33  Super Simple Pickled Peppers in Vegetarian / Vegan by MissingWillow on: October 01, 2015 12:45:22 PM
I spent about an hour this morning pickling jalapenos from our garden.  It was so easy, I thought I'd share the process with you guys.  We use pickled jalapenos in a lot of stuff around here like chili, breakfast burritos and all sorts of Mexican dishes. 



We grew a bounty of peppers and garlic in our garden this year in raised beds.  Most of the peppers we grow are too dang hot to consider pickling but our jalapenos are outstanding and need to be preserved.  This is my second batch so far.



The ingredients are just too simple.  Peppers, vinegar, water and garlic.  I also added a habanero to each jar but that's totally optional. 

The ratio is 3 parts vinegar to one part water and I always eyeball the total amount of liquid needed for the peppers we have on hand.  I ended up with 5 and a half pints of pickled peppers for this batch and I used 4.5 cups of vinegar to 1.5 cup of water.  Before we figured out this gardening stuff, I would pickle a single jar at a time (I'm retired, I have the time) so I know this is totally scaleable. 

I sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for 10 minutes and while that is happening, I brought the water and vinegar mixture to a boil.


After fishing the hot jars out of the water bath, I put a garlic clove, a whole habanero in each jar and filled the rest with sliced jalapenos. 


Then I poured the hot vinegar/water mixture on top until it filled the jar to about 1/3 inch from the top.  Screw the sterilized lids on top and put them back in the water bath.


They gently boil with the lid on for 10 minutes.  Take the lid off, take the pot off the heat and remove them after 5 minutes.  Store in your pantry just like you would the store bought kind.

She does it again!  That is awesome!  I love the shape of the house and the 'I Love Halloween'.  I mistakenly posted my house in our other board because I'm a dufus.  Ever have one of those days?


I received my very first chunky barn from Pottermouth and I adore it!  It appears that Trotter's Barn has taken a bad turn... What's that peeking from the hayloft?  The door opens and...



Oh Flock!  LOL!  Zombie sheep!  I just adore this and it will stay out year round with my zombie sheep collection!



The back is equally awesome, check out how she put that head in a jar.  Your skills amaze me, Pottermouth.  Thanks so much for adding this amazing barn to my neighborhood!

35  Halloween Coasters in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: September 30, 2015 11:34:11 AM
I made these haunted house coasters for Abbeeroad in the One Tiny Halloween Thing swap.  She mentioned that she would appreciate something practical and likes haunted houses so this is what I came up with.   

I found the design at embroidery library, it was the perfect size and stitched up pretty quick. 


The back sides were harvested from some fun fabric I had in my stash.  I just love the images!

My OTT from Abbeeroad came in the mail today and is just the CUTEST THING EVER!  She did a woodburned block (impressed with your skills!) wrapped in butcher's twine.  I can't decide which is the front and which is the back.  I'll just have to turn it a few times a day.   Cheesy

This is just adorable.  Pumpkin spice latte (my favorite Fall obsession)


And the perfect haunted house image on the back.  Thank you so much!
