Killer good RIBS……

I was busy yesterday…but you would never know by looking at our dinner.    I took a rack of ribs out of the freezer….seasoned both sides with garlic salt and season salt.  I then put them in a large disposable foil container and tightly put foil on the top.  You need it really tight so no steam escapes.  I put this in a low oven 225 degrees and cooked it for about 5 hours.  Remember…these were frozen.    I checked the ribs by putting a fork between the bones and when they were tender…I took it out of the oven.   I then put them under my broiler…getting color on both sides..then I brushed Habanero Jelly on both sides and returned it to the broiler…on both sides.  I’m talking yummmmmmy here!!!  Add a salad and a baked sweet potato and you will be in Heaven!

Jelly on the “BARBIE”

It’s spring ! And Bar-B-Q weather is here! Try a little of Hot Mama’s Jelly on your Steak, Chicken, Fish, Pork. Here is an idea we love at our house. I use Lawry’s garlic salt and Lawry’s season salt ..a little on each side of my meat. I cook one side, then turn it over…put 1/2 teaspoon on the top and let it finish cooking. Sometimes I even turn it again and “Jelly” up the other side too. You can use any any flavor of jelly when cooking like this. Although…..Pineapple on pork chops or pork loin is “WONDERFUL”.

My Grandpa, Eugene Leavitt was born in 1893…..January 21. That would make him 118 years old today.  He died when he was 97.  And was still riding a horse at 93.  So ….why am I being all “Grandpa” today?????  Besides it being his birthday,  He was the one who first introduced me to hot peppers.  Grandpa was a farmer/cowboy and lived in St. George Utah most of his life.  I grew up in Southern California, and we would travel to Utah every summer and spend 3 to 4 weeks for our vacation.   My grandpa’s garden was huge…. Grandma bottled all their fruit and vegetables that they used throughout the year, so a big garden was necessary.  I remember eating the evening meal.  It would consist of her home made bread,  jelly, honey, and fresh tomatoes and peppers..and that was about it.  Oh…kool-aid too.  I think Grandpa and Grandma would be surprised at the amount of peppers available to us today in the supermarket.  I would love to introduce them to the Habanero… one of my favorite peppers.  I miss you Grandma and Grandpa.

Hot Mama’s Favorites

So many have been asking what Hot Mama’s favorite flavor is.  So, Here it is:

#1    Habanero

#2    Mango Habanero    and     Apricot Habanero  are tied

#3    Pineapple Habanero   and Peach Habanero  tied

#4    Cranberry Habanero   and Pomegranate Habanero

and in Last place…..sorry you Jalapeno lovers…but Jalapeno is last in my book.   There just isn’t enough great flavor like the Habanero pepper puts out.   I’m not saying it isn’t good,  … it just is last on my list.

But you really must try them all to form your own opinion.

BUT NOW I MUST ADD…….IT DEPENDS  ON WHAT I’M MAKING AS TO THE FLAVOR I USE.   So does that blow my “favorites in order” out of the water?????
