Homemade Barbecue Sauce – Natural Sweetener, No HFCS

Homemade Barbecue Sauce – Natural Sweetener, No HFCS

Homemade Barbecue Sauce Who doesn’t love homemade barbecue sauce! This basic recipe is a one-pot sauce, easy to make, delicious and adjustable to suit your tastes. It’s a great addition another one-pot recipe, Baked Beans, and a dipping sauce even kids who usually only like ranch-style sauces will like.

It’s always a…

Garden Fresh Salsa – Garden to Plate in an Hour

Garden Fresh Salsa – Garden to Plate in an Hour

Garden Fresh Salsa I’m in the kitchen with Taylor this week while we use the seemingly endless supply of tomatoes and hot peppers. We’re using a variety of tomatoes – a plum-shaped volunteer, Luci (round, 6 oz), Juliet, Cherokee Purple and Bobcat, to make garden fresh salsa. The Bell peppers are a big, thick-walled variety called King of the North from Fedco. German Extra Hardy garlic did very well this year but I had to water it often to keep…
