What can you get for $3 and a dozen eggs?
All this apparently. I went to the Farmer's Market this morning and there was a man there with jalapenos from his hot house and this whole bunch of jalapenos was just $3. So I got those and then I traded 1 dozen eggs to a friend of mine for this beautiful asparagus. Look at it. Just lovely. We have finally planted some, but we won't be able to get a harvest from it until next year.
So after putting away some for our meals this week I still had quite a bit left and wanted to pickle some of it. My husband and I adore pickled jalapenos. We actually ran out about mid January and were quite sad. We put them on pizza, tacos, potatoes, frittatas, omelets etc. We use them on. everything. So I was glad to fill up this jar with the peppers. I hoe to put up many many more from our garden this year as well.
And just look at those asparagus. Again, I may enter those into the fair. They are (almost) too pretty to eat. I will sauté some up tonight as well for supper. Good stuff. The jalapenos are basically just vinegar and water and some pickling salt. I added garlic and dill to the asparagus mixture. Good eatin'!
If ya'll have been keeping up with my 2015 caning totals you can peak at it here.
Happy Homesteading Y'all!
