Hot Jezebel

Recipe by  

"This is a wonderful hot-sweet appetizer that guests always love -- much to their surprise! It's great for all occasions, winter and summer. You can adjust the ingredients based on whether you like it more hot or more sweet, and you can make sugar free, fat free versions, too! I got this recipe from my mother, and it's been a family favorite for years! If you do not have time to let the apricot mixture chill overnight, it will still taste delicious served immediately. Serve with your favorite crackers."

The first time I made this, I had the same problem as a number of other body was willing to try this because it looked a little odd. The next time I brought it to a party, I mixed it all up together an sprinkled a bit of paprika and fresh parsley on top. NOW people were willing to try it. It was a big hit, and I got lots of requests for the recipe.

Unfortunately this was not well received. I had a candle party with 9 people and I was the only one who tried this. If it's any consolation, I liked it. I guess I don't live in jezebel country.

I'm a southerner living in the north where no one has ever had this. I served it at a party recently and it was a big hit with my unenlightened Yankee friends. I might add a little more horseradish to taste next time, although it was absolutely delicious as the recipe is written.

Instead of black pepper, try using 1/4 teaspoon (or to taste) of red pepper flakes. It adds more kick and satisfies the need for a more desirable look. Encourage people to try to first bite and then's gone!

Loved it!!!! For those of you who enjoy more a little extra kick in the spice department. I substituted 1 Tablespoon of Chinese Mustard for one of the Tablespoons of Dijon. Everyone loved it!!!!

Everyone at my party looooooved this recipe. I was concerned about the horseradish thinking alot of people don't like it but I was pleasantly surprised! I bought Peach Preserves by mistake but it was still very good. I am making it again tonight but will use Apricot this time. I have been asked for this recipe by alot of my friends! Thanks, Lisa

I was intrigued by the odd ingredients in this dip. It was really very good, but I doubt I will make it again.

Very good and got lots of great reviews on a weekend retreat. I've made it several times with terrific success.
