No knitting today. I woke up to a cool autumn breeze and the pitterpatter of rain, and I knew I had work ahead of me.Time to bring in the last of the green tomatoes before they rot.
Next up was the jalapenos. My plan was always to make some hot pepper jelly for someone on my Christmas list with them.
I didn't get as many peppers as I'd hoped, but I was quite proud of my modest harvest. That is until I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few more - just to make sure I had enough...
This was my first time making jelly, so I was a little nervous, but it's surprisingly simple.
Dad had asked, that if I had any peppers left, could pickle some for him (He likes to slice them up and put them on sandwiches. As it turned out, my meager little pepper harvest was actually enough for the jelly (you only need 2/3 of a cup!) so I had all the store bought peppers and lots of jars.
