I assume that this unique, fiery spread was named after the evil biblical temptress, but whatever its linguistic source,
In a large bowl, combine the preserves, jelly, and vinegar and stir till well blended. Add the horseradish, peppercorns, mustard, and salt and stir till well blended. Chill the spread, covered, at least 2 hours, then spoon it over the cream cheese on two crystal serving plates or trays and serve with assorted crackers.
