Cheesy Pepper Jelly Cigars

Start with store-bought phyllo dough and a few ounces of Seven Sisters cheese from The Farm at Doe Run. Add a little melted butter and a slathering of Tait Farm Food’s Apple Pepper Jam. Before you know it, you have a remarkable hors d’oeuvre to pair with a local wine. Served with a healthy green salad, you can even serve them up as a Meatless Monday entrée.
