Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
Ok, so after reading other reviews, I also "tweaked" my recipe. I give it 5 stars though because it's a good base recipe to start from. Instead of 1C sugar, I used 1/2C agave nectar and 2T sugar. I also used two eggs instead of one. I did not have walnuts, so I added a teaspoon of walnut extract. I made jumbo muffins (filled 6 tins EXACTLY), so my baking time was 30 mins. And since I'm lazy and didn't want extra dishes to wash, I mixed it all at once in one bowl. (I started with mashing the bananas first, then chucked the rest of the ingredients in the bowl.)I've just taken them out of the oven and they are nice and golden and smell wonderful! Next time I will use almond and flax flour to make them gluten free! Thanks for sharing, Sarah. :)

Jalapeno Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
I wanted to make a small batch of this recipe to test it first...after reading the other reviews, I modified mine a bit to compensate for oversweetness. I used 2C. crushed strawberries, 3 jalapenos (1 1/2 seeded) and 2 1/2C. sugar. I also used 1 oz. liquid pectin instead of powder, and added a pinch of salt. So far, from my tasting the pot, it is very yummy! It's got a little kick to it, but with a nice balance. Somehow, I managed to get 6 widemouth half pints out of this "small" batch. LOL I'm also wondering if I might have used a bit much pectin. The residue in the pot (which has been sitting 20 mins) has hardened. Hmmm....anyhow, this recipe is wonderful and makes a great base to start with. Next I plan on making some with agave nectar instead of sugar for a lower calorie version! :))
