  1. Thanks Bel! I'm going to give the pepper recipe a try. I'm also going to see if I can round up a few grape leaves for the pepperoncinis.

  2. Ooo, I like that you did the recipes per jar. Very helpful! Usually I'm trying to figure out if I have enough veggies for the recipes. This is a much better way to write them out.

  3. Apple Pie Gal, smiles back at you.

    Robin, You're welcome. You'll have to let us know what the grape leaves do.

    Leigh, per jar is great because Bel can do five jars or ten, depending on the yield.
