"Hell Fire Pepper Jelly is my new condiment of choice for all the right reasons: it's delicious, it is from organically grown ingredients, and most importantly, it dances right on the edge of spicy and sweet in a delicious tango of provocation and pleasure. I particularly love it with some semi-soft pecorino smeared on warm crusty bread but I also love it on every single sandwich as well as with grilled fish or even a simple steak. One warning: it is highly addictive." Chef Mario Batali
