Good morning, sweet friends. I am sending you two delicious recipes this morning. When I retrieved them from my recipe archive, I thought you might enjoy them also. Both are super easy.
The first recipe is perfect for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. It is a wonderful snack to have out for guests or family to enjoy.
1 (18 -ounce) jar pineapple preserves
1 (18-ounce) jar apricot preserves
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1 ( 5.25 ounce) jar prepared horseradish
1 Tbls. dry mustard
In a large bowl, combine preserves, marmalade, horseradish and dry mustard. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Serve over cream cheese, along with your choice of crackers.
Note: I have substituted peach preserves for the pineapple preserves and it is perfect. I often have trouble locating pineapple preserves.
The second recipe is for New Year’s Day. We all know the old tradition of eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s day to ensure good luck for the coming year. This recipe is great as an accompaniment to almost any meat and can also be served with crackers as an appetizer. The recipe is from my Mississippi cookbook.
1 can black-eyed peas, drained
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup salad oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
Tabasco sauce to taste
Mix all ingredients and marinate for at least 8 hours. Serve with meat or as an appetizer with crackers.
Note: I double the recipe. It is always is a hit with men.
Enjoy the recipes.
Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year!
