Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy Career?
When I heard “Navy,” I:
Was proud and encouraged it
Through this Navy experience, I now believe:
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.
Wash figs and cut off stems. Layer figs in a container, cover with a layer of sugar - repeat layers. Cover and place container in refrigerator overnight while it creates its own syrup. Next day, place mixture in a pot and cook for about 30 minutes. Put in sterilized jars and seal. (You can also add flavored Jello. I added strawberry Jello to a batch and it was wonderful).
Wash, pare, and halve the cucumbers length wise; remove seeds. Cut each half through center, crosswise, then cut each quarter into lengthwise pieces of desired thickness. Let stand 12 hours, or overnight, in a brine made of the salt and water. Drain cucumbers thoroughly. Bring vinegar, sugar, and spices (tied in a spice bag) to boiling in a large kettle; add cucumbers. Cook gently until pieces begin to look transparent but are still crisp. Fill hot sterilized jars with pickles, then pour the hot syrup over them, leaving headspace
One cup of self rising cornmeal One half cup of self rising flour One teaspoon of sugar One finely chopped small onion One cup of milk
Mix all the ingredients together.
Heat in a small heavy sauce pan three inches of Wesson oil until it is hot Fill a coffee mug with cold water
Take a soup spoon, wet it in your coffee mug of cold water, dip it in your mixture so you have about enough mixture to cover about one third of the spoon lengthwise.
Carefully let it slide into hot oil. If your oil is the correct temperature, there will be lots of bubbles around the hush puppy. If you take a long handled metal slotted spoon and touch the just dropped hush puppy which will sink to bottom of the pan, it should rise to the surface easily.
If the oil isn't hot enough, just keep trying. When the oil is the proper temperature, the dropped mixture will bob to the top of oil with very little encouragement. Turn the hush puppies until they are golden brown and place them on a platter with paper towels.
It takes a little practice, but it isn't that difficult. They are best done in small batches. You're working with very hot oil so be very careful and keep kids away from the cooking. Don't be surprised if for the first few minutes, the hush puppies keep disappearing. The recipe makes enough for a huge crowd, probably four dozen or more hush puppies. It does make something of a mess, but the good hush puppies are worth it.
BANANA JAM Ingredients •1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about one medium lime) •3 1/2 cups diced very ripe bananas •1 1/2 cups sugar ...•1/2 cup water •1 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon Squeeze the lime juice into a bowl and chop the bananas into it in little chunks. measure the sugar and water into a pot, and stir to dissolve sugar as you bring syrup to a boil. Once it’s just starting to boil, add banana mixture and boil over low heat for about 30 minutes or until thick. Keep stirring it all the time to stop it from sticking to the sides, and to kind of mash up the banana as you go. add the cinnamon to the mixture, adding less or more depending on how much you want . The mixture will slowly start to cook down over time, and will eventually turn into a thick gooey kind of paste, which will get even gooier after it cools down. The jam is done when a spoon scraped across bottom of pan leaves a track that closes slowly. I put it in mason jars and just stick it in the fridge after its cool im not sure about it being shelf stable if its water bath canned
