Happy Birthday, blog, you are 1 yr old today!!! Most people think of cakes to celebrate a birthday, well, not me. We are celebrating this birthday with a recipe I couldn't have eating this time last year. Jalapenos were on my naughty list, anything with spicy heat was out of the question but I tried them & everything went well, so I have been eating them like crazy. Oh, how I have missed things like this. It's spicy but sweet, with a little savory onion action going on. We served this immediately, on a fantastic pork burger, you see above. But it's even better the next day. I also just learned the SECRET to the perfect pork burgers, are you ready? In a food processor, process 5 strips of bacon with a clove of garlic. Then mix in to 1lb ground pork. The fat from the bacon, gives you that perfect juicy burger, there ya go!!
2 cups (16 oz) sliced peaches, thawed or fresh
3/4 tsp pectin
1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tsp dried jalapenos (use more for fresh, depending on how much heat you prefer)
2 tablespoons red onion, diced
1/2 tsp red wine vinegar
In a saucepan, over medium high heat, add peaches, pectin, sugar & lemon juice. Bring to a boil for about 2 minutes then reduce to medium heat. Add jalapenos, stir occasionally until mixtures begins to thicken and coats the back of a spoon (about 8-10 minutes). Remove from heat & place peach mixture in food processor (blender) & pulse until the consistency is of chunky sauce. Place sauce in a bowl, stir in red onions & red wine vinegar. Cover & place in refrigerator for several hours to allow flavors to marinate.
Makes about 1 cup
