Jalapeno Jelly

Jalapeno Jelly
Summer is just full of amazing fresh produce and it's great to take advantage of it all by preserving it in various ways so that you can enjoy using it for the rest of the year. Some nice ways to preserve fresh produce is by freezing it, canning it, making pickles and making jams or jellies. I always enjoy a nice homemade jam and this jalapeno jelly jelly is a favourite! I mean you really can't really go wrong with a sweet and spicy jalapeno jam with a hint of sour and saltiness, especially for breakfast on toast! Yum! I like to use this hot pepper jelly on bagels with cream cheese, on pancakes and in sandwiches, not to mention by the spoonful, and I always like to have some on hand in my pantry or in the fridge!
