We were introduced to Pepper Jelly several years ago when we received a jar as a house warming present. We found the taste to be wonderfully sweet but a little spicy, a combination we both loved!
Our jellies are all handmade in small batches using the best ingredients we can acquire. We always start with Fresh Fruit and Peppers, and we try to use local ingredients as much as we can.
If you are not familiar with the Fruit varieties of Pepper Jelly, most people tell us the get the taste of the fruit first then a POP of pepper flavor. It is wonderful to watch people’s reactions as they try it for the first time.
A lot of folks express concern over the possibility of heat from using Jalapeno and Habanero peppers in these jellies, but let me assure you we remove the seeds from the peppers before processing. This eliminates most of the heat, but leave the fabulous pepper taste.
Pepper Jelly is delicious as a snack or appetizer served over softened cream cheese with crackers, but be sure to check out our recipe page for more great recipe ideas.
