    acerast's Note:

    This is a deceptive cheese ball! On the outside it appears to be a fluffy white snow ball - but on the inside is a lovely combination of creamy cheese, sweet-but-spicy hot pepper peach preserves, pungent onion and firey jalapeno. The recipe is a staple on New Years Eve at my friend Annette G's house and comes from Robert Rothchild Farm gourmet foods. They make a mean Hot Pepper Peach Preserves! Estimated time includes chilling time.

      Really lovely recipe! I like to make a little appy for DH and I to munch on during the Sunday football game watching and a few weeks back I made up a store-bought cheeseball mix that tasted like this recipe sounded it would. I added a touch too much jelly so instead of a cheeseball, I put it into a ceramic dish and baked it until bubbly- just delish! Also, used some homemade pineapple jalapeno jelly instead of peach. Yum!

      Hi acerast! I just got done making this,came up to post the recipe and found you already had!This cheeseball will make you the hit of the party! I've been making it for about 5 years now and everyone goes crazy over it! If you can't find the Hot Pepper Peach preserves in your gourmet food store, you can order it from One jar will make 3 cheeseballs. And BTW, you can also make two cheese logs instead of one big ball as I usually do - more shredded cheese with each bite! Use regular cream cheese, not reduced or fat just turns into a mess! If you are a fan of these flavors, you will think you had died and gone to heaven! Enjoy!
