Festive Apricot Jalapeño Jelly is the perfect jelly for novice canners and it makes a great holiday gift for neighbors, friends and teachers!
My mom’s Molasses Cookies and this Apricot Jalapeño Jelly are the holidays for me. Both mark the holiday season and both make an appearance at just about every family gathering this time of year.
Aside from the gorgeous amber color and festive red and green flecks of pepper, this jelly is good on anything you slather it on. We mostly enjoy it poured over a brick of cream cheese and served with Ritz Crackers (SO DANG GOOD) but it also shines on a toasty grilled cheese and as a spread to go with a holiday ham.
The ingredients in the jam can be sourced year round making it a perfect choice if you want a homemade gift to hand out and it’s a great (read: easy) recipe to try if you’re new to canning. Tied with a bit of twine, who wouldn’t be excited to get this as a gift?
The recipe for Apricot Jalapeño Jelly can be found HERE over on the Imperial Sugar website. I was compensated for this recipe but like always, all thoughts and opinions are mine. I’m thrilled to share my recipe with Imperial and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as my family does!
