Hot Pepper Mustard Butter
Thanks to the thickener Clear Jel (available online), this unusual sandwich spread has a luscious, creamy consistency. If you want a milder taste, use 4 ounces hot peppers and 4 ounces mild peppers. This recipe comes from the Glass Rooster Cannery cooking school and farm store in Sunbury, Ohio.
Because hot chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
