Review: Sweet Heat & Hell Fire Pepper Jelly Giveaway

When you think of jelly, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Sweet? Fruity? Innocent? Whatever you thought you knew about jelly has been shaken up by Jenkins Jellies‘ best-selling gluten-free, vegan Hell Fire Pepper Jelly. And I am here to tell you that is it so much more than just another condiment in the door of your fridge. In fact there is an entire cookbook called Sweet Heat to prove it. With fifty recipes and color photographs throughout, Sweet Heat is a love letter to the pleasures of Hell Fire Pepper Jelly, which works with all kinds of dishes.

From cocktails to appetizers, mains and zesty desserts, Sweet Heat showcases the unique versatility of Hell Fire Pepper Jelly. The foreword to this hardcover book is written by Gwyneth Paltrow, and sprinkled throughout are enthusiastic blurbs from Celebrity Chef Mario Batali, Blythe Danner, Kate Capshaw (Spielberg), Camryn Manheim, Maria Bello and others.

When I first opened the jar of Hell Fire Pepper Jelly and tested it out, I immediately thought of the sweet and spicy Hawaiian pizza I once made and was excited to see a couple pizza recipes included in the Sweet Heat cookbook.

I tried the Pizza Stu with Pizzazz, a recipe created by Titina Folliero (the owner of Folliero’s Pizza located in Highland Park, CA), and the sweet heat of the jelly added to the pizza sauce was most excellent. This pizza, topped with fresh Mozzarella and arugula, will definitely have reruns once I get my hands on some more jars of the “HFPJ”.

What else do I have planned with my precious jar or jelly? I have visions of making some Kickin’ Kornbread (pictured on the book’s cover) for my first batch of chili this fall, for starters. I would also love to marinade chicken in it, or even mix it into a burger.

In case you haven’t heard enough, they also have 3 other sweet heat jellies: Guava Brava, Fiery Figs, and Passion Fire. And guess what? I am offering a giveaway so that one of you can get yours hands on this book a long with a selection of jellies! Enter by using the Rafflecopter widget below!
