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?

    My favorite thing this year is participating in my cousin John’s family by attending their daughter’s school functions, her horseback riding and her intelligence and readiness to learn things this “younger” generation has no use for like making jam, dressing and going out to dinner( being able to accommodate herself to proper etiquette). She has brought back a lot in my life,
