    Some of the Jelly's. The light green ones be the grape an the dark green ones be jalepeno. If ya never tried jalepeno jelly you should. Very nice, just a hint of heat on the back of it, great on a english muffin with canadian bacon an eggs on the side!

    Gettin low on both, bout time to make some more, jalepeno can be made anytime a the year cause we can get em. The grape, well gotta wait till fall and see how this years crop comes out! Have to see how the apple tree does this year to, hmm, apple jelly ain't all bad niether!:D

    have you tried dandelion jelly?... not nearly as repulsive as it sounds...

    most sweets are TOO sweet for me & I end up diluting (ruining?) them :cry:

    Have you tried grape wine. I found this recipe in a cookbook from Texas. I tried it last year and it turned out fine. The Rooster had me make him some with not as much sugar.

    1 qt. grapes
    1 qt. water
    3 cups sugar

    Mix the grapes, water and sugar. Place in a gallon glass jar. Put on lid and set in a cool dark place for 90 days. Then strain & bottle.
