Cabbage Cabbage Cabbage

People have been asking, ” What do you do with so much cabbage.” Well let me tell you. Some of my cabbage weight as much as  5 1/2 pounds. I have made many cabbage rolls for the freezer, soup for the freezer . I made many different sauerkraut. We have had two different coleslaw salads. Shredded cabbage in fish tacos. My husband has put it in his smoothie. I assure you none of it has went to waste. I’m proud to say.

This is what I have been up to. Please let me know what you have been growing and preserving.

Happy Canning.

Many Ways To Use Marmalade

When I’m teaching a class I’m asked one question quite a bit; how should I use this jar? Well, when it comes to Marmalade there are many ways to use that jar. I know a lot of you are canning away with citrus. So here are a few ideas of what to do with those jars. 

 Marmalade works well when spread on roasted chicken or turkey to create a simple, sweet glaze. I like using my Meyer Lemon Rosemary marmalade for this one. 

 Pork Loin: Instead of using a chutney on your pork try some marmalade. I like using my Red Onion Marmalade for this one. 

Rice and grains can be so boring, so add some  marmalade. It adds a little hint of sweetness and interesting texture. My Orange Marmalade is great for this one.

 

 Wake up the most common vinaigrettes with a dollop of marmalade. I use my Orange Red Wine Marmalade for this.

Use it to dress up an Appetizer Plate.  Crackers, cheese and a good marmalade make for a  delicious appetizer spread. My Ginger Zucchini Marmalade is perfect here.

 

Make a glaze for Salmon. Just add a little soy sauce with the marmalade. I like using my Grapefruit Marmalade. 

If you make  flatbread-type pizzas at home, try marmalade, blue cheese and prosciutto next time. All In A Jar’s Meyer Lemon Cranberry marmalade is excellent for this dish. 

How about a grilled cheese sandwich with brie cheese? My Apricot Marmalade is delicious on these sandwiches.

You can use it to bake with too. I have put it in breads and muffins. The other day I made corn bread muffins with my Meyer Lemon Rosemary Marmalade. I put 1/4 cup marmalade in the muffins and made a glaze for the top of the muffin. They must have been great. I only got one. My husband is the suspect here. 

I bet you didn’t know there were so many different kinds of marmalade.

What’s your favorite way to use marmalade?
