“This is a wonderfully sweet and spicy jelly, perfect poured over cream cheese and served with crackers or as a sandwich spread. I was a little taken back when I saw that this recipe called for 15 Habaneros, but it is not overwhelming hot the sweet pineapple is a perfect balance. Be sure to wear rubber gloves or disposable latex gloves when cutting up the Habanero peppers and don't touch your eyes or mouth - they are HOT!”
12-14 4 oz. Jars
