and it was good.
Mom brought it home three weeks ago.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against the idea of spicy/hot/sweet in combination, I am, in fact, a big fan of red chilis in chocolate, but I thought the idea of jalapeno jelly was just too weird.
Also, it was green. Green is not a good jelly color.
The list of ingredients also included green bell peppers, which is not on my list of favorite vegetables (bell peppers should be yellow or red, not green) and onion juice, which clearly does not belong in jelly.
But still, I was intrigued.
Last night, being in a somewhat adventuresome mood, I toasted a slice of toast, buttered it, and spread a little bit of the jalapeno jelly on it.
It was actually quite tasty. Had a kick to it, but not as hot as I expected.
I had two slices of buttered toast with the jalapeno jelly for breakfast this morning. Went great with green tea.
So, now I’m hooked.
I still think red chilis would make a better jelly ingredient, though. With red bell peppers.
