Welcome to the Pepper Jelly Craze! Each month there are thousands of searches on the Internet from people searching for where to a) buy pepper jelly, b) find pepper jelly recipes and c) identify specific foods to pair with their pepper jelly. We’ve scoured the internet, listened to customers and compiled a list of all of our own ways for eating Pepper Jelly to find “28 Ways to Eat Pepper Jelly“. If you have visited this blog previously, you already know that here at Armadillo Pepper we eat pepper jelly on just about anything we can find. Already published in this blog are:
- #28, Mussels with Raspberry Pepper Jelly Sauce

- #23, Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with Grilled Watermelon and Datil Pepper Glaze
Also, over at our Squidoo Lens you can find our recipe for #3, Datil Pepper Jelly Chicken Wings.
Over the next few weeks, we are going to prepare dishes for most of the 28 Ways to Eat Pepper Jelly and post the results here on this blog. We are expecting that some items may fall off the list and some items may get added. If you have any suggestions for how you eat pepper jelly, please let us know here on this blog!!
To kick things off, let’s look at #18, Pepper Jelly with Popsicles.
We grabbed some Pina Colada Popsicles and tried this with Raspberry Jalapeno Pepper Jelly. We tried applying the pepper jelly direct to the popsicle with a spoon and then we melted some pepper jelly and tried dipping. The dipping didn’t work for us at all. We couldn’t seem to get any pepper jelly to stick to the popsicle. Putting approximately 1/3 of a teaspoon direct on the popsicle worked the best for us. We had to keep “spooning” the pepper jelly on each bite of the popsicle, because there didn’t seem to be any obvious way for applying all the jelly at once! It was a very nice flavor, but there is a little work involved.
Please let us know how you eat Pepper Jelly! We will be adding additional posts over the next 4 weeks.
