If you use the TikTok app (something that a few members of the Jones family seem to be outrightaddicted to, though I won’t name names), you may have been exposed to the hilarious "Corn Kid.” But corn isn’t just “a big lump with knobs” that “has the juice,” it’s also one of the most popular, versatile, and just plain delicious crops that can be planted and harvested in the fall.
While many other crops require the extra heat and sunlight that spring and summer provide, growing corn in the cooler autumn months actually helps cultivate a richer, sweeter flavor. That’s partially why it’s such an iconic ingredient for many of our favorite fall foods, including Thanksgiving dinner.
You can never go wrong with fresh, hot corn served with a little butter and salt. But if you’re looking for some more unique fall corn recipes to try, you’ve come to the right place. Nothing jazzes up this familiar favorite quite like a jar of Pepper Jelly! Order some today to try one of the tasty recipes below!
Corn is one of those rare foods that seems to pair well with almost any flavor. Its natural sweetness perfectly complements fruits like blueberries, lime, and pumpkin, while also adding depth to savory items like steak and pulled pork. Probably the best way to enhance the sweetness of corn, though, is with the spiciness of peppers.
Or, in this case, Pepper Jelly.
Here are four unique pepper jelly corn recipes that will bring some sweet heat to even the chilliest autumn day…
Snacktime is a lot more interesting with this unforgettable corn bread cookie recipe. For this dish, we’re going to be making our own cornmeal from dried kernels, but you can use store-bought cornmeal as well. Just don’t forget the Pepper Jelly!

1 cup flour

Elotes, more widely known as Mexican street corn, have exploded in popularity here in the US these last few years. The traditional version of the dish is made with chili powder, sour cream, and mayonnaise. If you really want to impress your taste buds, though, try it with Pepper Jelly instead.
When people think about fall corn recipes, they don’t always think of caramel corn. Not only is it a tasty treat sure to satisfy your sweet tooth, but it’s also easier to make it home than you’d think. The extra-spicy burn of our Habanero Pepper Jelly works wonders when combined with sugary caramel.
