From Mema…”I cleaned up a lot of messes before he got this perfected, but I guess it was worth it. I still like pickled okra.
Cut tips off okra and wash
Have jars clean - place in jar:
1 tsp. Dill seed
1 tsp. salt
1 clove pealed garlic
1 slice onion
1 hot pepper
Boil water - cook okra 1 1/2 minutes
Place in jars to top
Pour boiling vinegar and water solution (1-cup water to 1-cup vinegar) over okra
Seal with "hot" lids.
¼ cup of salt
¼ cup of ground pepper
2 tbs. garlic powder
1 tbs. cayenne pepper
1 tbs. ground cumin
1 tbs. dry mustard
Rub whole brisket, including sides and fat.
Try to keep brisket at 225 to 250 degrees
Put on grill – unwrapped, fat side up. After 5 hours, wrap in aluminum foil. Overall, do about 1 hour per pound. You can always look in cookbook for a 200-250 formula. When you take brisket off grill, don’t automatically start cutting. Let it rest for 10-20 minutes, and then the meat will be ready to cut.
Bloody Mary Mix
1 14-oz. can tomato juice
3 cans beef bouillon soup
10-oz. lemon juice
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
15 dashes celery salt
12-20 dashes tobasco sauce
7 dashes onion salt
10 dashes All-season salt
10 dashes lemon-pepper seasoning
10 dashes dill seed
Mix in large container. If desired, add Vodka to taste.
Southern Comfort Punch
This tasty concoction has kept many a person warm on a cold night. For those who abstain, substitute apple cider for the Southern Comfort.
750 ml Southern Comfort® 6 oz Lemon Juice
6 oz Frozen Lemonade Concentrate
6 oz Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate
3 Liters of 7-UP® or Sprite®
Bring the two concentrates to room temperature. Mix together with lemon juice and add to punch bowl. Stir in Southern Comfort. Add soda and garnish with maraschino cherries.
I like to freeze some pre-made orange juice into which I have added the maraschino cherries. You can float this on top of your punch. It looks great and will keep your punch cooler, longer. For larger parties you can make a mixture of the lemon juice and two concentrates ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator until you need to make another batch! Enjoy!
"This is a lemony spiced tea mix with cinnamon and clove that makes great gifts during the holidays, or any time!"
