Peach Butter with Honey in Slow Cooker

It was a long time, but I’m back to business.

Late summer is great time for pick-your-own fun. I made this  butter with peaches from Hillview Farms. Donut yellow peaches were awesome and we ate them fresh and raw, but wanted more. Peach Butter is easy to make – just add everything to slow cooker and forget about it for a while. Recipe adapted from

Pineapple-Mango Relish

I found small jar of pineapple-mango salsa in local Home Goods, it looks interesting, so I made picture of ingredient list and made my own condiment. I love store-bought sauces, but I had pineapple and mango at home. It’s very good thing (I’m not sure how to name it, but I made it like my favorite Sweet Pepper Relish. It’s sweet and sour, with a little hot kick.

P.S. Kitchen renovation means paper plates…

Sweet Pepper Relish

I tried red pepper relish in BB&B store with tiny toast and love it, but price was not very lovely, so I found easy recipe and made my own red pepper relish.  Very good addition for so many meals – from salads to omelets, hot dogs and chicken fingers.
