These new jams and jellies are perfect for adding some spice to your life.
The Season has come to an end and I am canning up the last of our garden's bounty this summer.
Savory jams—made from unexpected produce like hot peppers—are quickly growing in popularity.
Pepper jam is most commonly known as one of the tastiest, and easiest, appetizers you can serve; just spoon over brie or cream cheese, insert a spreader knife, place crackers on the side and walk away…your guests help themselves. Easy!
What’s not as commonly known is what a terrific glaze pepper jam is on pork, turkey, ham, salmon, beef, lamb, wild game…just to name a few. It’s also a flavorful addition to sandwiches, salads, and as a “normal” jam, spread on toast, bagels, and English muffins.
In response to numerous requests for a much spicier pepper jam, I have created a NEW FLAVOR, Hell Fire.
The perfect pepper jam for spicy-lovers. A bold flavor with a satisfying after-taste; but it won’t take your head off! This unique, savory jam delivers tasty layers of robust, smoky flavor from three kinds of peppers, spices and bits of real mango. It adds a nice kick of heat to appetizers, chicken, sauces or stir fry. Honestly try it! You won’t be disappointed.
Or impress your friends with a delicious cream cheese, spicy cowboy candy, and cracker spread.
USING HOT PEPPER JELLY
Here are some ideas to get you started – but remember don’t limit yourself!
- Use as an appetizer with cheese and crackers (use cream cheese, goat cheese, brie, etc). - Serve with chicken, turkey, pork or duck. - Use as a spread on ham, turkey or left over roast meat sandwiches. - Mix with a little honey and use as a glaze when making a roast. - Mix into ground meat when making hamburgers or meatballs. - Use it in dressings or marinades to add a little heat. - Use in sweet and sour sauces.
If you like sweet and savory jellies, you may also want to check out our bacon or onion Jam. It’s less sweet than this Hot Pepper Jelly, but it is mighty fine on goat cheese and crackers.
