Cranberry Jalapeno Jam

This simple cranberry jalapeno pepper jam is a sweet and spicy jam recipe that's flavorful with just a touch of  heat. 
Our temperature dropped pretty quickly last week so our first real frost came early this year. We still had a few things in our Fall garden, so we needed to get a them picked. It was mostly our Honeynut  Squash and a variety of peppers. 

The squash matured to size, but it hadn't changed to it's deep honey - orange color quite yet. Thankfully the squash will continue to ripen off the vine which allowed us to bring them inside.

Instant Pot Milk & Honey Corn on the Cob

This sweet and buttery milk and honey corn on the cob is cooked quickly and easily in the Instant Pot. 🌽🍯
Nothing says summer like fresh, sweet corn on the cob. It's always so exciting when the first crop of corn is ready to harvest from our garden, because it means I can make our favorite corn recipe. Milk & Honey Corn on the Cob is made with fresh corn that is simmered in a creamy milk bath, seasoned with butter, creole seasoning and sweetened with a touch of honey. 

Using this method yields a juicy, slightly sweet corn on the cob with a bit of a kick. You can simmer the corn on the stove top or cook it in the Instant Pot which is my favorite method. Using the Instant pot is not only quick, but cooks the corn perfectly. The best part is that it's totally hands off! Just add all of the ingredients to the Instant Pot and that's it. The pressure cooker does all of the work.
