Boy do I have A LOT to talk about tonight! First of all, I have a ton of energy for some reason!!! (couldn't be the nice cream with peanut butter and pretzels I just had...) Anyways, I forgot to post about my newest recipe a couple of days ago...pickled watermelon rind. I have been munching on it all week; it is just so good. A perfect sweet, crunchy, salty, tart topping to just about anything.
Here is the recipe. I only used the rind of 1/2 a watermelon and just tweeked the amounts of the other ingredients to suit my palate. Considering I have made pickles before, I kind of knew what I was doing, but if you are unsure don't hesitate to ask as canning is one of my favorite things to do! (Speaking of...I can't wait for fresh peaches and apricots to make some jam-it's the only other jam I like besides strawberry and blueberry)
Just thought I'd show you my favorite book from Harper! Haha, just kidding, this is my least favorite. Microbiology is so much better! We culture different strands of bacteria in lab every day.
Finishing up online stuff, then reading Animal, Vegetable, Miracle before tucking in for the night.
