Amish~Pickled Beets

One of my favorite things to do is visit my Amish neighbors. I love to eat at the Mennonite Buffet in Jamesport, Missouri. It has the yummiest food.  I so love their pickled beets.

 I searched my Grandmother's recipe box I found this recipe. I felt like I struck gold.( I was paying $8.oo for a quart.) I love this recipe. I just know you will too!

2 cups sugar
3-1/2 c. white vinegar
1-1/2 c. water
1 t. salt
1 T. cinnamon
1 T. allspice
4 16 oz. cans small whole beets drained
4 1-pint canning jars and lids

Combine sugar, vinegar, water, salt, and spices in a large kettle; bring to a boil over medium heat. Add beets. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes; cool. Pack into hot jars; cover with liquid. Store in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks.

Homemade Peach Tea and The Worlds Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Well Hello September~
Celebrate the Autumn season with these yummy recipes. 

Homemade Peach Tea
8 tea bags 
1 fresh peach
1 cup of sugar 
water and ice

First, you have to bring a pot of water to a boil and then put in your 8  tea bags ~ just like you would when your making a regular pitcher of delicious tea. Pour tea into a gallon container.

 Cut a fresh peach into slices then put the slices in your pot on the stove. Add 1 cup of sugar and cook on medium heat. You need to stir constantly to keep from burning. Cook until you have a syrup consistency. Add the syrup to the tea and finish filling the  gallon container with water. Add ice and oh this is so yummy!
