Great jelly recipe! I had lots of habaneros in my garden, and when I came across this recipe I just had to give it a try... and I'm glad I did. I gave out a few jars and I've had lots of compliments and requests for the recipe!

This reciept rocks and my girlfriend loved it too! I didn't wear gloves which was stupid. Feels like a constant "icy-hot". I might experiment with putting some other fruits in it next time.

I made this recipe and used the low end of the habanero count and was very pleased with the out come. I like heat but I also like to taste and it turned out great. Everyone that tried the jelly fell in love with it! THANKS!

I made this yesterday. I followed the recipe exactly. It came out really great and I fear I may become addicted to the stuff. Thanks to Tish for posting it. The only peculararity I had was it took forever to set up in the jars. It did set up but it took a overnight. I don't know if that is the recipe or me but either way alls well that ends well.

Oh, wow! I halved the recipe; I used 1 huge red bell pepper and 7 red habaneros. I only removed the seeds from 4 of them and threw the remaining three in whole, membranes and all. It's red HOT, I tell you!! Excellent served with cream cheese and crackers! Thanks for the recipe!

It's also great on sandwich bread with Peanut Butter or Nutella. I made with 9 Habs, but I didn't use cheesecloth, instead I made it through step 4. Since I didn't have any cheesecloth, I just poured it into a food processor and whirled it for about five minutes, then poured it into jars, sealed them and processed by boiling water bath.

Wow, Tish, this is great! I cut it in half; used 5 habaneros, 1 yellow bell pepper and half a pkg of powdered pectin (which was too much). I didn't puree the peppers, more like shredded, and didn't strain anything. The flavor is heaven. Thank you, thank you.
