Jalapeno Focaccia
Keeping my promise, I am sharing with you Jalapeno Focaccia recipe today. Am I the only one who considers making bread at home a success story? For a long time, just the simple idea of baking would send me into a tizzy. It’s true!! It’s not that I create recipes so I can do any kind of food. Baking good, homemade, soft and moist bread is an achievement at all level. I need to test recipes after recipes to reach there.

Today’s recipe was a homemade success story at many levels. I used homemade pickled Jalapenos and home grown (kept frozen) rosemary. My husband won’t let me buy an olive press or otherwise I would have used homemade olive oil as well. Lol!!

Jalapeno Focaccia
I shared Jalapeno Pickle recipe last year and I must say pickled and canned Jalapenos comes in handy whenever I need’em. Like today, for focaccia. Basic bread recipe is the same, Focaccia perfumed with olive oil and rosemary and slightly charred pickled jalapenos on top really change the dimensions of Focaccia Slice. You don’t even need a spread or dipping sauce for this bread, just slice and serve. Scrumptious!!
