I make pepper jam–
a kiss that stings tongues with sweet
simmered into heat
Me loves mucho mucho :). You are on a roll Susan
Thank you–I literally made this yesterday–nothing like all those peppers boiled in vinegar and sugar to clear your sinuses when you are standing over the pot 😉
Ouch! Do you literally put this on a roll, Susan? 🙂
Oh, yes–it is lovely spread over something bland, like a mild, soft cheese on something veggie (celery sticks) or toast 😉
I love hot & sweet together…
…but a little can go a very long way. Also use it in glazes where I want a hint of heat.
Mmmmm … so do I … drooling now! heh-heh 🙂
🙂 Some on a toasted bagel with cream cheese is lovely–might have to do that right now…
Sounds appetizing, but not my kind of jam … nice haiku Susan
Thank you 😉
A little spicy on its own, for sure.
Nice take I haven’t even posted mine yet – was lost in thought
Good place to be lost, though. Thanks, Bruce.
Pepper jam … wow !!!
Oh, I love it 😉
Great take on the prompt… Can you write the recipe in three lines?
chop hot peppers fine
boil with cider vinegar
and lots of sugar
***look at that–I DID! 😉
Ooooh! You’re a little minx, aren’t you… Another piece where I love the juxtaposition of two images. Someone’s in the mood! 😉
Would you believe me if I said I was just talking about jam? hee hee–I wouldn’t believe me either…
OK, I apologize… They do say it’s the mind it goes into though! You made jam sound sexual, go you!
well–perhaps I meant both–just not at the same time–hot peppers and delicate areas do NOT go together well 😉
dig that hot little number!!
Why thank you–I am a little flushed, but not sure if it is from the heat or from the heat…
Love this haiku. Spicy indeed.
Oh Elle–thank you!
Oh, I’m jealous. I love pepper jam, smeared on a cracker with cream cheese. Yum!
one of my favorites–second best would be cider-sage, but no kick there 😦
Deliciously lovely. I like the second line.
Hazel, thank you.
Sweet heat… sounds good.
Love my sweet with a kick.
I like to have a bit of that pepper jam ~ Nice one Susan ~
thanks, Grace. Ten jars should last all year–but I do love it.
Wow! Ouch! Drool 🙂
Thanks, Jolly. I love hot & spicy, when done right 😉
What a hot take on the prompt. Well done.
Thanks, C. Had to share the love 😉
Never heard of pepper jam… sounds good 🙂
Oh, it’s yummy! It is what I do with hot peppers after I have frozen and pickled them until I can’t bear the thought of yet more fermentation and freezing 😉
too spicy for me, even though I love spicy food 😉
I am still snickering over here! I really enjoy your comments.
My husband loves to make hot-pepper jelly. His favorite is Habanero Gold. 🙂
“sweet simmered into heat”
What a luscious string of words!
Oh, thanks so very much!
