This is wonderful! This recipe made 6-8oz jelly jars, I made 2 batches so I would have some to give as gifts. Beautiful color!!
Fabulous!! I have made this twice this week with fresh jalapenos from the garden. It was so good the first time that I decided to make more as gifts. I used 2 packages of pectin the second time and found that it set too fast to even get in the jars. This recipe is a keeper but I will be making it with the amount of pectin called for and a few extra jalapenos.
This is great everyone loves it!!! I'm making two more batches..I did use two packets of the liquid fruit pectin, after reading the reviews, and also used 1-1/2 cups of jalapenos and left the seeds in 10 of them, it has a bite but I think I would like it a little hotter. Thank you for sharing this recipe its great:)Judy
Have to give this a 5 just for the easy part alone. I added 2 pouches of liquid pectin like others recommended and I added extra jalapeno's. Oh and I also added a few drops red food coloring because the juice didn't quite make it red enough. I used Ocean Spray cranberry juice. It looks beautiful. I maybe only used 1 extra jalapeno over half cup so I hope it tastes great as I didn't taste test if while making it.
This is a great recipe, love the color and taste. I added more peppers and some garlic after the first batch(it was a little mild for my taste). Turned out great and I am planning on sharing this recipe with a great many others!!!
Looks like you may have been one of the first members on Zaar, but it seems you aren't here anymore. Anyway this was something a little different from your ordinary hot pepper jelly. Love the colour using the cranberry juice- I used cran-raspberry as that was what I had. Also added a couple of cloves of garlic when I was processing the peppers, and added a couple of red chili peppers from the garden for added colour. I don't bother putting jellies in a water bath and they sealed just fine. Just remember to rotate the jars as they're cooling to distribute the solids. A lovely addition to my store of preserves- thanks!
Good stuff!! We have made several batches and I gave the recipe to my parents who love it also. I didn't skim much before jarring, I wanted as many of the peppers in the jelly as possible. I turned the jars occassionally as they cooled to help distribute the peppers throughout the jar. What a wonderful sweet/hot flavor on toast! Thank you so much.
This is a great recipe. Nice colour and flavour. I added extra jalepenos to give it a little more kick.
Awesome! Being from New Orleans, I like things SPICY! I've tried several other Pepper Jelly recipes and have always been disappointed because it's always been runny and lacking in flavor (even the Tabasco brand is a bit bland). I used 2 cups chopped jalapenos, generic cranberry juice, 2 pouches of Certo, and 3 drops red food coloring. Beautiful color, flavor that is outta this world! While it did set fast (I wish I could use 1 1/2 pouches instead of 2) it is a nice "jelly" consistency - other recipes have always been too runny. Definitely will make lots more of this while peppers are in season.
Easy to make and tastes great!
