Sometimes you just need a little bourbon!
We were near
, in bourbon country, a while back and I saw a jar of bourbon jelly on the sideboard at the bed and breakfast where we were staying. I enquired about it and was told how delicious it is on biscuits, pancakes, etc. so of course; I bought a jar of it. He was right, it is! Louisville, KY
Last night while I was sautéing chicken breasts, I looked in the refrigerator for something to complement the chicken and saw the bourbon jelly sitting there. So, I grabbed it and the bottle of Nellie & Joe’s Lime Juice. (If you’ve never used it, it’s the best!) Then mushrooms were added, a little garlic powder, salt and pepper and dinner was about ready.
Since the jelly was a little sweet, I counteracted this with the lime juice. They blended great together and along with the tomato salad, dinner was a delicious thing!
Now, I hear that there is Cherry Bourbon Jelly….
