Spicy Peach Leather Rollups

peach by ec yew.

Spicy Peach leather

2 pounds peaches, peeled, pitted and pureed 3 cups sugar 2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 Tbsp. dried red peppers(OPT.)
Peel, pit, puree and place peaches in a pot. Add sugar and lemon juice. Over medium heat, stirring often, bring to a boil.

Pour thin layers of peach puree onto large, nonstick, shallow pans. Tilt pans to move puree around until thin - but not too thin - and evenly dispersed.

Place sheets in lowest temperature oven. When no longer wet to touch but not crisp-dry (like the texture of leather), remove from oven. Allow to cool. Peel from pan.

On a cutting board, cut into 2 1/2-by-3-inch rectangles. Roll into short side. If removed before too dry, the rolls will stay together.

Roll the peach leather rolls in sugar and store in an airtight jar, zip-close bag or wrap in plastic wrap.

Red and Green Christmas Jalapeno Jelly

"1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped jalapeno pepper
5 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
1 (6 fluid ounce) container liquid pectin
This is really great poured over room temperature cream cheese and served with crackers of your choice.
Remove stems, veins and most of the seeds of the bell and jalapeno peppers. Mince peppers in a food processor.
In a 5-quart pot over high heat, combine bell peppers, jalapenos, sugar and vinegar. Bring to a rolling boil; boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes.
Stirring constantly, add the pectin and let mixture continue to cool for 2 minutes more. Now stir for 1 minute.
Pour into hot, sterilized jars and top with sterilized lids. Secure lids with bands and allow jars to cool slowly, creating a vacuum seal." We also like it on cornbread.

4 Tablespoons Applesauce
1 t soda + 1 C sour milk* (or buttermilk)

Mix all dry ingredients together, then add wet ingredients

*you can make 1 cup of sour milk by adding 1 cup
of skimmed milk or soy milk to 3 Tablespoons vinegar.

Eating Hint:
I like to add tiny diced jalapenos in the mix (1 tsp.) A little sweet a little hot.
Cut Johnny Cake into pie shaped pieces (6 per pan). Then cut
a piece in half so that top is one-half and the bottom is the
other half. Place on a plate and cover with syrup.
Eat and enjoy! Mmmmm!

This receipe was adapted from one that my 74 yr old mother had
in her receipe file and I think she got it from her mother."

    Cooking At The River -Shrimp

    Y'all know I love camping & cooking @ the river.
    We had a big shrimp boil there one night & of course the MAIN course was brew!
    We had our "School bus converted into a motor home" that lived @ the river, so we'd always have our own spot. Anyway, we decided we would get drunk and boil a bunch of shrimp. Now you must know that our bus was parked up on a hill as the river tended to flood @ times. The guys got shovels, knives and other implements of destructions and dug a stairway down to the beach, as it seemed a lot easier than just rolling down!
    So the women got everything ready, and the men got drunk.!!
    After everyone got stuffed, my ex bravely proclaimed that he would take all the shrimp hulls down to the beach so the coons could eat them.
    Soon we heard this thump, thump and yowl. We all went running to see what had happened & he (carrying beer flats full of shells) slipped on the steps!
    On his way back up, all of us just cracked up as he had shrimp hulls all hanging in his long, blonde hair, clinging to his shirt and shorts and smelling like a fish market!!
    Oh, by the way ,drop shrimp into seasoned boiling water until it turns pink.
    Those beer flats make excellent shrimp receptecles. We also use them for Mud Bug Boils.
