Red Pepper Jelly
I’m a huge fan of red pepper jelly. It looks so festive sitting on a plate and the smell invites you to dig in! When I have a holiday party I always make sure to have plenty of red pepper jelly on hand with luscious cream cheese and my favorite crackers.
There are lots of variations on this recipe out there and I think I’ve tried them all! But something about this particular recipe makes me want to make it again and again.
And not only is the recipe delicious, but this makes a great gift idea too. Whip up a big batch, jar it, find some fancy ribbon to put at the top and you’ve got a great housewarming gift, teachers gift or gift to give the neighbors.
If you want to ramp it up a bit, get a festive looking basket and put the jelly, some gourmet crackers, and a block of cream cheese into the basket. Wrap with cellophane and put a big red bow on top. Or you can skip the cellophane and just opt for a nice bow.
No matter who you give it to, they’ll be hoping you’ll make this again year after year.
