Mr. Food

Thanks to Grandma O, IL for this recipe that appeared in the 9/27/10 newsletter. I made it for a family gathering last week and it was devoured quickly. At the end of the day there was only one tiny piece left, and I am convinced that no one ate it, as they would have felt obligated to wash the dish.

For Judy in Montana in reference to your Cranberry Conserve. I would like to make this to have for the holidays. Just wondering a couple of things. Can I use canned crushed pineapple. Also, do you think that a couple of dice jalapenos would work OK in it to give it a bite. I would like to have it to pour over a block of cream cheese to serve with crackers.
Thanks, in advance for your response.
Sara in FL

Sue (Cooky) in Indiana in reference to peppers. Do you think this method would also work for jalapeno peppers? I often let mine get too soft and spoil before I use them. It would be nice to have some in the freezer to have ready when I need them.

This is for VT Maid in PA. Thank you for the recipe for Spiced Tomato Jam. It's the first one I've seen with spices. I will definitely be trying it.
