Miss Annie,My husband is still raving about this cornbread,he has given this recipe to everybody he can think of,He gardens every year,and so he makes his own jalapeno jelly and has done so for years.He says to give you 10 stars,but of course I can only give 5,but be aware he wants you to have 10 :) Thanks,Darlene
These were simple to make and were a huge hit with chili. Next time, I'll double the amount of cayanne pepper to give the muffins a kick, or I'll use hot instead of mild jelly. I'll be making this again and again.
Miss Annie, These are great! I used some of my MIL wonderful homemade pepper jelly. Moist and tasty...a definite keeper!! =)
