Sweet Potato Skins THM-E

This post was created in partnership with Ninja and I received a complimentary product but all opinions in this post are my own.

Some days I forget that healthy carbs are so important in our diet, too. Today, I was in my basement and saw three bushels of sweet potatoes that we harvested from our garden last fall. My husband had wrapped each sweet potato individually in newspaper and packed them in crates. They are still as nice as when we first harvested them. I decided to try something different with them. Roasted Potato Skins were a former treat for our family and sweet potatoes worked wonderful for a healthy option. They were a hit with our family and I hope you will enjoy them, too. The Air-Fry Crisping with the Ninja® Foodi™ Pressure Cooker created a caramelizing crispness to these sweet potatoes.

Refrigerator Pickled Jalapenos THM-FP

Cleaning out the remains of my garden this fall, I had a small bucket of Jalapenos to use up. Maybe I was being lazy but I didn’t want to take the time to can them. This recipe saved my day. It can be made in a very short time and best of all, they are so delicious.  The Jalapenos are not super hot like you would imagine but have a mild sweet flavor.   I may even have to buy some Jalapenos this winter to replenish our supply!


Refrigerator Pickled Jalapenos 

  • 3/4 cup hot tap water
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons mineral salt
  • 2 tablespoons THM Gentle Sweet
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3/4 teaspoon oregano
  • sliced jalapenos to fill a quart jar
  • additional water

Wash and slice Jalapenos, discarding the tops and stems. Pack into a quart jar. Fill the quart jar with water and shake to loosen some seeds. Pour the out the water and discard. Combine 3/4 cup water, vinegar, salt, and Gentle Sweet together. Stir until salt and Gentle Sweet are dissolved. Place garlic cloves and oregano on top of the jalapenos. Pour brine in to fill the jar. Add lid and ring. Store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks before using if you can wait that long.

These are so tasty on wraps, burgers, omelets, and just about anything. They have a sweet mild flavor and we just love them.

Amish Macaroni Potato Salad THM-S

Amish Macaroni Potato salad has always been a favorite with our family and for carry-in dish dinners. I have often wished for a healthier version (without potatoes) and after numerous attempts  I have come up with this recipe using spaghetti squash. Our family loves it and the serving dish comes back to the kitchen completely empty.  Most people are surprised what is used to replace the potatoes but comment on how tasty it really is.

Amish Macaroni Potato Salad  THM-S

  • 1 box  Dreamfield Elbows 
  • 4 cups cooked spaghetti squash
  • 2 cups finely diced celery
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 6 hard boiled eggs, chopped

Dressing:

Cook pasta following instructions on box. Drain and rinse well. Chop spaghetti squash so the strands are no longer than 3/4 inch. Toss together elbows, spaghetti squash, celery, carrots, onion, and eggs. Combine mayo, salt, apple cider vinegar, mustard, Gentle Sweet, and garlic powder together. Pour over salad and stir lightly. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours for flavors to combine. 12-14 servings.

**I often cook the spaghetti squash in the microwave, each half for 8 minutes.

This is my favorite chopper when I am canning. The children can help use it since the knives are covered by the lid.
