We've taken our favorite Jalapeño Popper recipe and elevated it with smoked cream cheese! We prep the jalapeños, stuff them with smoked cream cheese, dust them with Lane's BBQ Apple Pie Seasoning, and glaze them with our award-winning Apple Cider Pepper Spread. You can find the recipe for smoked cream cheese here on our website. These are the appetizers your guests will go home talking about, so be a friend and tell them where to find the recipe!
Skip the golden arches drive-thru and grill up some baby back ribs to make Unicoi Preserves Rib Royale Sandwich fit for a crowd. Glazed with a homemade BBQ sauce made with Unicoi Preserves Cherry Jalapeno Spread, and spiced with Lane's BBQ Sweet Heat Rub, this is a sandwich fit for a king and queen!
We used local Tantrum Brewing Company's Gypsy Queen Mexican style lager to make beer bread. This bread is delicious with Unicoi Preserves and cheese. Check out the video we created for The Ingles Table and swing by the Ingles deli for Unicoi Preserves. Remember, we're in the Deli, not with the jelly!
Unicoi Preserves loves cheese, and we love our rescued Brittany Spaniel, Annie!

A delicious cocktail recipe I dreamed up during an evening thunderstorm that combines the wonderful flavors of Skrewball peanut butter flavored whiskey with Kahlua rum and coffee liqueur. I paired this with a slice of grilled pound cake, topped with a dollop of peanut butter whiskey infused whipped mascarpone cream and some of our Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread.
- 2 ounces Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey
- 1 ounce Kahlua Rum and Coffee Liqueur
- 1 old fashioned glass
- 1 large cube cocktail ice cube
- 1 8 ounce container Mascarpone cheese
- 1 cup Heavy whipping cream
- 4 teaspoons Powdered Sugar
- 4 tablespoons Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey
- 1 loaf pound cake
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 1 jar Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread
Place 2 ounces of Skrewball Whiskey into a cocktail shaker. Add 1 ounce Kahlua Liqueur and shake to combine. Place a single large cocktail ice cube into an old fashioned cocktail glass. Pour cocktail over ice cube and serve immediately.
Combine mascarpone cheese, whipping cream, powdered sugar and Skrewball whiskey in a clean, medium sized mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip until soft peaks form. Cover and refrigerate until needed, up to 2 days ahead.
Preheat cast iron or non-stick skillet on medium heat. Cut pound cake into 3/4 inch thick slices and butter both sides of the cake slices evenly. Toast each side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on dessert plate. Alternatively, you can toast the buttered pound cake slices on your grill. Grill over direct heat, 2-3 minutes a side to toast the cake and allow grill marks to form.Prepare and Serve
Top each slice of grilled pound cake with a dollop of Skrewball mascarpone cream and a spoonful of Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread. Serve alongside Dark and Stormy Skrewball cocktail. Enjoy!
