I just made this recipe up while making my Christmas gift baskets... I had actually never made salsa before and this was truly a hit. I brought this to a Christmas party and heard from quite a few that it was the best salsa they have ever had.... I breathed on my fingernails and brushed them against my shoulder... :) I do say so myself- this is dang good salsa.
From The Southern Living Cookbook. A very simple jelly using bottled grape juice. Goes together in no time, so it's perfect for last minute gift ideas or beginning jelly makers. Uses hot water bath canning.
I have made several different recipes for hot pepper jelly and decided that I had tweaked them all to the point of newness. Here is my interpretation of a good, hot jelly that works well as a glaze on chicken or pork or on top of a brie or over some cream cheese. Heck I have even had it on celery with peanut butter but that's a whole other story. I use a variety of colored peppers for really pretty jelly, yellow, red green, etc. I think habenaros give the best flavor and heat. My instructions are kind of long but I thought the details of canning might be helpful to someone. Wear rubber gloves whenever handling hot peppers or you'll be sorry. Makes a great addition to a gift basket. Hope you enjoy it.
Talk about a face mask! This will melt your face off! Dare you try I hope you have a stomach of steel. My husband has been asking for a very hot jelly. My other jelly recipes are not hot enough for him. He asked for it and he got it. He loves it. I don't know who else would try it. Maybe Mean Chef? I don't know it's really really hot. The zucchini is in there because of the abundance in the garden and it makes a great filler. Now you can use this as a ingredient in BBQ sauces or glazes for chicken or pork. Spread it on cream cheese and serve with crackers. Add a touch to a salad dressing for a kick. It's really endless just use it as a seasoning. A good gift for those that can handle it!
I do recommend wearing gloves. This is sweet & spicy so beware. This is great served over cream cheese.Try adding it to your favorite barbecue sauce for a little extra kick. Spread it on your sandwiches. I've added it to salsas.
You can also make this with jalapenos and green bell pepper to get a milder jelly.As in the picture.
Some recipes using the jelly!
This recipe comes from a delightful book "Christmas Gifts of Good Taste." Originally posted to fill a request, I made this last year for the holidays and it was a big hit. This makes just a little over 4 cups of spread (kind of like a jelly sauce). Try this poured over cream cheese for a fast appetizer. Once opened, use up quickly - in about 1-2 weeks.
A cerain "someone" (who is a jelly & jam expert!) has been after me to post this recipe for quite some time. After finding it in Saveur Magazine, we spent a morning making up a double batch. It was fun and the jam turned out to be "interesting". If you try it, let us know what you think.
After spending too much money on store bought sugar free jams, I was given this recipe by a friend. It tastes better than most you find in the store, and is much cheaper. I use granular splenda, and don't measure it, I just add until it tastes sweet enough.
I'm posting this recipe to help myself and others avoid the frustration of searching through all my cookbooks and magazines every September! It's not a recipe you can find in the pectin inserts. Tried and true- another Canadian Living gem. Prep time includes overnight drip.
This recipe is a chunky type jam. I will enhance a variety of dishes, and makes a wonderful snack on top of cream cheese, served with crackers. From my Texas Home Cooking cookbook, by the Jamisons'. Prep time is an estimate.
