canned peaches in a light honey syrup

IMG_9522

Over the past couple of years my pattern has been to share 1 canning recipe a summer.  Two years ago it was low-sugar blackberry jam and last year I shared low-sugar strawberry-rhubarb jam.  I love that fact that when you can foods yourself you can control the amount of sugar that goes into them.  While […]

Hey, hey!  It  sure feels like ages since I’ve been here on my little space.  Really it’s only been a couple of weeks, but they’ve been busy around our parts.  Before I share more about that, let’s get into the reason for this post — it’s secret recipe club time!  The recipe I selected, mango […]

Do you use tomatillos often?  I actually just really got into them a couple of years ago.  Before that I know I’ve had them in store bought salsa or when someone else cooked for me, but they weren’t something I bought very often.  If you aren’t familiar with them, meet them!  Tomatillos are in the […]
