Jalapeno Jelly!

Jalpeno Jelly is one of Mr. Wonderful’s favorite treats.  At first thought it might sound completely unappealing, but trust me, if you like sweet, sour and spicy all together, you’ll love this jelly!

I’ve been known to put a dab of this jelly on a triscuit, add a slice of ham and some swiss cheese, pop it into a 400 degree oven for a few minutes and wa-la – perfectly simple snacks!
