I keep reminding y’all that often the simplest things are the best of all. Well, here’s another reminder/hint along those lines.
Any time you’re serving mashed potatoes and think you’d like to kick ’em up a notch, just whip some Texas Pepper Jelly into them.
I’ve done this with almost every kind of pepper jelly, and it turns plain old bland mashed potatoes into a zesty addition to any mean.
You can do this with mashed potatoes from a box, or from scratch. Just add the pepper jelly during the “whipping” process.
Or, you can use the pepper jelly in place of gravy.
Either way, pepper jelly will turn a very ordinary side dish into something absolutely EXTRAordinary.
