spicy winter meals, easy snacks, ,easy suppers January is always cold, but this January seems even colder; our winter meals need something spicy to help warm us up!

Whatever kind of meat you have planned for any winter meal, a little (or a lot) of Texas Pepper Jelly will turn it into a gourmet delight that will warm your family from head to toe. I use my crockpot a LOT, winter or summer, and a meal made in the crockpot is a natural for some pepper jelly added to make it even more delicious.

Tonight, for example, the crock pot was filled with a lovely pork roast and apples. I put the pork roast in the slow cooker before I left for work this morning, around 7:30 Texas Pepper Jelly, Granny Smith apple, applesauce,a.m., on low, and when I got home at 4:30 p.m., I drained it, added a full cup of Apple Habanero Pepper Jelly, and let it stay in the crockpot, still on low, until my family arrived home. I put potatoes in the oven to bake, at 5, along with a pan of baked beans, and we ate at six. There are no leftovers.

A little added spicy something can turn a winter meal on a freezing cold night into a warm, delightful experience, and with Texas Pepper Jelly, that’s an easy thing to do.
