I love pepper jelly. This recipe is a mix of sweet and heat. My favorite way to use it is: Pour some pepper jelly over a block of cream cheese and serve with crackers. You can't get any easier than that for an appetizer and it has always been a crowd pleaser. I like to have both items on hand, just in case I have unexpected guests. This recipe makes 3 cups of pepper jelly and it will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 months. It also makes a great hostess or neighborly gift!
