Christmas colors

I slaved over a hot stove yesterday. I was trying to capture the feel, look and smell of Christmas. I started off with a batch of Jalapeno Jelly. I just love the color! The way the light from the window hit the jars, Fabulous!
Next I brewed up a batch of Spiced Peaches. Just a little Holiday flavoring. Cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, allspice and a little red pepper flakes, Yummy!
What do you do with too many lemons? Why make Lemon Curd of course!
Beautiful yellow curd that just puckers the month and makes your taste buds sing.

Back to the stove again this morning. I have visions of gingerbread and sticky toffee pudding dancing in my head.

Have a Wonderful Christmas Eve, and to all a GOOD NIGHT!

Merry Christmas to everyone, see you next week.
Take care, Brandie
