What's Cookin' Wednesday, Texas Pepper Jelly, spicy food I’ve been using Pineapple Habanero pepper jelly for a long time now, and it’s still my family’s favorite pepper jelly flavor. Texas Pepper Jelly has a new product now – Pineapple Habanero Rib Candy – which is so good, your family will sneak into your kitchen in the night to steal it.

Since it’s still so hot, I’m continuing to use my crockpot so I don’t make the house even hotter than it already is. (poor air conditioner is so overworked this year!) and here’s what we had for dinner last night; go ahead and laugh because it looked really funny. You’ll stop laughing once you taste it, though!


A whole chicken
1 large onion
1 cup Pineapple Habanero Rib Candy

What to do:

Wash and skin the chicken. Be sure the inside is clean.
Remove the onionskin and cut the onion into fourths; insert into the chicken’s cavity.
Stuff the chicken into the crockpot like a gangster stuffing a body into a water pipe. (nice image?) Pour the Rib Candy over the chicken. Cover the crockpot, set it on low, and go to work.

When you get home 8 or 10 hours later, turn off the crockpot and let the chicken “settle in.” Put it on a platter and watch the meat fall off the bones. Serve with our spicy cole slaw and some Texas-style devilled eggs!
