What other foods do you make at home? (Way off topic, and not political!)

Saw the thread on Vanilla Extract and was curious what else us eggheads make food wise at home, here is my list: (Please don't hijack the thread with Trolling, politics, or other crap).

yogurt
Vanilla Extract
Granola
Ice Cream
Smoked Cheese
Coffee Creamer
and other things I can't remember

We can (process) the following:
 - plums
 - Applesauce
 - apples
 - Pears

    Jellies and jams - Blackberry, strawberry, peach and apple butter. Buttermilk biscuits are my signature item. I also have 5 blueberry bushes in the back, so lots of items with blueberries. Also make homemade pasta...

    Beer (mostly an economic thing), wine (really an economic thing), raspberry jam (the simplest of all jams even an idiot like me gets great results), blueberry jam or syrup (because it takes some thought so we get whatever is in the jars). 

    Asian (Taiwanese style) dumplings, which if the wrappers don't cooperate soon become pot stickers or jiaozi. 

    Rubs - have some commercial standbys, but prefer to make up my own. Just getting into sauces.

    So many things I've loved to cook have been moved to my Eggs (pizzas, wokking, even chili!) but I still use my kitchen for making homemade pasta.  
    Also love making dishes with roasted Hatch green chile, of which I have a bushel in my freezer.

    NONE !  I prefer to call them "First Nations".  You people insult them by calling them Americans.  Do you know nothing?

    The list of "other" foods we do at home is quite LONG living in what I consider to be food mecca. However, boils are a staple here as evidenced by the following picture:

    Happiness is a literal BOATLOAD of crawfish on a beautiful Good Friday afternoon.

    One other food that is a staple here that I have yet to conquer is Jambalaya. I have a VERY LARGE cast iron pot to make it in and I have the burner, I just need to get out there and make it happen.

    Every time my elbow bends my mouth flies open.

    350 quarts of tomato sauce over Labor Day

    Cured and smoked kielbasi

    Infused vodkas

    Just started some vanilla extract based on what I learned here

    Rumtopf - a German rum pot using various fruits, sugar and rum to make a delicious drink/dessert/treat/topping..  Tradiditionally takes 6 months of seeping fruit and sugar in rum, but you can start a 'turbo' Rumtopf now and have it ready in time for Christmas.

    SS,

    We learned about adding tonic or champagne to the lemoncello when we were in Italy last month.  By adding tonic or champagne to the lemoncello, the bubbles really makes it refreshing.

    I go through phases of trying (experimenting) different things. VI stir fry was the first time I got a real grip on wok cooking and flavors. Thank you VI. I just did steamed fish. I always had a notion that it would be so bland but I'm here to tell you that it was some of the best fish I have had. I am now on a quest for a steamer basket. Chutneys are my current interest. Last week I made tomato chutney. Yum! Grilled chicken breast, spread herb goat cheese and a little chutney over the top. Out standing. This week I made cranberry chutney for the holidays and now I'm 2 for 2.

    You've been a busy girl !  Glad you liked the stir fry.  There are so many great things to cook that way.
