Been awhile....

and Once again it is Peach and Blueberry Recipe that brings me here,


Peach Blueberry Pork tenderloin  
1 Pork tenderloin
3 Peaches
1  Cup Blueberries
½ cup Juice ( I used apple) (Plus 14cup to make sauce if you want it)
 2 Tbs. Balsamic Vinegar
 ½ Tbs. brown sugar ( If you want it sweeter add more)
  1 Tbs. Cinnamon (pumpkin pie spice would be awesome too!)
   Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Tbs. Corn Starch if making a sauce with drippings.

Slice up peaches into wedges, Make slices along the top of the tenderloin and place a peach slice in each slice in the meat.  Place Tenderloin in the Crock pot and then put remaining peach slices around it. Dump in your blueberries.

Mix together juice, balsamic Vinegar, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Pour this mixture over your meat and Peaches.

I cooked my on low for 5 hours.  Used a spatula with holes to move meat, peaches, and berries to serving plate. Then used drippings to make a sauce.

To make  Sauce:
Poured dripping into sauce pan bring to boil. In a lidded bowl add 1/4 cup apple juice and 2 Tbs. corn starch. Place lid on bowl and shake till no lumps remain.  Pour this mixture into boiling dripping sand stir until thickened, but not too thick. I like it a bit thicker than gravy. But remember it will also thicken as it cools.

    Green Tomato Raspberry Jam

    So I had this tomato plant that was just going nuts growing all over the ground so yesterday morning I went out to stake it and tie it up. While doing that it lost allot of green tomatoes, I hated the ideal of just toss them so I put um a huge bowl and washed them up. Then I goggled things to make with green tomatoes. So today I made Green Tomato Raspberry Jam. I wasn't so sure about this when i got the ideal to try it, OK that said ... on several websites it said you could mince the green tomatoes up or put them in the food processor. I don't have a food processor so I minced them up. Started that out and  well it was not looking promising so I got out my blender and  used the puree setting and started a second batch. First batch turned into candied green tomatoes second batch turned out amazing!!  Well it hasn't cooled yet but warm it is so good! I could see myself making allot of this and trying different flavor's!

    2 cups green tomatoes
    2 cups white sugar
    1 package raspberry gelatin (3oz)



     Combine tomatoes and sugar in a large saucepan and bring 
    to a boil over  medium heat. 
    Stir and cook  20 minutes. Add the gelatin, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes.

     Spoon into jars or, pour into freezer containers 

    and refrigerate or freeze.












    First batch- Didn't break down stayed chunky 




    Personal note:
    Just tried to sneak Charlie some of the new jam he didn't fall for it ... he like's these mini pancakes with blackberry jam. I made him six and then I stacked um well he must of been on to me because he opened each stack before he ate them. He looked at me and said "Your not gonna get me with that one" and "I'm not gonna fall for that trick"
