Suze McClellan's Smoked Turkey Sandwich With Jalapeno Jelly

Recipe Courtesy of Suze McClellan of Ojai, Calif.

Healthy ways to make the most out of your leftover Thanksgiving turkey.
Difficulty: Moderate
Cook Time: min


  • 2 slices of bread (I like sourdough or rye)
  • Safflower mayonnaise
  • Smoked turkey, thinly sliced
  • Pepper Jack Cheese (slices)
  • Jalapeno Jelly (either homemade or store-bought)
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato slices
  • Fresh ground salt & pepper to taste
  • For the jalapeno jelly:
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 1 and ½ cups Cider Vinegar
  • 10 large jalapenos-stemmed (seeded if you want to lessen the heat)
  • 1 large bell pepper, stemmed and seeded (green, red or yellow)
  • 1 box of Certo pectin (2 packets)
  • Cooking Directions

    Puree the peppers with the vinegar in a blender.

    Put the pepper mixture in a saucepan and add the sugar.

    Stir, and bring mixture to a boil.

    Let boil rapidly for 1 minute.

    Remove from stove and add Certo.

    Mix well and put in prepared jelly jars.


    You may want to wear gloves and a face mask -- this is a spicy mixture! I sometimes use a red bell pepper at Christmas and give as gifts to friends. It's delicious on crackers with cream cheese or on smoked meats!
