Sweet Jalapenos or Sweet Hot Pickles


You also need a big gallon glass jar for either recipe.,
This same recipe is used for both of these. It is prepared the same way for both.


In a piece of cheese cloth put the spices and tie into a little bundle. Add the spices to the liquids and bring to a simmer.


2 tsp. pickling spice
3 Cups sugar
3/4 Cup water
3/4 Cup 

Simmer for 30 minutes.


Sweet Hot Pickles


48 Oz jar dill pickles sliced
20 or 30 serrento peppers...washed, de-stemed and sliced

Rinse all the brine from the pickles and if they aren't sliced... slice them.
Put 1/3 of the pickles in the glass jar, add 1/3 of the peppers, continue until all the pickles and peppers are in the jar.
Place the jar in the sink (just a precaution), add a big metal spoon to the jar and pour the mixture over the pickles.
Keep in the refrigerator and stir every day or so. Ready to eat in 10 days.

Sweet Jalapenos

Use a big can of sliced Jalapenos. (Then kind sold at Sam's Club or Costco). Drain and rinse the peppers so all the vinegar brine that they are packed in is washed away. Place the peppers in the big glass jar.
Add the mixture to the peppers. (Don't forget the sink and the spoon.) That is all.... Place the jar in the 
refrigerator and stir every couple of days.
  They are ready in 10 days but the longer you have them the better 
they taste. So be sure to make another batch before the first one is gone.
  We eat these with everything.

Have you ever tried a Sunchoke?
They're also known as Jerusalem Artichokes.
They look like bunches of arthritic looking knobs.
You'll find them during the fall season.

For a simple fall side-dish, pair thin-cut slices
of it with apples & pancetta (sometimes
called Italian bacon).  Add some butter/margarine,
cinnamon, salt & pepper with a bit of cream.
Sounds delicious, doesn't it?

TIPS ...

  • Do sunchokes need to be peeled? No, and a good thing
    since all the knobs would make that difficult indeed!
  • Do sunchokes need to be washed? Yes, carefully.
    Between the knobs are pockets of collected earth.
    Just break off the knobs to wash.
  • Must sunchokes be cooked? No, you can eat them raw,
    either grated or in chunks like a carrot.

    Hands-on time: 10 minutes
    Time to table: 25 - 30 minutes
    Serves 4

    2 thin slices pancetta, diced small
    1 T. butter
    1/2 lb. sunchokes, trimmed & carefully washed,
    sliced very thin
    1 - 2 apples, peeled, quartered & sliced thin
    Dash cinnamon
    1 T. cream
    Salt & pepper to taste

    Cook the pancetta until slightly crispy in a skillet,
    then set aside. Melt the butter in the same skillet.
    Add the sunchokes & let cook slowly til quite
    soft (my estimate is about 15 min.), stirring
    often. Add the apple & cook til softened. Stir
    in cinnamon, cream & cooked pancetta, stir
    briefly until cream thickens slightly.

Chief Justice Williams' Harvest Potatoes

Patata Raccolta

Rhode Island Chief Justice Frank William
shares one of his favorite recipes with us.

This simple dish takes only minutes to prepare,
& its hearty ingredients will soothe your soul
on a cold winter's night. 

3-4 nice size russet or other good baking potatoes
1 1/2 T unsalted butter
2 cups half & half
1 cup heavy cream
1 cube chicken bouillon
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried sage
1 3/4 cups parmesan cheese, grated
salt to taste
ground pepper to taste
1 3/4 tsps mixed herbs
(rosemary, thyme, lavender, parsley)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a
9 x 12 x 2" baking dish with 1/2 T butter.

In a large pot heat the half & half, heavy cream,
bouillon cube, garlic powder, onion powder & sage.
Simmer until the bouillon cube is completely dissolved.

Cut the potatoes into paper-thin slices. Layer
one third of the slices, overlapping one another
in the prepared pan.

Sprinkle with half the Parmesan cheese,
salt & pepper. Repeat with another third of
the potatoes and the remaining cheese,
salt & pepper. Then finish with a layer of potatoes.

Pour the remaining cream mixture over the
potatoes until it just reaches the top.

Dot with the remaining butter. Bake for
one hour & 30 minutes or until the potatoes
can be easily pierced with a fork.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle with
the chopped herbs. Serve immediately.

Serves 6
