I was a little confused by the description/reviews. I expected the finished product to be a bit thicker, based on the photos. I did not use the gelatin, as I wasn't looking for a pepper jelly. That being said, the taste was very good. I used "full cowboy" leaving the seeds. I found it to be a bit salty, and will not add salt next time. I cooked an additional 25 minutes at simmer to try and reduce the liquid, but even after cooling for 3 hours, I still had lots of runny liquid left. For me this is a work in progress.....I'll keep trying to get the right consistency. It is definitely not too hot. So I encourage others to keep the seeds....it is wonderful that way!
Made and served with Ritz crackers, and took the previous reviewers advice and added some cream cheese on the side.. It made for a delightful treat during the game. DS really enjoyed this too. Went full cowboy by the way.. Made for PRMR tag..
I made the Cowgirl Candy version, and my guests said to try at least the 1/2 cowgirl / 1/2 cowboy version since as delicious as it is, it can use more heat! We may ultimately go full cowboy on this one! I served this over a brick of cream cheese with my DH's favorite Wheat Thins crackers. We'll be making this again since it was such a BIG HIT! Thanks, 2Bleu! Made for PRMR Tag.
Sorry 2Bleu, but this just didn't turn out for me. I followed the directions perfectly, but mine just didn't set up. I don't know what went wrong. Made for PRMR Tag.
