Have I told you about my new recipe?

I’m obsessed with my new Blackberry BBQ sauce. It goes well with grilled chicken, ribs and steak. It has a little berry, heat, spice and smoky flavor to it.

My blackberries were loaded this year. I have put some in the freezer, so I can share this recipe with students. 

Thanks to my wonderful students for booking up July. We are now booking August. We have some great recipes

for August, Blackberry BBQ Sauce, Tomatillo Relish, Thyme Fig Jam, and Apple Fig Chutney. The first two students that sign up for this class get

TWO jars of the BBQ Sauce. All students will go home with a jar from each recipe we make and the recipes. We will start by having a tour of the garden

then go in for a snack and then start canning. We will be sitting down at the end of class to share a meal together. 

Looking forward to having you here at All In A Jar’s Farm. 

See you in class

Wow, Pumpkin Jam Is So Good

 

This is a Portuguese recipe I found and couldn’t wait to try it. Let me make this clear, I DID NOT CAN THE PUMPKIN. The pumpkin is too dense for us to can the bacteria out to be safe. I made half pints and put them in the freezer. 

 So far I have place some pumpkin jam on toasted bread with goat cheese, topped with roasted pumpkin seeds and a few pomegranate seeds. Very yummy.

The other day I was talking with my sister and she said “ what about ravioli.” My mind was spinning with ideas and ingredients. The next day I was at the store gathering ingredients for my new recipe, Pumpkin Ravioli. 

I used one half pint jar of the pumpkin jam with some ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese , a little nutmeg and an egg. Whipped it together and placed a dollop in a wonton wrapper,( yes, I use wonton wrappers for ravioli), ran water on the outside edge of the wrapper, folded it over and sealed the wrapper. I placed some of the ravioli on a cookie sheet with flour and put them in the freezer and then placed the ravioli in a plastic bag and froze them for later.  

I used a shallow pan to boil the ravioli and keep a close eye on them. They only take a few minutes to cook. 

For the sauce, I made a brown butter sage with some toasted pecans. Out of this world. 

I’m still thinking of ways to use it,  maybe baking with it next.  

I will let you know what I come up with. 

See you in class 

Happy New Year

What a wonderful year we had here at All In A Jar. So much fun with students coming to classes. The garden provided us with a lot of wonderful produce to work with. We are very excited about the 2020 garden as it is coming in strong. We will have a lot to work with this year. 

I have worked on the class calendar for 2020.

 We have pickles, jams, jelly, scrubs, chutney, pie filling, fermented pickles, fermented cabbage, fruit leather, marmalade and relish. Please take a look at the recipes and let me know if I missed something you would like to learn. 

    

All In A Jar wants to wish you and yours a Happy New Year!

Let it be safe, fun and full of laughter. 

See you in class
