I need to write two stories and I have two more interviews scheduled, but I must put everything on hold to tell you about a crisis.
I do not have enough peppers in my garden to make hot pepper jelly.
I need the long, skinny, red cayenne peppers. These are the only ones I use, and I can't see messing with success.
I have scoured the grocery stores and outdoor markets to no avail. There are lots of peppers, but not the specific kind I need.
The newsroom is in an uproar over this issue.
I supply hot pepper jelly for our office luncheons. We eat the jelly with cream cheese on crackers.
I'm not one to brag, but people have asked me to sell my jelly.
I decline - it's too expensive to make and I could not get a decent price. Instead, I give it away for birthday and Christmas gifts.
