I’m really excited, too, because apricot jam is my family’s favorite, and now that we can get it with that master touch of habanero, our sandwiches, dips, and other favorites are really going to be kicked up a notch.
I am already thinking about making some cocktail meatballs for the weekend. I have a recipe for a quick and easy sauce using pretty much any kind of jelly or jam, and Texas Pepper Jelly’s apricot habanero is going to make my good ol’ tried-and-true cocktail sauce into a real treat.
Here’s how I do it:
1/2 cup Texas Pepper Jelly’s apricot habanero
3 cups bottled barbecue sauce
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced green or red pepper, or both
Mix it all together and pour it into your crock pot. Add the meatballs or cocktail sausages or little wieners or shredded beef or pork or pretty much whatever kind of meat your family likes. Mixing the sausages and wieners together makes for a good dish, too.
Let your crockpot simmer for several hours and serve.
Mmm, Apricot Habanero pepper jelly. Thank you, Texas Pepper Jelly!
