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.

Hori Hori Gardening Knife

    The Hori Horit gardening knife is really neat.  I had never seen a knife that was made primarily for gardening so I wasn't really sure what to expect.

     This knife is a cross between a digging tool, a trowel and a knife.  It has a 7 1/2" knife blade.  The blade is sturdy and is made of stainless steel.  The handle is very nice and enables you to get a nice grip on it too.  
 
     The entire knife is cold-resistant, which makes it suitable for any kind of weather.  One feature that we really like about it is that one side of the blade has a depth scale on it so you know exactly how deep you are digging.  Super cool.

Electric Pencil Sharpener

    This is a really nice electric pencil sharpener by ImiKas. It is high quality and uses multiple powers sources, such as via AC, battery or USB.  It is super quiet but extremely powerful.

     This sharpener is really good because you can also choose how sharp you want your pencil.  Choose from Blunt, Medium, or Sharp.  Love that!!!!

Samurai Kendama

   The Samurai Kendama is really neat.  We received the Blue Samurai Stroke (which is the brand new 2015 Pro Design) to review and we are NOT disappointed.  It is amazing!!!!



Samurai Kendama

    
      We got this for our teenage son but to be honest, my hubby and I played with it for a week before we ever gave it to him.  It's ADDICTING!  So much fun that you just can't stop playing it.
    
   I wasn't even sure what a Kendama was at first but found out that it's a traditional Japanese wooden toy and we think it'll become a US craze real soon.  There are 3 cups that you try to catch the ball in and a challenging spike.  We only have tried the largest cup so far and have spent HOURS playing with it.  I don't think we'll be bored with it any time soon.

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!
