Pairs Well With
My cousin used to make this and combine with cream cheese for the best hors d'oeuevres!
Great (jelly only) with chicken or lamb; Glaze grilled baby back ribs with this jelly during the last 15 min. of cooking.
Note: If only green hot peppers are available, use a red rather then a green bell pepper.
