Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2013
This is my to go recipe for banana bread. I have made it 10-15 times by now. If you follow the recipe exactly, you will have the best banana bread you have ever had. Photos attached are from the first time I made the loaf and I followed the recipe exactly. I have made many variations of this recipe by putting half whole wheat flour, using all whole wheat flour, adding allspice and/or cinnamon and/or nutmeg, adding crushed walnuts on top and/or in the mix. I even tried cayenne pepper and used margarine instead of butter;although not recommended. I got a fantastic loaf every time and it was delicious. Some tips: make sure your bananas are super ripe. the acidity helps the baking soda do its thing. the mix is bubbly before it goes in the oven. DO NOT OVER MIX. Mix only till the flour is mixed. make sure to toothpick your loaf around 1 hour. ovens are different and that last 5 minuets could turn a perfect loaf to a slightly dry loaf. cool it properly. Thank you Shelley Albeluhn for sharing.

Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
This jelly is so delicious. I had no issues with peppers moving to the top, or with it not setting up. I see in one of the photos the peppers have floated, and those chunks are really large compared to what I used. So maybe people aren't chopping fine enough. I didn't even drain my peppers, just threw everything in the pot. Beware, the vinegar/pepper/pectin will boil very quickly! My jelly is a wee bit liquid after 24 hours (not much though), but another commenter said to wait 5 days or so for it to fully set. You have to use the larger package of pectin, I used the Bernardin one rather than the smaller Certo I had on hand.
