Hog sightings have increased. Tom has seen several and I saw 12 this morning on the property at the corner of CR 1117 and 1100. Can you take them and have them butchered locally?
I would like to apologize to the Stone family. Mr. Leon Stone Let me know that his father had passed away last year. So if I happen to put a family member in the paper for their birthday, please let me know.
I want to thank Donnie Kinecut of Birthright for the green tomato relish recipe that she gave me. So Jo Beth here are two recipes:
Tomato Relish Recipe I
1 gallon of chopped green tomatoes
2 cups of chopped onions
Hot peppers to taste
1 pint vinegar
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup salt
Bell pepper or red pepper to add some color.
Simmer until tomatoes change colors. Place in hot jars and place in cold water bath until sealed, or place in cooker with 10 pounds of pressure for 10 minutes.
Tomato Relish Recipe II
1 gallon chopped green tomatoes
1 quart of chopped white onions
1/2 pint of hot green peppers
1/4 cup salt
2 1/2 cup sugar
1 quart of vinegar
Cook ingredients, thend and then place in jars and seal. I have heard of a new way to seal your pickle relish. After you put the relish, pickles, etc., in the jars, turn them upside down and they will seal.
