Jerk Sauce

I tried the second one and it was okay, but perhaps the All spice had been on the shelf a bit too long.  I cut the sugar to just about a quarter cup and that was fine.  I wish I had used the molasses.  Also, I cut the number of peppers to three and that was more than enough, in fact, it may be a bit too hot for most eaters.  One pepper might have been smart to start.

red cabbage in chili

I ground up some cooked red cabbage with the meat grinder and it came out resembling the texture of ground beef.  What a cool kind of trick.
I made a chili using the rather bland kidney bean dish I had already made and adding the cabbage, some cayenne powder, a fresh cayenne pepper, some chili powder, paprika and black pepper.  It ende up very tasty.  Oh, I cooked it in that fancy barbecue sauce from around the Buffalo area.

Elizabeth made this one today.

We had it over spaghetti squash and it was very delicious. 
She did not include wine.
