We have so many apples ripe on the trees I've been looking for as many recipes as I can find. Love pepper jelly so gave this a try. So easy, don't even have to peel or core the apples. It is sweet but I just upped the amount of pepper and it was fine. Looks so pretty too. I also added a few drops of yellow food color for appearance. Great recipe, love it
This is a good recipe but I tweaked it just a little. I added about 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper and 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes as it was a bit sweet. For a brighter color I also added about 1/2 teaspoon green food coloring. I am anxious to give this as gifts for Christmas.
Oh gotta try this too! Woo hoo! Jelly
