Has anyone else tried the bourbon jelly made by City Grocery Foods in Frankfort? They were serving it at the sampler in April.

I like it. It tastes good. Perhaps even more importantly, it tastes like bourbon. If you like bourbon and like jelly, you will like this because it simply tastes like bourbon in jelly form, rather than like jelly with some bourbon in it. Its consistency is thinner than most jellies, almost like a very thick syrup, and its makers suggest its use on waffles and pancakes in addition to the breads you normally ply with jelly.

Their suggestion that it be used to glaze chicken, pork, turkey or fish also makes sense. Online, a 9.2 oz. jar is $7.00. It’s also available at several Kentucky retailers.
