Watermelon-Lime Jelly

I don’t know where this came from but one day I just started obsessing about making this jelly. A run up to Logan and down Fruit Highway and I started the process.

Day 1:
I found out that I didn’t use a big enough pan.

Watermelon-Lime Jelly

Honestly this is a work in process. This year I ended up with some very great tasting syrup 😐 I think I need to add more sugar to the mixture. Maybe next year I will have better luck.

6 cups of Juiced watermelon
zest and juice from 2 limes
1/2 bunch of mint leaves.
6 cups of sugar
1 pouch of liquid pectin
1 tbls salt

Follow the directions on the package of pectin for the cooking and processing time.

Here is a great site for basic canning processes and some basic recipes Food in Jars.

Ensalada Caprese

It’s the end of summer that means two of the greatest things are happening. Tomatoes are starting to ripen and the temperatures are starting to drop. Both fabulous thing on my book.

I found fresh hand pulled mozzarella cheese at Harmon’s grocery here in Salt Lake. This was some amazingly great cheese. I decided that to complement such am outstanding cheese I needed to make sure that the other ingredients matched the quality.

So I put a call out onto the Twitterverse for heirloom tomatoes. Bought some incredible fresh olive oil, bottled in California of all places. I do not do reveiws well, but this is literally the best olive oil I have tasted since returning from Italy. California Olive Ranch

Caprese Salad

1 lb garden fresh tomatoes
1/2 lb fresh mozzarella cheese. I was always taught in the “old country” to always hand tear the cheese so that you get the strands that Mozzarella is famous.
Several leaves of fresh basil
A drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Sprinkle with sea salt

Farmers Market (a trip north)

I am not going to lie I am to the point that I think that I get a better value from going to a farmers market than planting myself.Β  You are able to get the finished product that is garden fresh with out the frustration and waste of planting your own…

That begin said I am NOT a big fan of a farmers market that has more arts and crafts for sale than food. I have found a couple of markets that I like. Logan’s is fun, and it is well organized so the crafts, produce, and prepared foods are all separate which is really nice. But my favorite one now is the Salt Lake Downtown Alliance market on Tuesday night. They only have food and I can run over right after work and pick up what I need and get home.

Plus you can see lots of other cool sights.


For this farmers market we decided to go up to Logan and hit all of our favorite places. You know Aggie Ice-Cream, Gossners, Cox Honey (we missed that one this time).Β  As a great bonus we were able to spend some time with Uncle Craig and Aunt Binda (who took all of the following photos but left them on my camera to take credit for).Β  It was a really a great day Farmers Market getting some really fun food pancakes with Buttermilk syrup and Ethiopian foods.Β  I gave the kids some money and let them run off together; much to my wife’s chagrin.

Then we were able to spend some real fun time there at Merrill Olsen Park. Someone really enjoyed the stream that runs through the park.

Someone else enjoyed the stream as well. πŸ™‚

Here is the guilty party my brother Craig.
