Hot Pepper Jam and Cream Cheese Mon, 10/29/07 3:17 PM (permalink)
Hi,
How many of you have ever tried the snack popular around Pennsylvania Dutch country, Cream cheese and Pepper Jam on a cracker, We buy the homemade pepper jam in Lancaster every visit and it is a favorite party snack. Just let your guests make their own!!!! I've had the pepper jam(or Jelly) Hot or regular..commercial or homemade.
If you're in New Jersey try the home made from Kimball's Farm in Belvidere New Jersey. The lady there makes it from an old recipe and it's my favorite!!! Even beats the Amish

    I've tried it. Got to say it is not my favorite even though I like both ingrediants well enough on their own. I don't get it.

    However, I have also had the creamcheese covered with cocktail sauce and either crabmeat or little shrimp. I can't stand that. I may be more of a fan if it was a warm dish, but I don't care enough to try it.

    probably not what you were going for. I do like pepper jelly on crackers.

        I hate the stuff. We have several jars given to us as hostess gifts. I will be glad to send it to anyone who wants to pay the postage............Yuck!

            Lee,
            I grew up in California and my mom (who is 5th generation Californian) used to make this! It was her favorite "easy hors d'oeuvre". I still love it, with Wheat Thins, and buy hot pepper jelly when I see a jar on the road that looks good... so I have had it from several states in many different parts of the country!
            Yum!

              Hot pepper jelly is also good with a soft goat cheese on crackers. A good pepper jelly makes all the difference!

                The pepper jelly is also good over mascarpone cheese-serve with wheat crackers and you have kind of a sweet and hot appetizer..excellent stuff!

                  I like hot pepper jelly with brie, some fruit and hearty crackers.
                  Throw in some wine and life is good.

                    This, I think, I can get behind.

                      I like it a lot. The first time I ever had jalapeno poppers they were stuffed with cream cheese and served with warm papper jelly for dipping - DELISH!

                        There's a local restaurant whose specialty is grilled chicken livers served with hot pepper jelly (probably heated to soften) as a dipping sauce. I'd say that was another good way for using pepper jelly.

                            Yeah AP, me too, don't think there's much to them, maybe tossed in a little oil, salted and peppered, then grilled.

                              I make pepper jelly frequently.

                              Scarlet, just use the recipe on the Certo insert. I usually add more hot peppers.

                              As good as it is spread over cream cheese, try it with a good mellow cheddar. I prefer it that way.

                                I love the stuff. I think this may be my favorite snack.

                                When in Lynchburgh, VA, a few years back, we went to the local farmer's market, and I found a garlic/hot pepper jelly. It was outstanding.

                                  this is a site that i've ordered from in the past...good stuff.

                                  texaspepperjelly.com


                                  also, the harry and david's onion pepper relish is good with just about anything including cream cheese.

                                      Pepper jelly and cream cheese is a popular item in the Dog's house. Usually gets served on Triskits.

                                        Add me to the favorite snack list! I love this stuff...can't get enough of it.. My other fave cream cheese treat was shrimp and cocktail sauce dumped over a block of cream cheese and eaten on ritz crackers.

                                            I make about 10 jars a year of Thai Hot Pepper Jelly which last the year and I give to friends. Over cream cheese is the best on a cracker but I have also had it with pork, using it like a mint jelly for lamb. I've tasted many hot pepper jellies and I like the Thai hot pepper the best in making the jelly. One evening this week I'll post my recipe.

                                              I remember visiting my Aunt in VA back in 1995.
                                              They lived on my grandparents 600 acre farm, and she made a total "farmers" breakfast every morning.

                                              Home made biscuits, ham, pepper jelly, cream cheese, eggs, bacon, sausage, any type of toast you wanted. Probably more food, but I cant remember.
                                              She would be up at 5 AM (the cows woke me shortly after that), making scratch biscuits. The smells would waft upstairs where I was "sleeping", and slowly made me crawl out of bed.
                                              This would continue at "dinner", then supper.
                                              There would be at least 3 types of meats, fresh veggies galore, the omnipresent pepper jelly and cream cheese, and more biscuits.
                                              She would put out a spread that probably netted me 5 pounds during the 4 days I spent with my aunt and uncle.

                                              She made home made tomato juice, oh so good.
                                              I disctinctly remember the pepper jelly, (It was mild bell peppers), and we would sit during the day talking and munching on Triskets slathered with cream cheese and jelly.

                                              (DesertDog, Funny you mentioned the triskets in your post.. must be a thang)

                                              They day I left, she sent home with me; homemade tomato juice (not enough),, 6 "fresh from the farm" turkey sandwiches with tons of mayo and black pepper, a couple jars of pepper jelly, and her love.
                                              It would be the last time I saw her.

                                              Yes, I love pepper jelly and cream cheese.

                                                We had Brie and Reeses Hot Pepper Jelly as appetizers before our Turkey Dinner.

                                                        We have lots of kinds of "pepper jelly" in NM. Red chile jam, green chile jelly. Also nice combos with fruits, like red chile and peach jam, green chile and pineapple jelly, orange marmelade and chile, habenaro and mange, and sometimes its done up with cream cheese. Crackers are fine, but how about on a tortilla? My fave.

                                                          Hot pepper jelly

                                                          2 red bells peppers seeded, ribs removed.
                                                          10-14 habaneros stemmed, seeded.(use gloves)
                                                          (or handful of thai peppers stemmed)(or red cherry bombs stemmed, seeded, ribs removed)
                                                          1 1/2 cups white vinegar
                                                          7 cups sugar.
                                                          1 envelope Certo.

                                                          Wash about 10 jelly jars and bands (ACE hardware has them), place lids in boiled water until ready to use. Prepare large pot of boiling water for the hot water bath.
                                                          Blenderize peppers and vinegar.
                                                          Use a strainer, strain pepper mix into stainless steel or other non aluminum pot with 7 cups sugar.
                                                          Bring to ROLLING boil, stirring often.
                                                          Immediately pour in Certo. Bring back to ROLLING boil for 1 minute only, constantly stirring.
                                                          Take off heat, skim off scum quickly.
                                                          Pour into jelly jars. Lid and seal them.
                                                          Place into hot water bath 5 minutes.
                                                          Take out, let rest 24 hours till lid pops in and cooled and set.

                                                            Tara, that's a beautiful remembrance.

                                                            My friend Michele came to visit about three weekends ago--she always brings a ton of great food--but this time she brought along a jar of this http://www.fostersmarket.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=102-1&Category_Code= and nearly started a riot. She also brought mascarpone and a couple varieties of little crackers, and people were elbowing and roughhousing to get at the mascarpone and Foster's. It was fixin to get ugly.
