I have wanted to learn to can and took the opportunity to purchase jars in various sizes for Summer Fest. Since that recipe I haven’t canned , but I have used the jars.
For margaritas. It’s an addiction what can I say?
In late May I posted a margarita recipe for pineapple/cucumber which was adapted from my favorite agua fresca. This week I craved a crisp pineapple flavor dotted with a speck of lime.
Tequila Blanco is ideal for summer margaritas. A Blanco has a clean taste giving your fresh fruit juice center stage.
Fresh pineapple juice is preferred for this margarita. I know I continue to stress the use of fresh juice, but it really makes all the difference. In choosing a fresh pineapple look for brightly colored, deep green leaves.
Avoid any with bruises, soft spots or mold. Choose a pineapple with some weight for it’s size. I have found pre cut pineapple at my local grocery store. This can save you time without the hassle of coring the pineapple yourself.
