Coffee Jelly!

   The other day, I shared on my FB page that I had just made some Coffee Jelly for my hubby and MANY of my followers requested the recipe.  Here it is for y'all to enjoy!

Coffee Jelly Recipe, uses for coffee, unusual flavors of jelly,


Coffee Jelly

4 cups VERY strong brewed coffee
1/4 c. lemon juice
5 1/2 cups sugar
1 box Surejell

     Stir the coffee, lemon juice and Surejell together in a large pot.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  As you are waiting, prepare your jars by either running them through the heat cycle of your dishwasher; boiling them for 10 minutes; or putting them in a warm oven for 15 minutes.  Also, put on a pot of water to boil for processing.   Once the coffee reaches a full boil, stir in the sugar and return to a boil and let it boil for one minute.  Remove the pan from heat and ladle it into the hot prepared jars.  It should make 6 of the half-pint jars.  Water bath can the jars for 10 minutes.

Egg Salad Recipe



      Since we have our own chickens, we have a LOT of eggs so we eat a lot of eggs too.  We have eggs for breakfast nearly every morning (scrambled, fried, poached, over easy or we make omelets).  One way we love to have eggs for lunch is by having egg salad sandwiches (which are soooooo good).

                                         12 boiled eggs                          1 c. mayonnaise
                                         2 T. brown mustard                   2 T. pickle relish
                                         1 T. parsley flakes                    1 T. lemon juice

Extra Crispy French Fries

   Our family loves french fries...especially if they are homemade and nice and crispy.  We have figured out the key to this and thought we'd share what we have learned.
 
      To do this, you can use frozen fries you have purchased or just peel up some potatoes and slice them (thick or thin, whatever you prefer).  Once the fries are cut, soak them in a bowl of water with 2 tsp. of corn syrup. If you are soaking a lot of french fries, just add a bit more corn syrup.  Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30-45 minutes.

How to make crispy fries like McDonalds, extra crispy french fries




     Remove, drain and heat your french fryer until it is nice and hot.  Carefully drop in the french fries (a few at a time) and fry them for exactly 90 seconds.  Remove from the hot oil and refrigerate for 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes, add them to hot oil and fry them until done.

    I know it sounds like a big ordeal but it is well worth the extra time and effort.

Honey Glazed Carrots in the Crock Pot

Honey glazed carrots recipe



   These honey glazed carrots are so delicious.  I made 2 pounds to go with our supper and my family of four at them all.  Not even one carrot coin was left over...they are THAT good.

     You will need:

  • 2 pounds of carrots, cut into carrot coins
  • 4 T. of butter
  • 6 T. of honey
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

    Spray the inside of your crock pot and turn the crock pot onto high.  Place the carrots into the crock pot and pour on the melted butter and honey.  Sprinkle on the spices and place the lid back on the crock pot.  Cook for 4 hours.

    Enjoy!

Tactical Flashlight

   We love flashlights in our home.  We try to keep a flashlight in every room of the house and in our car.  I even carry a flashlight in my purse.  You never know when you may need one.  Also, we live in Oklahoma and you never know when the electricity may go out due to a storm. 

Guardian 1300TL tactical flashlight


    This tactical flashlight is really great.  It is the Guardian 1300TL and is part of Supernova's Professional Series of tactical LED flashlights.  It is really bright (1300 lumens) and professionally made.  It comes in a nice case that includes the flashlight, 2 lithium rechargeable batteries, 3 AAA batteries, and the charger. 

Guardian 1300TL tactical flashlight


    I really like that you can use the rechargeable lithium batteries or just plain AAA batteries to operate it.  It also has a ridged strike Bezel for self defense or use the flashlight's strobe mode to blind/disorient an assailant.  The finish of the flashlight is scratch resistant and shock proof and looks really nice to boot.

Gripsafe Silicon Gloves

heat resistant gloves

  These gripsafe silicon gloves are made to replace a pot holder.  With the raised parts, you will be able to hold things better than a pot holder.  They are heat resistant up to 450 degrees.  They state that you can hold hot pans, etc. with them but we removed a cookie sheet from the oven and attempted to carry the pan into the other room and it started to burn through before we got there.  Just removing something from the oven is good but don't attempt to hold anything more than a few seconds.

Speedmintion


   Speedminton is not just a badminton set...it's better.   Our whole family took turns playing and we had a blast.  No complicated set up, just grab the rackets and play.  And the birdie can even light up so you can play at night with ease.
