My friend Gary has the best gourmet peppers and pepper jelly. I be lovin' me some hot pepper jelly so I placed an order in for his "Special" Scorpion Pepper Jelly. I gotta tell ya, it's darn hot and so OMGOSH delicious. Here is my first recipe using this hot & sweet jar of deliciousness. Cooking with Passion, sw :)

Well Shiri, made the wings again. The first time I just put 1 teaspoon of Garys Ghost pepper sauce in and that was warm and taste, the way I like my wings. I got brave this time and added 1 tablespoon. I started eating the wings and the fire alarm went off and it made the backside of my head and forehead drip with sweat no joke. But flavor of the wings is just outstanding. The jelly sat for a while but was still not hot like I thought it might would be. It will be okay to use for cooking so it will not go to waste. Will be doing another batch of jelly to see if it will be hotter. If not hotter, I know how now how, (Ghost pepper sauce) LOL. Thanks for recipe again. Rick
