Here are just a few of the many suggestions of how to use Pam’s Pepper Jam … it’s excellent on most anything!
Whether you prefer just a hint of jalapeno pepper flavor, the addition of habaneros or the more bold taste of ghost peppers, each bite of Pam’s Pepper Jam turns the ordinary into a taste adventure. Our addictive and versatile jam is great as an hors d’oeuvre, a non-traditional condiment, and wonderful on almost anything from glazes on meats and vegetables to a topping on ice cream.
“I am a huge fan of Pam’s Pepper Jam (the spicier the better!). It is a great addition to my kitchen because I can use it so many ways…alone or with cream cheese as a cracker spread, as a glaze for any type of meat, or mixed in with chili, pasta sauce, meatballs or vegetables for an added zest. Pam uses the freshest ingredients and treats each and every jar as if it’s her first so I know that I am always getting the best product. At this point, Pam’s Pepper Jam has easily replaced salt/pepper as the spice of choice in my home anytime I want to add a more appealing flavor to my dishes!” Kristen, Minneapolis, MN
