Exchange with Just Passin Thru in Tahiti

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Gene and I were chatting one day and decided to do an exchange. He wanted some hard to get sausage casings and I wanted some vanilla. After much debate (on my side) as to which casings to get him we finally settled on the casings and I also sent him some of my home roasted coffee and Paul asked me to send Gene some of his rub.


Gene was extremely generous and sent me some awesome goodies that we are planning on using real soon.


Here is the full package all grouped together

I'm really glad you liked the package and it was fun doing an exchange with you, now don't forget the Q-view of how you used them.




Friends, the vinegar is super simple to make;


the skin/pealing of one pineapple or two mangoes or two papayas


1/4 cup white sugar


place in a quart jar or a little bigger and fill with water


place a cloth over the top and hold with a rubber band


in three weeks you will have vinegar, the longer you wait the stronger it will be


I have made the pineapple vinegar this way and it's awesome!


Granted these fruits are probably not readily available in most of the States, but maybe you can find them in the summertime, ...I would bet this recipe would work with apples or pears, probably any fruit you could think of.

Mrs Scar is already planning on some great vinnegrette's with them. She is always making up some new dressing. Her latest one is fresh orange juice that turns out pretty tasty. Cant wait to see what she does with these.
