~ Blackberry Jelly & Peppers , Peppers , Peppers ~

Yesterday , I made some blackberry jelly. I wasn't going to make any this year since I have 2 jars left from last year , but I couldn't resist. So now I have 6 more jars to add to the pantry.

My sweet bell peppers and banana peppers are showing out this year. I've never had sweet peppers do this well , they're huge , perfect except for the dirt , I took this pic before I washed them. I 'm planning to make stuffed peppers one evening for supper.
Today I will be pickling the banana peppers. We love pickled banana rings on salads , sandwiches or just about anything we eat. I like to eat them raw with my meals too.

The cayenne will be pickled today also , they're doing pretty good. I will pickle them whole.
The jalapenos aren't doing so good , but the few I have will be cut up and froze. I use the frozen peppers in spaghetti sauces , meatloaf or anything I want to add a little heat and spice to.

So I'll be busy in the kitchen today ....... yesterday I did grocery shopping , made jelly and worked in the garden. We had a storm Sunday night and some of the corn was laying down. Dh and I stood it up and pulled dirt around them , hope the sun draws them back to normal.

Talked to my Aunt a little while ago , they still haven't found her grandson. Thank ~ You so much for your Prayers !

Love stuffed peppers. Your gardens are already producing. Here, it's the end of July/beginning of August before we start having an abundance of produce. Although, we already had the spinach and a few baby carrots.

I hope they find that boy.

I wonder if he is with
one of his friends? I am
sure they probably checked.
But sometimes they might be
with a friend a parent doesn't

Lifting Up Prayers that he
will come home soon and they
will work everything out between themselves!!! Let's be in agreement
that he will come home today!!!

Yummy Produce!

God Bless You and Yours!!!
