The secret to this one is that you put a tablespoon of reserved bacon drippings into the water prior to boiling potatoes, the bacon flavored potato salad is a real crowd pleaser.

Juicy pork tenderloin recipe, muy bueno!

The pork tenderloin with mushroom sauce is a keeper, follow the recipe and you can't go wrong. We brined the tenderloin in a solution that was 2 qts. of cold water, 1/4 cup of sugar, and 1/4 cup of salt for 1 1/2 hours, rinsed it off and marinated it in Yoshida's overnight. One caveat, if the tender...

I have had batches last 3 months refrigerated no problem, I think they would last much longer though especially if you canned them for storage....They do look like a Dr. Jekyl lab experiment in the fridge though. :mrgreen:

Spicy Pickled Eggs...caviar from Texas.

Don't let the title fool you, these pickled eggs taste nothing like pickles, the "pickle" is in reference to the brine, if you like hard boiled eggs, and spicy foods, you will probably like these. I spent too much of my childhood in Texas Icehouse's (Beer joints) and it wasn't unusual to see a jar ...
