Every year, I set out a basket of assorted Texas Pepper Jellies on my Thanksgiving table. Not only is it really pretty to look at, my family and guests love to be able to pick and choose their favorite flavors, and try new flavors. Pepper jelly can go on anything any other kind of jelly goes on – bread, rolls, meat, and whatever you want to try some one. It’s great for vegetables, too.
Last week you read about using pepper jelly to baste your turkey. Now you’re being reminded that pepper jelly is delicious on almost everything else, as well.
My mother likes to stir a teaspoon of pepper jelly into her hot tea – she said flavored tea is always delicious but using pepper jelly not only flavors her tea, it also gives it a little spicy kick. My mother-in-law does the same thing with hot coffee!
My husband likes to stir a little Texas Pepper Jelly into his, um, other kind of drink. So do I, but please don’t tell my mom.
I always have platters of cream cheese covered with pepper jelly around the house, surrounded by crackers. Al kinds of crackers.
In other words, you can use Texas Pepper Jelly in numerous ways. If you’ve got a new idea, please tell us in the comments!
Thanksgiving is a week from Thursday. We’ll be posting more ideas, recipes, and suggestions for your holiday dinner on this blog within the next week and a half. Stay tuned~
