Home cooking 101

Soups, stews, treats, and pepper sauce – all made from scratch and with love

Memaw always said heat the vinegar to extract “the heat” from the pepper

Measure out what you need in the jar, then heat to a simmer and remove from heat and pour over your peppers (you can leave them whole but remove the stems)

Slowly pour the vinegar over the peppers and set aside and let them cool and then put them in the fridge and forget about them for at least two weeks

The longer they sit in the fridge the hotter they will be and you can top up the vinegar by adding more hot vinegar to the peppers as it diminishes

I’ll eventually eat the peppers too but memaw said they are good for at least one year in the fridge – I’m gonna need a bigger jar 🤪

Currently I’m making stew with green cabbage

Fresh vegetables and herbs 🌿

It’s been simmering ten thousand years and I’m investing in a bigger pot soon

I also recently made spicy pasta

It was tasty and I’ll try different versions soon

Lots of fresh tomatoes, herbs, and peppers 🌶 🫑

Fresh garlic, olive oil, onions….

Tomatoes, more tomatoes, and a small tin of organic tomato sauce

I was out of penne pasta but had whole wheat spaghetti but used bow-tie noodles instead

I also added 3 bean trio cuz protein (it’s good)

Overall, my experimental spicy pasta was a hit (could make minor changes) (more garlic too)

And then, there’s the oatmeal peanut butter protein balls

Take 1 cup of peanut butter (a good one) and gently mix over low heat with 1 cup of maple syrup (a good one)

Once it has a light bubble – remove from heat (takes maybe 2-3 minutes) (maybe 5)

Add 1 cup of rolled oats by gently folding

I added flax and raw pumpkin seed to the mix – cuz tis the season 🎃

Put them in a better cooling tray and set in the fridge until they harden – then put in a storage container – these protein balls make around 2 1/2 dozen and could last you two weeks in the fridge but mine never go past 1 week

I could have used more oats cuz they were kinda sticky this time. Full of protein, vegan, and organic. That’s all for now. Gotta get back to the pot on the stove… 🤪
