01 Jun Texas Tips: Spicy. . . . Ice Cubes?
You’ll think this Texas Tip is odd, until you try it.
After you try it, you’ll be hooked, too.
Spoon some Texas Pepper Jelly into an ice cube tray. Put the tray in the freezer.
The next day, when the pepper jelly is frozen solid, twist the pepper jelly cubes out of the tray and into a pitcher or punchbowl.
So far, my family has used pepper jelly ice cubes with: hot tea, iced tea, various punches, Sprite, Coke, Diet Pepsi, Mountain Dew, and coffee.
My favorite so far is pepper jelly ice cubes and Sprite. My husband likes them floating in his punch. My daughter can’t decide if she likes hot or iced tea and pepper jelly ice cubes best.
My son, however, put his in a glass of white wine and proclaimed himself the winner.
(We’re going to make some spicy pepper jelly margaritas later. )
