You know I like just about anything hot. Mainly romance, blazing hot. Hahaha.
Anyway today, I took time off from writing to do something else hot. Nope, not that. Hubby is at work.
I made jalapeno pepper jelly. Most of the recipes call for a bell pepper base and then a few jalapenos. I don't care for that. So, I skip the bell pepper base and just add more jalapenos. The taste is just as good, and there's a little more heat.
