Several years ago I was house sitting for a friend of mine. She insisted that I try her raspberry pepper jam while I was there. I had never heard of a jam made with hot peppers. The next morning I had remembered the jam, so I put it on my morning toast. I thought the raspberries were wonderful but I did not notice any pepper flavor Until . . . . a minute or so after I had taken my first bite. Then came the unexpected kick. It was quite a surprise. It was the best jam that I had ever eaten. This experience prompted me to try a pepper flavored coffee. I do not like coffee but I thought it would be fun to try it on my husband. I had to make it on the mild side because he does not appreciate spicy drinks as much as I do. As it turned out he did not particularly like the flavor of the coffee because he enjoys classic coffee. On the other-hand I tried it and liked it. It surprised me because I like the smell of coffee when you first open a new container and while it is brewing, but have never acquired a taste for it. I will drink coffee on occasion as long as I use this recipe.
