    • Jalapeno Pepper Jelly

      Homemade Jalapeno Pepper Jelly Jalapeno Pepper Jelly is a favorite when unexpected guests arrive. Cut a package of cream cheese in half, place it on a plate and pour half a jar of jalapeno jelly over it for an instant h'ourderve! They also make excellent gift basket additions.

      You'll Need:
      * 3/4 finely chopped red bell pepper
      * 3/4 cup chopped jalapeno peppers (red & green)
      * 1 Serrato chili pepper
      * 5 cups white sugar
      * 1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
      * 1 (6 fluid ounce) container liquid pectin

      Remove stems, veins and seeds from all the peppers. Chop them very very finely, set aside.
      In a 5-quart pot over high heat, combine bell peppers, jalapenos, sugar and vinegar. Bring to a rolling boil; boil for 3 minutes. Stirring constantly, add the pectin & boil hard 1 full minute.

      Pour into hot, sterilized jars and top with sterilized lids.

      Secure lids with bands and allow jars to cool slowly to seal. If you want to be sure that the peppers are even throughout the jars use Room Temperature peppers (not cold!) and flip the jars every 30 minutes when they are cooling.

      Makes about 6 half pints.

      Do NOT Double the Recipe, it won't set.

        I'm new to canning and I would really like to try this.

        Why do you not water bath it? and does it have to be liquid pectin?

        Oh, I've always wondered how the red kind gets to be red! I've made jalapeno pepper jelly, but it's always green. So good though! One of my favorite snacks, just like you posted it.

        If you don't use Liquid pectin, you will make jalapeno Syrup, not jelly.

        As for waterbath, it's personal preference, I've made jalapeno jelly like this for YEARS and never had an issue.
        If you're worried about it, you can process them for 10 minutes in a water bath canner.

        you can make up a pectin mix with apples. do a google search for apple pectin stock and have a go. there are so many recipes for it but they are all the same, just water and apples.

        Can't you use the powder stuff also? I use this type of pectin for my other jellies....

        I made this and it was a soft set. Is that the way it is suppose to be?
