Yummy Monkey butter

The name of this butter is odd, but it is delicious. Just listen as I taste it.

Someone uses a great sense of humor in naming these products.

I hope you stop by Wagners in Black Creek and select something for yourself.

BTW, the Monkey Butter cost me $5.25 for 19 oz.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Tasting red pepper jelly

Last Thursday I bought another assortment of jellies at Wagner’s in Black Creek, Wisconsin. Even though hot peppers aren’t my usual selection, I thought I’d give this red pepper jelly a try. Here’s my first taste.

There isn’t any fruit in this jelly. The ingredients are sugar, water, jalapeno, vinegar, pectin, red and yellow food color, and citric acid.

The first thing I tasted was the sweetness and second came the red pepper. It tasted good, but was a bit more pepper than I’m used to. I’m sure anyone who likes jalapeno peppers would love this on their toast.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

A review from 3 grandchildren

We went grocery shopping today. I allowed my grandchildren to choose yogurt flavors they liked.

Everyone was curious about the Skittle-flavor, so we bought one to give it a taste test. Here’s what my three grandchildren said.

It was three thumbs down, but the yogurt was finished so not wasted.

More from the garden

Homegrown tomatoes, m-m good.

If you haven’t grown your own, you’ll just have to go to a farmer’s market or a roadside stand and get some yummy tomatoes. It may be a couple of weeks before the real harvest comes in, but they are well worth the wait.

I bought my plants with a couple of blossoms on, so they had a head start. I won’t be canning any. I just like to munch them fresh off the vine.

A garden can be in a flowerpot so maybe next season you’ll grow your own tomato plant. Harvesting from there is easy.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

What’s growing?

My little garden has a couple of big plants.

Zucchini fried in a bit of butter was just right for supper.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.
