turkey they ever tasted. (My son said it was the best turkey he had in the past 5 years. When I asked him whose turkey he had 5 years ago that was better he said that was merely as far back as his memory went!) The most difficult part of this recipe was finding a bucket large enough to accommodate the turkey. Then the bucket wouldn't fit into the fridge. I didn't feel comfortable leaving it out all night, so I found a large cooler, placed the bucket in there and surrounded it with freezer packs. It worked very well - it was still very cold the next morning. After checking out several "brine" recipes, I didn't read of anyone actually stuffing the turkey so I wasn't certain whether the stuffing would end up too salty. I stuffed it anyway, but rinsed the turkey with cold water first. It was excellent! Try this once and you'll never go back to your regular recipe!

Pickled Hot Peppers
These turned out quite well, but just a bit too vinegary. Maybe increase spices a bit to compete with the vinegar? Note: I initially wrote this review quite soon after canning the peppers. Now, 9 months later, I can say that these peppers are EXCELLENT!
