Fish Pepper Jelly
« on: October 03, 2016, 03:13:50 AM »
Decided to use some of the Fish peppers from the garden to make pepper jelly. It has some bite to it.  Nothing to make you flop around on the floor, but enough to have me reaching for a glass of milk after eating a tablespoon of the jelly. That's a win in my book.

Yes - it's sweet, too.  I think that's why I like it so much.  It's sort of like Chinese Kung Pao sauce - the sweetness sucks you in and then the heat hits  :o

Pour a half pint of that jelly over a bar of cream cheese and serve with some good crackers and you got you something  ;) ;) ;)

That recipe looks great.  I'm adding it to my "to do" list.  Thanks for sharing.

And, DoubleB

I had to laugh.  I've already had the cream cheese and crackers out with the jelly.  That's my favorite way to eat it  ;D  It also explains why I'm 40 pounds overweight...... LOL.

I am not familiar with "Fish peppers" but I will say we love Pepper jelly.
I make mine with Jalapenos.
