Dill Dip
Thank you for a good but simple recipe that uses what I have on hand. I followed some suggestions by decreasing the mayo, increasing the sour cream, and using just a sprinkle of sugar. Also used purple onion since that was what I had. Hubby raved about it and wanted to know where I found such a great recipe! This is definitely a keeper.

Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce
This has been a wonderful way to preserve the bumper crop of tomatoes hubby produced this year. To make it simple (and to use the whole tomato) I just wash, stem, half, and then purée in the blender for a few seconds. Then I let it simmer on the stove along with the onion and garlic until it cooks down. That can take 2-4 hours. Like others have said, add the basil at the end. We freeze in quart zip lock bags for use all winter. Hubby likes it measured -- two cups to a bag. Thanks so much for a great recipe!

Real Fig Preserves
Oh, my, gosh! These are fabulous! The spices are perfect. Delanna is right. Fig preserves are better when they are not bland! I (almost) doubled the recipe. Did not have extra lemon juice so just used my last lemon and sliced thin. Also used ground ginger since that is what I had. Can't wait to make another batch while my fig tree is producing. Off to the store to buy more jars!
