Hot Pepper Peach Cheese Ball

It’s no wonder that our Hot Pepper Peach Preserves have remained a fan (and employee) favorite throughout the years, bursting with chunks of real sun-ripened peaches and speckled with red pepper flakes, they are the perfect balance of sweet and heat. A few of our favorite uses tend to be the simplest; nothing is better than spreading the preserves on warm toast in the morning or topping a round of brie for a easy snack. With so much flavor and versatility it’s no wonder our Hot Pepper Peach Preserves remain an iconic product in our line of small batch, from scratch specialty foods.

In honor of August being National Peach Month we will be featuring a few of our favorite recipes for Hot Pepper Peach and we’re kicking it off with a classic cheese ball you just have to make.

16 oz. Cream cheese, softened

2 Tbsp. Onion, minced
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, finely shredded, divided

Best cheese ball you ever tasted!!!

Perfect combination of sweet and hot. The first bite is one of sweet, cool and creamy fruit; followed slowly by the hint of pepper. The combination creates a treat for virtually all parts of your tongue. Great for any and all occasions.
