What To Do With Pepper Jelly
By Amanda J Hales
We like our jelly, our fruity, delicious topping for toast and the like, and we like our peppers. Tangy, spicy, hot or not, they’re a great addition to a lot of foods. We chugged along liking our peppers and our jelly until the day that someone decided to try them together and the result is pepper jelly. What became of the jelly and pepper combination can only be called heavenly as the pepper lends the heat while the jelly lends the sweet for a sweet-hot combination like nothing else on earth.
Now, while you may have had pepper jelly on toast or biscuits before, did you know it is way more versatile than that? What used to be for breakfast suddenly has a whole host of ways to use it that will tantalize those taste buds!
The old traditional favourite of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are of course a staple to many a diet, but add pepper jelly with your peanut butter and hear your taste buds sing!! The combination can also be enjoyed on crackers for a nibble-y snack anytime and add it to cream cheese on a bagel or biscuit and look out! Taste heaven awaits.
But that’s not all, as this sweet-heat treat can also be used as a marinade or a glaze (watered down a bit of course) for cuts of meat like pork and chicken as you barbecue them to perfection. You can even use it for pulled pork for a flavour sensation unlike any other because of course pepper jelly comes in a wide variety of flavours.
That not enough for you? How about using it as a sauce for hot wings, or you can use it to kick fried veggies up a notch or two as well. With so many flavours, you’re sure to find the taste combination that the whole family will love.
Pepper jelly has been around for a few years now so of course people have experimented and tested it with a variety of foods. While everyone has their favourite, experimenting with your own recipes is always a fun idea, just be sure to write down what you are using in case it’s the best thing ever and you need to replicate it!
Pepper jelly goes with anything and everything, so what are you waiting for? If you haven’t tried it, get on it, quick and if you have, go ahead and have some fun with this amazing condiment.
