Pomegranate Pepper Jelly

After a very relaxing July 4th my parents and I made a trip to see one set of my grandparents in Louisville and after eating nothing but a slice of AMAZING German Chocolate Cake for Lunch we went to the gardens and my mom cleared off the north side of the pepper patch. 

This left us with only one question.... 
What will we do with all these peppers and chili's??
 ANSWER: Make Pepper Jelly! 

So we looked up a recipe online and adapted it a bit to meet our needs and what we could find at Kroger and got after it!

You can use this jelly on top of a block of cream cheese to eat with wheat thins for a quick and easy appetizer or pour on top of a pork loin and cook in the crock pot and serve with warm buttered biscuits! 

They also serve as great gifts or party favors. Something useful is always a great gift! Just tie a little ribbon around it secure it with a dot of hot glue and a notecard with your favorite use for it and a perfect grab and go hostess gift!

Hope you enjoy!

Small victory

Today I accomplished something big for me.... God got me up at 6:30 to exercise because Tuesdays a busy days... And if you know me... Sleep is something I don't give up easily.
And today I ran for 3 full minutes and accomplished my fastest mile to date...


It's not a fast mile by any means but even a few seconds off and the fact that I'm building up my endurance is a big deal because I have something big coming up at the end of the month... 
I'll tell you about that a little later when I get back to a computer. 

Have a terrific Tuesday !!
