Well, how did my modified pineapple jalapeno jelly dip turn out?
Pretty good, but it is a little light on the heat. I do not think that I need to go the habanero route next time. Rather, my plan is to increase the amount of jalapenos and pineapple to jazz up the dip a little bit. As it stands now the flavor is heavy on the sweet because of the high sugar content.
I also think that I need to grill the pineapples for a little while to caramelize some of the sugars in an effort to give the dip a little bit of a different flavor as well.
This is the problem with canning and making your own foods…it’s a constant journey of exploration and experimentation. Like my beer brewing, it never feels like I will return to the same recipe because there are so many other enticing options to try.
