The Perfect Topping, But What Can You Put It On?

At the Cambridge River Festival in Cambridge, MA today (6/14/08), found a couple of my favorites that I only seem to eat at Festivals and Farmers' Markets. Along with a big bag of kettle corn, I purchased a jar of Hot Pepper Jelly (I got Tyler's Sweet Revenge - Hot Pepper Jelly).

I truly love this stuff. It's a great mix of sweet and spicy. Somehow the jelly seems to hold on to spice from the peppers and let it linger on your tongue. There's only one rather large problem with this stuff. I haven't figured out how to incorporate it into my day-to-day eating. Serving suggestions usually include using it as a glaze on fish or chicken or spreading it on a turkey sandwich. Unfortunately, I generally don't have these things in my regular diet. Usually, I'll just get a box of Wheat Thins and dig in.

Are you looking for suggestions? I'm thinking on a tortilla with some jack and avocado...? Maybe with chicken too in there for a meal?

Thanks for the suggestion. I actually had a bunch of it today with cheese and crackers... as you predicted, it was great with jack. Thanks!

... I'll welcome additional suggestions... I'll keep thinking...

Try it poured over cream cheese, and have that on crackers. Mmmmm. Simple and tasty.
