Wednesday Wonderings

Happy Wednesday all. Sorry I missed yesterday. We ground 56 stumps.. left early, got home late. I'll try to play catch-up with everyone soon.

First.... do you like to read? Then leave a comment on HERE to be entered into a drawing for a $20 Gift Card from Amazon.

Second....the winners have been announced for The Long and the Short of It's Short Story contest. These wonderful stories will ba appearing on our site for the next few weeks. Don't miss this chance for some good, quick reads.

Third.... hmmm... let's see. The garden is doing well. I've started picking daily now. Anybody have any great recipes for hot peppers? They are doing REALLY well!

Fourth.... we have to work again today.... hopefully, it won't be as long a day, or as tiring a day. Fingers crossed!

Fifth.....what are your plans for the Fourth of July? We were hoping to go to the shore, but it doesn't look like we're going to make it, so I'm wondering what everyone else is going to be doing.

A recipe for hot peppers...hmmmm. how about hot pepper jelly?
4 green peppers
12 hot peppers, about 1/2 cup
6-7 cups sugar depending on how sweet you want it
1 1/2 c white vinegar
2 6oz bottles liquid pectin

In a large pot, place peppers that have been ground fine, (use juice and pulp), sugar and vinegar. Bring to a full boil; reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes. Add green food coloring and pectin. Stir well. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat; reduce heat and boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and pour mixture into hot dry, sterilized half-pint jars, leaving a scant 1/4-inch head space. Seal immediately. Process in a hot water bath for 15 minutes; remove jars and let cool upright.

have fun and enjoy

For the fourth we are going camping.

Hope that you are well rested after your workout. We are going to a friend's lovely bar-b-q which is the ultimate.
