This year was tough on the hot peppers, but I was able to get one good harvest with enough for a batch of pepper jam and a couple containers of pickled jalapenos. For awhile I was hoarding the last of the jam from 2014 but in celebration we got some blue cheese and did this.
We went to a closeout auction for a local antique shop and found a few ceramic crocks. I still want a really large one for sauerkraut, but these two should work well for fermenting tepache and red wine vinegar.
A BJ’s brew house just opened in North Little Rock. Even though they are a chain restaurant, their beer is pretty good and I can now get growlers to go any day. Finally I can get alcohol every day of the week again and don’t have to overstock beer for the weekend. The food is mediocre though.
Oh and here is a great idea for breakfast lunch or dinner.
