While at the Wine and cheese show I had my first real encounter with jelly spread. They served me a cracker with roasted red pepper jelly. Totally afraid, I closed my eyes and popped the whole cracker in my mouth. I was sort of waiting for a gross texture and weird taste to envelope me since Jellies have always weirded me out. This is most likely because I have always associated Jellies with..well..Jello. And that is a dessert for kids…not an appetizer for adults! Well my friends, I have been proven wrong. SO WRONG. I am in love with this delicious sweet, salty, spicy mixture. I had to have it. So while out on my grocery trip I went to the gourmet foods isle and found this beauty.
Gourmet Red Chili Spread..mmmmmmm
I tried it on EVERYTHING when I got home. Rice crackers, Old Cheddar (my fave), even with a slice of leftover prime rib. THIS is my favourite new condiment. I recommend you go get yourself some today!
Now if only my husband will get on this boat…he still thinks it looks disgusting.
