this sunday i had
a day off what i thought was going to be a day off. i had been putting off making red pepper jelly for quite some time. it’s probably the most time consuming jelly to make. in my opinion.
so, at 12:30pm on sunday i started the process.
five and a half hours and 71 jars later, i finished.
then last night, i got them all pretty with a piece of polka do fabric and my little labels. finished.
have you ever had red pepper jelly? it’s delicious and really not all that spicy.
there’s two ways to serve it. first, you can mix it with cream cheese to spread on crackers. or (my preferred mentioned) just pour it on top of a block of soften cheese cheese. again, to spread on crackers. let me tell you. it is dynamite! i loosely used this recipe for the jam.
i also, with the help of my mom, whipped up two extra large batches of charming hot chocolate mix. milk and white.
this stuff is delish! so much better than store bought. makes a perfect little and tasty stocking stuffer!
slowly but surely i’m getting ready for the holidays. how about you?
is next week really thanksgiving!? oh my! better get busy!
and be sure to stop back here tomorrow! i’m having a little giveaway with five winners!!!
