Made with Cheese
Jalapeno peppers, washed

Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil, then place a baking rack on top of the foil lined pan. Wearing gloves, cut jalapenos in half lengthwise.
Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and membrane.
Spread cream cheese in the cavity of each jalapeno, making sure to completely fill the pepper.
Cut bacon slices in half. Wrap each jalapeno popper with half a slice of bacon, then use a toothpick to secure the bacon. Place jalapeno poppers on baking rack.
Bake on middle rack of preheated oven for 20 minutes. Alternately, you can cook these on the grill. Set up the grill for indirect cooking and heat to 400 degrees.
Spoon 3 Tablespoons Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread into a microwave safe custard cup. Microwave for 10-15 seconds to liquefy.
Remove poppers from the oven or grill, and using a silicone brush, glaze with Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread. Bake another 10 minutes and serve.
