    Ridgely's Note:

    Ever since I made the Brie Kisses appetizer recipe I have become addicted to Hot Pepper jelly. I spent a small fortune on small jars and then decided to try to make it myself. Well lets just say I don't have the nack for jelly making. However a friend of mine told me this method and boy my life has changed forever and it takes a whole five minutes to make. Okay, realistically less than 10 minutes depending on how fast you are with a knife.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (14 ounce) jar apple jelly
    • 2 -3 finely chopped jalapeno peppers


    1. 1
      Spoon out apple jelly into a saucepan.
    2. 2
      Add chopped jalapenos.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil and let boil for 2 minutes.
    4. 4
      (This could also be done in a microwave).
    5. 5
      You can add a drop or two of food coloring if you want.
    6. 6
      Pour mixture into sterilized jar and lid; turn upside down for 5 minutes, then upright and it will seal.
    7. 7
      Or you can do it the lazy the way like I did- I poured it back into the jar I bought the apple jelly in (didn't even rinse the jar out), tightened the lid on and turn upside down and it sealed itself again.
    8. 8
      (I should put a disclaimer that I am not sure if you should do it the lazy way or not-but I keep the jar in the frig-no worries!).

      This did not jell for me. I don't know what I did wrong. I went by the recipe, exactly. I put three jalapenos in, seeds and all, and a banana pepper, I think it was, and it is way too hot. We like hot, but that is too hot. I am going to get some more apple jelly, and try again. It is so hard to know just how much peppers to put in.

      I love the whole idea of this simple recipe but mine did not "jell" back up. I have more of a sauce that would probably be great on chicken or pork fillets. But I really thought it would be more of a jelly that I could put over a block of cream cheese. Does anyone have any ideas of what happened or how I might get the consistency I want?? Thanks for any advice!!

      I was just about to order some pepper & onion relish from Harry & David's when I came across this recipe. It's delicious & a whole lot cheaper! Plus, you don't have to wait on it to be delivered! Thanks for sharing!
