MORE Foodie Fixes

These recipes and ideas are for those of us who are in the middle of cooking and realize we are out of a product we need.  Also for those who live out in the country and too far to make a quicky run to the store, for those stuck in the house for various reasons, and for ALL of us who just love saving money!!!!


COCKTAIL SAUCE
1/2 C catsup                     can also use part chili sauce
1 Tbsp. horseradish
1 tsp. lemon juice
5 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. tabasco (optional)

Mix together and chill.  I make our cocktail sauce all the time. 
*I always have a jar of ground horseradish in the frig for various uses, but I also have horseradish powder on hand.


LAWRY'S SEASONED SALT
2 Tbsp. salt
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cornstarch
Make up a lot and store in a spice container or jar.


SUPER EASY BBQ SAUCE
1 C grape jelly
1 C catsup
Mix together and serve over meat.


HOMEMADE CATSUP
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. vinegar
very small dash of cinnamon

Pour tomato sauce into a small saucepan and boil - till it starts to thicken.  Add sugar, cinnamon and vinegar.  Simmer 3 -4 minutes longer.  Refrigerate.
**Go easy on cinnamon - it's real easy to get too much in recipe.


ARBY'S HORSEY SAUCE
Mayo
Horseradish

Mix to your taste preference.  Great with beef.


EASY PEACH JAM
2 C peaches
2 Tbsp. water
2 C sugar
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
Peel and slice peaches.  Put into a saucepan with water and cook peaches down to pulp and juices.  Add sugar and cornstarch and boil till thickened.  Refrigerate or freeze.
This is a great way to use up fruit that may be past it's prime.


I hope this gives you a few ideas and helps save a grocery trip and a dollar or two!  Small steps on the frugal front can add up in the long run.  Take care of your pennies and they will take care of you.
HAPPY COOKING!

    1. I have only tried it once. It was fine. We used it on fried potatoes.
      Be CAREFUL with cinnamon. Actually I can't remember if I put it in mine or not. I don't like regular food tasting like dessert!

      Have a good one.
