My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Pepper Jelly - Glazed Carrots

As a rule I'm not a huge fan of carrots. Carrot Cake is good! I found this recipe in a Southern Living Magazine and thought, why not. It is really, really, delicious, and the perfect side dish for any meat. I hope you try it.

Pepper Jelly-Glazed Carrots
6 servings
print recipe

1 (32-ounce package) carrots, halved crosswise
1 (10 1/2-ounce) can condensed chicken broth, undiluted
1 (10 1/2-ounce) jar red pepper jelly (see note)
2 tablespoons butter

1. Cut carrot halves lengthwise into quarters. Bring carrots and chicken broth to a boil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and cook, stirring often, 6 to 8 minutes or until carrots are crisp-tender and broth is reduced to 1/4 cup.

2. Stir in peppery jelly and butter, and cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until mixture thickens and carrots are glazed. Transfer to a serving dish, using a slotted spoon. Pour half of pan juices over carrots; discard remaining pan juices.

Cook's Note: Use one (10 1/2-ounce) jar hot jalapeno pepper jelly instead of red pepper jelly.


  1. this sounds wonderful, I make pepper jelly from a recipe a 97 year old still makes, thats what I will use!

  2. What? I love cooked carrots! :)
