Craft show dates, and new items!

Hi !
It's almost show time!  Our first show is on September 18-19th at the Covered Bridge Festival in Mingo Park, Washington, PA.  For more info and directions check out this link
Covered Bridge Festival
We will be at the Ebenezer Bridge, in the same location, if you have never been at this show, we are located on the right side of the main bridge, in front of the first pavillion.

We have been working hard on some new items this year! We are also bringing back some of our best sellers!
Here are some pics of what we've been doing.

This is a prim doll bag holder.  I made this because I was tired of having all those plastic bags scattered everywhere!  It is based on a pattern by The Olde Country Cupboard.
The second pic is a sign I just finished. I hand painted it, based on a pattern from Maxine Thomas.
The third pic is a basket full of fall treats!

Have a great day!

Homemade Salsa Recipe

Hi!  In just a short time I will have more tomatoes than I know what to do with!  I decided to start making salsa to use some of them up.  I have been making this salsa for a few years now.  I experimented with different combinations and I finally came up with this recipe.  My husband wanted me to can 365 jars of this so he could have a jar a day!!  If you prefer to blanch your tomatoes to take the skins off, you can do that also.  I also learned a tip to squeeze the tomato to get extra water out of the tomato, it makes a thicker salsa.  Enjoy!!

Homemade salsa

7 cups diced plum tomatoes

3/4 cup jalapeno peppers, diced
4 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons cilantro
1 teaspoon reg salt
1 teaspoon hot salt ( I bought this in a restaurant you can just add a bit more salt and crushed red pepper)
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 dash crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cans chilies, chopped
1/2 can tomato paste
3 cups onions (RED AND YELLOW)

1 Add ingredients as listed above. 2 mix completely. 3 I like to can mine. 4 I put them in jelly jars and process according to canning instructions (leave 1/4 inch head room and process for 15 minutes).
