We enjoy this fiery pepper spread on crackers with cream cheese. It also makes a terrific holiday gift. For a milder flavor and different color, substitute a green bell pepper, jalapeno peppers for the habaneros and green food coloring.

To be honest, I don't especially like cooking. My husband, however, loves it! Now that he's retired, Bob's taken up making jelly. I help him with the pouring and skimming for this one—my own personal favorite. It's nice as both a breakfast spread and a topping for pork or other meat. Bob and I have two grown daughters an also a grandson.

My friend and I had tried a fruity jam with jalapenos at a local vineyard and this is the version I created. At work there was a taste test comparing my different versions of the jam, and this one was voted a favorite. I like this fruity spread on crackers with cream cheese, on hamburgers or even grilled cheese. For extra heat, add the seeds of a few jalapenos to the jam.

You can spread Diane Widmer's apple butter on thick and still enjoy a breakfast that's thin on calories. She shared the recipe from her home in Blue Island, Illinois. For a smoother texture, use tender varieties such as McIntosh or Cortland apples.

My family relishes this jelly served with meat or spread on crackers with cream cheese. It's in hot demand as a gift. —Bev Elliott, Peotone, Illinois

Raspberry Plum Jam

The thing I like best about this jam is the way the plums stretch the flavor of the raspberries. I make it when plums are in season, and we enjoy it all winter long on toast or homemade bread. For a few years, my husband and I had a small acreage with chickens, rabbits and sheep. Although we now live in town, our hearts still belong in the country! We have six children—three of them grown, two teenagers plus a girl who's 10—and two grandchildren.

Homemade Lemon Curd

Lemon curd is a scrumptious spread for scones, biscuits or other baked goods. You can find it in larger grocery stores alongside the jams and jellies or with the baking supplies, but we like making it from scratch. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

"For as long as I can remember, my mom has been making this pomegranate jelly and sending us all home with a few jars." To make this jelly even more tangy, substitute cranberry juice for pomegranate juice. —Tatiana Kushnir, Montara, California
