Peach Preserves

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2014
This recipe fills approximately 24-26 4oz Ball jam jars. Used this recipe to make 4oz jam jars as the guest favor at my wedding. Remove RIPE peach skin with the following process: Make a small X at the base of the peach with a paring knife. Dip in boiling water for about 30 seconds to a minute. Dunk hot peaches into a bowl of ice water. Slip off the skins, but be careful now, the naked peaches are slippery. Once all measured peaches are back in the pot along with the sugar, the chunks need to be smashed up according to the consistency of jam you prefer. This is easily done with a potato masher. I put a round white sticker on top of the jar lid after sterilizing the jars in a water bath (used my All American Canner, a marvelous canning accessory!) and wrote each guests' name on it. That doubled my guest favor as a place marker for the seating arrangement. My wedding guests loved the gift, got fantastic reviews. One guest used it as an ice cream topping. Others just spread it on toast. I made several batches and they varied in consistency, not sure if this was due to not keeping the jam in the hot pot long enough to thicken more or if the ripeness of the peaches (or rather, lack of) influenced the overall result. The only "complaint" I got was that (and mostly only the men said this), "It's too sweet." Otherwise, very good, simple recipe, will use again and again.

Emily's Pickled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
Great recipe but it must be doubled to make enough liquid! Has a kick, the longer they sit, naturally, the more they have real bite. Let them sit for at least 2 weeks before trying one, but they reach their full potential after at least 6 weeks of sitting in the fridge. Added slices of white onion in the jar.

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
The flavor is not much different than your everyday deviled eggs recipe, for the extra effort needed to make the bacon and spend the extra few bucks for cheese, overall not worth it. Not to say that this recipe is not good but it's all "extra pizzaz".

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
Fantastic, it goes fast! Add chocolate chips. Only had whole cloves so I smashed them with a hammer in a ziploc bag (double bagged), used less then the recipe suggests and the taste is still great.
