    I considered posting this in the deep recesses of the Tavern...it is a secret family recipe after all. But since we're all family here... (Welcome Dahlia)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Green Bean Soup

    1-1 1/2 lbs fresh garden green beans (cut into bite-sized pieces)
    1 lb smoked sausage (sliced into rings)
    1/2 lb fresh carrots (sliced into rings)
    1 large onion (diced)
    2 quarts canned garden tomatoes (diced with juice)
    1 cup sour cream w/ 1 heaping Tbs flour mixed in
    salt
    pepper
    paprika

    In a large stew pot, cover green beans with water and a couple pinches of salt. Bring to boil. While beans are boiling, brown onion in oil or butter in a large skillet. After onion has started to brown, add sausage. Saute until sausage gets some good color to it; turn off burner and set aside. When green beans have boiled for about 10-15 minutes, add carrots and tomatoes. Bring back to boil. When vegetables are slightly tender, add onion/sausage mixture. Simmer for about 10 minutes longer. Then, using the juice from the soup, temper your sour cream mixture and add it to soup. Season to taste. It is ready to serve with good homemade bread! :)

    Mashed potatoes are my favorite and they freeze great.

    When you go through all the trouble to peel and smash, whip up a big batch.

    Spoon into a muffin pan and freeze.

    Pop them out when frozen and separate into baggies and back into the freezer.

    Each baggie is a perfect serving ready to microwave.

    Default Pickled Jalapenos (chiles, pepperocini, banana peppers, etc)

    Pickled Jalapenos

    2 1/2 to 3 pounds of peppers, sliced 1/2" thick (I use latex gloves when doing this)
    5 cups of 5% vinegar
    1 1/4 cup water
    5 tsp kosher salt

    Wash and slice peppers. Pack into hot sterile pint jars. Boil vinegar, water and salt. Pour over peppers, leaving 1/2" headspace. Remove any bubbles from jars. Wipe rims and put lids and rings on jars. Process in a boiling bath 10 minutes.

    Default Refried Bean Soup

    Refried Bean Soup

    An excellent hearty, meatless soup. You won't believe that a soup this easy can taste this good. The Rotel tomatoes (tomatoes with green chilies) provide the perfect seasonings, so don't substitute plain tomatoes for them

    Adapted from Southern Living.

    1 small onion -- chopped
    2 cloves garlic -- minced (or sub. the minced garlic in jar)
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1 can refried beans -- 31 oz
    1 can diced tomatoes -- undrained -- 16 oz
    1 can Rotel Tomatoes -- undrained -- 10 oz
    1 can chicken broth -- 14 1/2 oz
    Garnishes:
    crushed tortilla chips
    shredded cheese (cheddar or monterey jack)
    sour cream

    Cook onion and garlic in oil in a Dutch oven over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until tender. Add beans, both tomatoes and chicken broth, stirring until smooth. Be sure to mash the lumps of refried beans until completely dissolved. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes.

    Ladle soup into individual soup bowls; top with crushed tortilla chips, cheese, and sour cream. Serve immediately.

    Yield: 4 hearty servings.

    I usually add ground beef (from my hamburger rock stash), or chicken (canned is fine), and it is also good without the garnishes, they are not necessary.
