      Shelia, this is a ‘jelly’ recipe, but not for toast! We make this
      periodically throughout the year as a glaze for chicken (and serve it
      over fresh spinach leaves – the kids love it!) The original recipe
      is from Recipe Source; my modifications are below.

      red pepper jelly

      recipe by :
      serving size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
      Categories : Desserts Spices

      Amount Measure Ingredient — Preparation Method


      5 To 6 red bell peppers
      1 c Cider vinegar
      2 Tbsp Lemon juice
      5 1/2 c Sugar
      1 t Salt
      1 t Chili powder
      6 oz Liquid pectin

      Makes eight eight-oz. jars.

      Wash and seed peppers; chop in food processor or grind
      in blender or meat grinder. Add enough pepper pulp to
      the vinegar and lemon juice to make four cups. Mix in
      a large kettle with sugar, salt, and chili powder.
      Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly.
      Remove from heat and add liquid pectin.

      Return to heat
      and boil hard for 1 minute; turn heat down to simmer.
      Stir and skim off foam for 5 minutes more as mixture
      boils gently. Pack in hot sterilized 8-ounce jars;
      seal and let cool on counter top. Store in
      refrigerator up to 1 year.

      We add a 1/4″ piece of grated fresh ginger root, 1/2 tsp ground
      cloves and 1/2 tsp hot pepper powder (we use our home grown
      habeneros) to ours and substitute lime juice for the lemon juice.
      We’ve also substituted powdered pectin for the liquid with good
      results. It sets up semi-soft.

      I pack it into half-pint and the little 4 oz decorative jars and
      process mine in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

      I searched for this recipe for several years after having chicken
      made with it in one of those ‘hotsy-totsy’ restaurants.
