Bob's Habanero Hot Sauce - Liquid Fire

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
AMAZING!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I made 5 batches of this recipe .. I got 10 pints of REALLY good sauce! Based on others reviews, I bought the peaches in lite syrup & our neighbor had just given us fresh honey, so I used honey instead of molasses. And I had SO many habaneros, that I used 24 per batch vs the 12 it called for!! I canned this (water bath process) for 20 minutes based off of others reviews. My husband eats it like salsa & chips - He loves anything hot & spicy!! Last night for dinner, I marinated a bag of chicken wings with a jar of the sauce, then grilled them outside on the grill. My husband cooked half of them just as was after marinated & half he basted with more sauce while he grilled them. We have 4 kids (7,5,3&1) The whole family LOVED them!! The ones that were just marinated only were delicious! And the ones that were marinated + basted were perfectly spicy!! I am so in love with this sauce!! I wish now, I would have made 10 batches instead of doubling the peppers & only making 5 .. it is SO good! And it is SO easy to prepare!! PS I used French's yellow mustard - just the amount it calls for. Not sure why some are saying the mustard is too strong?! The sauce is amazing!! I am thinking that I could have used ANY kind of peaches & been fine, Next year I'll test to find out!

Budget Berry Jam

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
I made 12 batches of this jam!! I had a LOT of green tomatoes to use! But, I am wondering if anyone can tell me why about half of the batches didn't set, they are ice cream topping consistency?? The first time I didn't do a single batch, so I thought maybe that was why .. but I did ALL the rest one by one, canning them in water bath for 15 minutes and then each time starting the process completely over. I have a flat top stove, so it is REALLY hard to keep the temperature perfect - especially if you are using more than one burner - the whole thing is just hot! I cleaned/cut bad spots from tomatoes, put them in the blender (skin, seeds & all) then cooked them with the sugar for 20 minutes, then added the jello & then did the canning process. Any suggestions? I used Jello brand jello - the regular/original kind. Strawberry & Raspberry flavors. I'm still excited none the less, just wondering if anyone has some helpful hints! I wasn't exactly sure how to get tomato pulp - was putting them in the blender right or wrong? Please & thank you for any and all helpful pieces of advice! :)
