Fried Catfish and Spicy Raspberry Sauce
Fry your catfish and serve this Spicy/Sweet Raspberry sauce with it.
1 jar of raspberry jam
1 jalapeno pepper chopped extremely fine
empty jar of jam into a sauce pot and stir in the jalapeno pepper chopped. Bring to a simmer and allow to cook for ten minutes. Bring back to room temp and return to jar. Remember to mark the jar as to this is spicy ( take it from me this isn't good with peanut butter on a sandwich). Serve as a dipping sauce for fish instead of tartar sauce.
