|Our central Pennsylvania version of Mexican pickled jalapenos and carrots|
Bel and I really miss southern California for all the hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurants. They were as ubiquitous as Italian restaurants are here or Teriyaki restaurants are in the Seattle area. And one thing we loved about them, was the pickled jalapeno and carrot bar. Don't misunderstand me when I say "bar". The jalapeno bar was less like a large salad bar and more like a condiment choice -right next to the ketchup and hot sauce. The jalapenos and carrots usually came in pre-measured sandwich baggies.
I share all that to say that Bel has brought SoCal in a jar to central PA. All I want to know is how long do we have to wait? As soon as they're ready, they'll be gone!
|Our stash of 2010 apple and 2011 strawberry wine just before bottling the apple and racking the strawberry.|
We bottled 10 gallons of 2010 apple wine and racked this summers crop of strawberry wine last week. We're very excited about the strawberry wine. It's our first ever batch. But we have to wait until Labor Day 2012. The apple wine will be ready around Christmas this year.
