It's October and the weather is changing fast. Leaves are falling, pumpkins are making there way onto porches. We all hate seeing the summer end but there is something special about the fall. We are all getting the soup pots out, gathering our old family
recipes together and checking the pantry's for supplies. What can be better then a hot bowl of chili and cornbread on a cold day.
I have put up jars of green tomato relish, peach chutney and tomato sauce. I also experimented with a couple large jars of whole peaches in Brandy.....for those cold winter days when a juicy fragrant peach will be the perfect end to a wet cold day. The brandy
is just a sweet addition.
So for those who relinquish there hold on summer and reluctantly enter the winter months just remember your childhood when your grandmother had a pot of homemade delight on the stove, or mom had hot cookies in the oven.
Dust off your recipe box and replenish your pantry and enjoy the winter cooking, creating and entertaining friends and family with your magnificent cooking ability.
I love seeing the exchange of recipes and the questions coming out. It's a sign everyone is getting into the mood.
