Pepper Jelly!

Rheesa, our sweet across-the-street neighbor, drops by at least once a week to gift us with samples of her baked goods, jellies, and other scrumptious offerings. She always worries about how they taste but this woman has a talent in the kitchen she's afraid to admit to.

This week, she dropped off a sample of her pepper jelly, confessing it was the first time she ever made it and asked us for our opinion.

I've tried several so-called 'gourmet' pepper jellies and Rheesa's was by far and away the BEST I have ever had. She used her own home-grown jalapenos and perfected just the right ratio of sweetness to heat the first time out.

Spread over a block of cream cheese or simply put on crackers it is a favorite appetizer of ours.

I LOVE pepper Jelly. You are fortunate to have a friend that shares :)

My mom used to make cheese cake and then top it with a jar of pepper jelly - it was a fabulous dessert.

I would just use a regular pepper jelly recipe, and sub part of it with pureed and strained strawberries. I've never heard of strawberry pepper jelly, sounds nice!

Maybe not strawberry, but a very good pepper jelly.
