There is no objectively best flavor or style of pepper jelly. The best way to judge pepper jelly is on a case-by-case, person-by-person basis.

So what is the ideal pepper jelly for your palate? To properly answer this question, it’s best to determine what you generally like to eat and start testing your options based on that. 

Flavor is the critical element to consider when trying to pick the right pepper jelly for your palate. Luckily, Grandma Jones’ eight pepper jelly flavors represent a wide range of palates. Find the pepper jelly that works for you by learning more about our selection!

Intense Flavor

For the most purely flavorful of Grandma Jones’ offerings, look no further than Grandma Jones’ Cranberry Habanero Pepper Jelly. As its name suggests, this explosive recipe blends the sweetness of cranberries with the heat of habaneros, creating an intense blend of flavors that is unmatched. A favorite of the Jones family, this is the pepper jelly you are most likely to eat right out of the jar.

Sweet Tooth

We offer a pair of pepper jellies that are specifically designed to satisfy the sweet tooth in all of us. First is the exotic Caribbean Mango Pepper Jelly from Grandma Jones, which serves as an excellent complement to fish and chicken dishes. Our other favorite sweet jelly is Grandma Jones’ Pomegranate Pepper Jelly, first developed following the success of our cranberry offerings. Either of these flavors are sure to please any palates that require a little less kick.

The Holiday Season

During the holiday season, especially Thanksgiving, we recommend introducing your friends and family to the sweet pleasures of Grandma Jones’ Cranberry Pepper Jelly. By combining the nostalgic flavors of the holiday season with the signature deliciousness of our other recipes, this cranberry-based option is the perfect pepper jelly for those who are looking to spread good cheer throughout the year.

Family Eating at Table


A Balanced Approach

Grandma Jones’ Traditional Pepper Jelly is the original flavor. For anyone out there whose palate is unfamiliar with pepper jelly, this is a great place to start. Traditional Pepper Jelly can be used as a glaze, dip or spread, maximizing its utility. The perfect blend of sweet and spicy, this pepper jelly will bring happiness to the widest audience, just as it was intended.

Hot, Hot, Hot!

For those with a scorched palate, turn up the heat with some of our spiciest pepper jellies. Grandma Jones’ Jalapeno Pepper Jelly livens up any dish with its volcanic flavoring and addictive qualities, while Grandma Jones’ Habanero Pepper Jelly takes things to an even hotter level. Both our Jalapeno and Habanero pepper jellies have just a hint of sweetness, meaning they are more nuanced than the average, scalding products you might find elsewhere.

Smoky Goodness

Though based on one of the earliest recipes we shared with the world, Grandma Jones’ Southwestern Chipotle Pepper Jelly is perhaps the most unique we offer. With a distinct, smoked taste, this pepper jelly flavor is perfect for those looking to expand the range of their palate. A true delight for the taste buds, test out our Southwestern Chipotle Pepper Jelly in any context, from a cracker tray to a fancy fish dinner.
