From a recipe on pepperfool.com by Brent Thompson on 6/6/1996. I eat this on wheat thins with cream cheese and give it as holiday presents (only to people that I know love spicy foods).

This recipe is great! There is another recipe on this site that is almost identcal with the exception that this one uses 1/3 the liquid pectin the other does and that can be quire a savings! Another thing that I tried was making this with green bell peppers instead of the orange. The orange can be very expensive and I found that while I was heating this up all I had to do was add a few drops of yellow and red food coloring and it came out a beautiful orange! Thank you for a great recipe!
