Ghost Pepper Jelly!

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Rita1652

CAUTION! You thought my Spicy Habanero Jelly was hot try this! Make in well ventilated room with gloves. Naga jolokia is a chili pepper the hottest in the world. (Was the hottest till they found the Trinidad Scorpion Moruga Blend (Moruga Scorpion)) . Mine were orange when I picked them so I opted for orange bells. If you get red ones do use red bell peppers. If you can't find the ghost chili's just use 12 habaneros or if you dare try the Scorpion!

I was so excited to find this recipe! I won't recommend changes to this recipe (as it annoys me when others do). I will say everyone's tolerance to capsaicin is different, you can adjust the number of peppers in this. Mine has been Now & Later, of course, referring to the heat.
