Grape Jalapeno Jelly may not be the best idea! Each year I have a small harvest of concord grapes, if the birds and squirrels decide they want to share.
In the past, I have made grape biscuits (to be shared another year), but this year I wanted to try something different. I like grape jelly and I like jalapeno jelly…why not try a combo? Sounded like a good idea.
I searched the web and did not find ONE SINGLE recipe. I adapted a blackberry jalapeno jelly but decided to cut back on the jalapeno so it wasn’t too hot. Big mistake! While the grape jelly is beautiful and tastes good, the slight jalapeno aftertaste is perplexing to my taste buds.
Not all of my great kitchen experiments are winners. This is one of the losers. I will not share the recipe but I’ll share photos. I’m hoping to salvage this disaster by using the jelly in a meatball sauce or perhaps mixing with a hot pepper jelly and serving over brie or cream cheese. I’ll keep you posted, but be aware…if a recipe isn’t posted anywhere on the internet, there may be a reason for it.
