Jalapeno Peach Cornbread

Although any of our jams, jellies or preserves are good with this recipe, we like the Jalapeño Peach because it goes with so many of our southwest-themed recipes. It’s especially great with our Mexitalian Chiligetti!

Prep Time:  15 minutes
Cook Time:  20 minutes

Preheat oven to 400°. Place 1/2 teaspoon oil in each section of a 12-cup large muffin tin. Place dry ingredients in large mixing bowl; mix well. Add eggs and oil to dry mixture. Slowly add milk until mixture is not too thick, but not “runny.” Place 2-3 tablespoons mixture in each muffin section; make a well and add 1 tablespoon Fischer & Wieser Jalapeño Peach Preserves. Top off with 1-2 more tablespoons cornmeal mixture, sealing edges and completely covering preserves. Bake 20 minutes or until browned. 12 large muffins

Note:  Any of our jams, jellies or preserves may be used with this recipe.

Major Cleaton’s Dutch Oven Bread Recipe

Major Cleaton, who is featured on our blog,  sent us this recipe for use with our Fischer & Wieser  Old Fashioned Peach Preserves. Try this at your next cookout—as he says, “Those delicious preserves slathered on homemade bread—great! A little taste of home reminds us of why we’re doing what we do.” Major Cleaton*, who is now with the 1st Medical Brigade at Ft. Hood, has been deployed in Iraq for three tours, and is now back Stateside.

Prep Time:  20 minutes
Cook Time:  15-25 minutes

  • 3 cups self rising flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ tablespoon finely chopped 1015 onion
  • ¼ teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 12-ounce can beer
  • 1 16-ounce container sweet cream butter
  • 2-3 jars (10.9 ounce) Fischer & Wieser Old Fashioned Peach Preserves

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Pour in beer. Mix together well; place on floured board.
Knead just a little; form dough into a ball. Flatten out and place in well greased Dutch Oven. Place oven over coals (1/3 coals on bottom and 2/3 on top). Allow to cook in hot coals approximately 10 minutes. Turn Dutch oven 180 degrees and then turn lid 180 degrees in opposite direction. After the bread has baked for 15-25 minutes, check it. The top should be golden brown and the bottom should THUMP when you hit it.

Slice and slather with sweet cream butter and Fischer & Wieser Old Fashioned Peach Preserves.  Yield: approximately 10 slices

*I present the above recipe as sent to us by Major Cleaton:

“Anyway, here is the Dutch oven bread recipe.

  • 3 cups self rising flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tbsp finely chopped 1015 onion
  • 6 pack Lone Star Beer
  • ¼ tsp chili flakes
  • 1/8th tsp garlic powder
  • 6 pack Milwaukee’s Best; Pabst Blue Ribbon; or other generic beer.

Mix all the dry stuff
Pour in 1 Lone Star
Drink 1 Lone Star
Mix up and lay on work surface
Knead just a little to form dough ball
Flatten out and place in well greased Dutch Oven
Place oven over coals (1/3 coals on bottom and 2/3 on top)
Drink another Lone Star
Turn Dutch oven 180 degrees and then turn lid 180 degrees in opposite direction
Give a Pabst to everyone who starts to wander over when they smell the bread cooking (It’s rude not to have a beer for your guests….. but keep the Lone Star for yourself!)
After the bread has baked for 15-25 minutes (about 2 ½ Lone Stars) check it
The top should be golden brown and the bottom should THUMP when you hit it.
Cut it up and cover it with sweet cream butter and Fischer & Wieser’s Old Fashioned Peach Preserves.”

Sweet & Savory Onion Glaze Cornbread Stuffing

So many meals can be better by serving stuffing alongside the main course. Why wait for a holiday or special occasion to enjoy this hearty treat?

Prep Time:  20 minutes
Bake Time:  30-45 minutes

½ cup Fischer & Wieser Sweet & Savory Onion Glaze
3 eggs, well beaten
6 cups baked cornbread, roughly cubed into medium to large pieces
1 onion, yellow or white, finely chopped
4 celery stalks, washed and finely chopped
6-8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
½-1 teaspoon salt, to taste
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix Fischer & Wieser Sweet & Savory Onion Glaze and eggs together in large mixing bowl and whisk briskly. Add remainder of ingredients to bowl and toss together to mix well. (The cornbread will break into smaller pieces, don’t worry. This makes the final result better.) Place the mixture into a 9”x13”x2” glass casserole which has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Place in oven and bake for 30-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serves 6

Obviously this is a basic recipe, there are many additions/changes you can make to dress up this dressing and call it your own. Some might be: add more vegetables like bell peppers, chopped carrots, mushrooms, use sausage instead of bacon, or even add more eggs to increase your moistness–and of course our favorite is use more of the onion glaze.
