Pepper jam is a sweet jam with a hint of spice for the perfect combination. This jam can be used as a simple spread, a delicious glaze, or can be made into a tasteful appetizer. If you have never tried this type of jam before, once you get a taste you’ll be sad you missed it all this time.
Sour cherries and red raspberries are a perfect pair when it comes to jam. Not only can it be used like your typical jam as a spread but it can be the perfect topping to angel food cake or a homemade cheesecake.

If you make this more as a preserve than it can be an incredible topping when warmed up on a serving of vanilla ice cream.
Any type of jam or jelly can enhance a delicious treat. Don’t limit yourself to common types of jellies like grape or strawberry.
