Welcome to the Ojai Jalapeño Jelly Blog!

red & green jalapeno peppers

Ojai is a charming little community of just over 8,000 residents.  The Ojai Valley offers amazing restaurants, shops, schools, produce, the Ojai Film Festival, & much more!

I make Ojai Jalapeño Jelly here in Ojai, California.  The glass hexagon-shaped jars of jelly nestle together perfectly for display purposes, in the pantry, or in the refrigerator.

Ojai Jalapeño Jelly should be refrigerated after opening

Depending on the time of year the Peppers have different colors- like Bell Peppers, the Jalapeño Pepper also presents in varying colors from green to red & orange.  Ojai Jalapeño Jelly is scheduled to be on the shelves of The Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, as well as il fustino in Santa Barbara.

  1. Congrats Suze!!! I love your website and your jelly. What a great idea! Congrats on where it will be featured. Some more ideas that I’m sure you’ve already thought of are Rainbow Bridge and Westridge Market. Hope you and Morgan are well!

  2. I’ve tried this jelly several different times, as appetizers, on fish, and in sauces. It is delicious!!!

  3. I bought about ten pounds of Center Cut Pork loin to make a Crown Roast for a Christmas season dinner party. Upon opening the package, it was mostly ribs and no loin. Dinner was to be ready in 6 hours and I couldn’t figure out what to do. So, I used 1 jar of your basting jelly (without the pectin added) and marinated the meat for 3 hours in the fridge. Then, I seared the meat on the BBQ to brown it and create burn marks. The ribs went into my smoker (with Apple chips) for a 3 hour smoke. Absolutely Fabulous. The jalapeno jelly locked in the juices and clung to the ribs without excessive dripping. After 1 hour of smoking, I turned the pieces and applied another basting of jelly. My guests were in awe of the product. The apple smoke with the taste of the jalapeno is a great combination. Your jelly saved my dinner!!
