I tried this jelly and it did not thicken. I am not why as I followed the direction exactly. The taste is great, just wish I could get it to thicken up.

I wrote a review last night, which hasn't shown up yet...saying it didn't thicken, well by this morning it did! So....just takes longer than others, not sure why! It's a beautiful jelly! Thanks for posting!

I used this recipe to make red pepper jelly.It worked out great. Just add 3tbsp. red crushed peppers and red food coloring to final mixture. Excellent on crackers with cream cheeze.
