Pickled Jalapenos ~ Freezing Jalapenos ~ Color Wheel

New recipe this year - pickled/canned jalapenos.  It not only eliminates the sugar, but the high priced pectin I use for cowboy candy.  I am sure we'll like it, and it cans so quickly.

I also froze a large pan of sliced jalapenos for meals over winter.  Tomatoes are slow to turn all at once.  Sort of frustrating, so I brought some in to turn red inside.  We'll see what gets canned next.

I finally bought myself a color wheel.  It will come in handy crocheting blankets to use up some yarn stash.

I'm in mid Michigan and our recent weather has been delightful - high 70s, low 80s and low humidity - but my tomatoes have been slow to ripen too. I think if we got a week of hot weather, they would take off.
