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.
