It’s a common misconception that anyone following a vegan or plant-based lifestyle misses out on the most delicious foods. Fortunately, giving up all animal products doesn’t require a large sacrifice.
These days, it is increasingly easier for people to find vegan-friendly versions of their favorite products. From veggie burgers and meatless chicken to plant-based cheeses and nut milk, it’s easy to find tasty treats that don’t involve animals.
But how can you make vegan food taste even better? With pepper jelly, of course!
Pepper jelly is a preserve made with various peppers, sugars, and salt in a vinegar base. It is important to note that not all pepper jelly is automatically vegan; some recipes may use gelatin, which is typically made from animal collagen.
Grandma Jones’s Pepper Jelly is thickened with pectin, a naturally occurring starch derived from fruits such as apples and citrus. Pectin allows jellies and jams to gel; without any pectin, your vegan pepper jelly would be a vegan syrup.
We currently offer 8 unique and tasty vegan pepper jelly varieties that are the perfect addition to any plant-based kitchen. Whether you’re looking for a new tofu marinade or want to spice up your vegetables, our pepper jellies will take your kitchen to the next level!
