I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Spicy Peach Salsa

Yep, this is a hot one!! You can tame it though with less hot pepper flakes and cayenne. Just a small batch...1 pint and 2 jam jars. Serve with tortilla chips or your next fish dinner. Or even on a burger!

1  1/2 tbsps fresh cilantro
1  1/2 cups fresh tomato, peeled and diced 
3/4 cup onion, diced
2  1/2 cups peaches, diced
1 tbsp lime juice
3/4 cup green pepper, diced
2 tsps hot pepper flakes
1/4 cup vinegar
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp cayenne
2 tsps honey

Mix peaches with lime juice. I had 1 white flesh peach in the mix. 

I had a handful of cherry tomatoes. Obviously I didn't peel those, but peel the large tomatoes. Toss with the peaches and add the rest of the ingredients.

Bring to a boil over medium heat then simmer for 5-6 minutes.

Fill sterilized jars and process in a hot water bath.
To sterilize I boil a kettle of water and pour into jars which have a piece of cutlery in them to keep the jars from cracking. Pour out the boiling water onto the lids and rings, then fill jars and seal. Place jars in large pot, fill hot water to cover jars. Bring to a boil and time off 20 minutes.

Remove from water and check that seals are good after 24 hours.
