First taste sweet golden warm summery peach with a hint of smokey spice... then warmth, then heat... just up to the point of concern... then subsiding back to mellow peachy goodness. On top of a cream cheese coated cracker (or even better, a PBJ on homemade buttermilk bread!), the heat is mellowed to a gentle "creeper" warm that sends them back for more... and more... and more.
Adapted from the Ball No Sugar Needed cooked peach jam recipe.
Try it, you'll like it. Seriously.
This type of pectin gives a soft set - perfect for putting on cream cheese.
I add a handful of red peppers to serve as a warning as the orange habaneros meld right in and are invisible.
WEAR GLOVES. PUT A TOWEL DOWN AT YOUR WORKPLACE TO CATCH ANY SEEDS, ETC. DO NOT TOUCH FACE.
Buttermilk soaked compress helps any burning areas that are inadvertently touched.
